"You weren't specific about the parts, "volume & tone slider control" seems to suggest an on-board pre-amp??? so there might be impedance issues that will affect the quality of the sound it puts out if the piezo rod is switched for…"

"Hi Jon. I don't work with piezos, but I've worked with a lot of single coils, I would think that the small gauge p/u wire would be fine with piezos conversions. Any other takers?"

"Not really comparable with eachother..the hodad is a brilliant little pocket size personal amp and comes in real cheap while the pignose is your classic busker amp,,what it lacks in model features it more than makes up for in volume and tone."
