I have some seriously nice gear in the studio. Although this won't make that list - it is still über mud bath cool.
Recently, I was remembering back to '79 when I used to goof around on a little pignose. I was telling my wife about it and low and behold a little piggy was under the tree on Christmas morning. I plugged it in (she got the ac adapter as well) grabbed that little chrome plated pig nose shaped volume knob and gave it a twirl to about 7-8 and I swear this was some of the most fun I have have had in a long time. LO FI bliss.
A few days later I plugged it in before the input on my Suhr Badger 18 and that was fun too. I used to play live with a pig as a Pre when I was first playing shows, so I thought what the heck. I would love a Pignose model in my AFX-II. And a Pignose iR as well.
Cheap thrills - A ton of fun.
