Gearank Recommendation

The Pignose Legendary 7-100 appeared on our recommended list for Guitar Amps Under $100 from February 2018 until July 2019.


The Pignose Legendary 7-100 is an interesting little amp. It’s very dependent on the use of your guitar volume and tone controls, as evidenced by the lack of onboard controls the amp has. With that in mind, the amp is incredibly responsive to your guitar controls. By using the volume control on your guitar, you can clean up the amp pretty well.

Something to keep in mind with this amp is that it’s not a great choice if you’re looking for an amp for great cleans. The Legendary 7-100 is geared more towards overdriven and fuzz tones as opposed to bright or jazzy cleans.

An interesting feature of the amp is that you can also run the preamp section through a different amp. This is different than amps that use an extension cab, because you can actually run the amp at a higher wattage. This allows you to get a volume that’s suitable for live performances while still retaining the unique grit that the Pignose line is known for.

Although a price increase made it ineligible for the recommended list of amps under $100, you can still see excellent options in this price range in our guide to The Best Cheap Guitar Amps Under $100.
