 What small amps do you guys play through? I have a microcube, but I am looking to trade it in for a Pig Nose, or something small like that. My only apprehension with the Pignose is if I have to…Continue

"I would probably wind up picking up a variety of tobaccos . I remember getting some real flavorful stuff from the local pipe shop. One was a blend called Hawaiian, and another was a coffee blend. I also like the standard blends. "

"Would you load it with an aromatic or a smokey English? I mostly smoke English. Aromatics just have too much moisture and get too hot for me. There is one that is slightly aromatic and sort of herbal called Crooner because it was Bing Crosby's…"

"Gypsy,  I have had a Romeo & Juliet and while it was a good smoke, I was less than impressed after smoking a cohiba. Right now I have a sampler selection that I am smoking my way through from Holts.com I like to switch between them and the…"

"I'm at 1 to 2 a week, and a few pipefuls since I collect and sell pipes. I am hoping to one day smoke a havana before I go. I do love a cigar though. Everything about them. I brought a cbg into the shop last week, and a guy loved it and asked…"

"I love a good cigar! Smoke about 2-3 per week. It's fun to show the cigar shop owners what I do with their boxes. I tried to sell a couple on consignment at a cigar store but found no takers. CBG's attract guitar players  more so than…"

"Welp, last night I had my first cigar since around 2002 and...I didn’t like it. I mean, it was fine blowing smoke rings and kicking back for a bit, but it didn’t take long for a real aversion to the taste in my mouth to develop. Kind of…"

"The Blackstar Fly 3 is what you need. It is light weight and has fantastic sound. Can be played clean or with distortion and also has delay. They are a steal at $59. Russ"

"I agree!...those micro cube are fantastic...the pig nose sounds great but is a one trick pony, no effects and half the fun"

CboxGypsy replied to CboxGypsy's discussion Pig Nose Amp
"The issue is not that I'm unhappy with the microcube. I have been very happy with it. I just don't ever get to play plugged in much because I do all my practicing at night, and more or less am an acoustic player. I like the way these…"

"The Pig nose is a good little rig thats true , i have a old Messa boggie 50 that ive had for years my stage rig which my Son jasper has in his room with his guitars and the old effects board but i found it to much to lug around so i got a Delta Twin…"

Tom T replied to CboxGypsy's discussion Pig Nose Amp
"I have a Pignose and a Roland Cube 10. I love them both. The Pignose is basic, but it does sound good as you turn it up. One big drawback for me is the lack of an Auxiliary input like the Roland has. That's a great feature playing jam tracks. I…"

ChickenboneJohn replied to CboxGypsy's discussion Pig Nose Amp
"If you're not happy with a Roland MicroCube, you won't be happy with anything. You can't get much smaller or lighter and still get a decent sound. I like the Pignose (I sell them in my online store), but it is old school electronics…"
