    You know the song ‘have a cigar’ by Pink Floyd? And at the end, they produced it so that it sounds like all of the music gets sucked down and drops in volume, and sounds as if it is being played through an old a.m. radio with a 2 inch speaker? This sounds just like that.

    I'll take it....ship it to my uncle's in Michigan - once the border opens back up who knows when I'll pick it up. This would make a great donation along with a guitar to a kid learning to play in my area....

    Yes I know it's tiny and runs on batteries, it will be great! Thanks!

    They definitely aren’t great, but not without their uses. Steve Albini had Jawbreaker use one on some of the tracks on 24 Hour Revenge Therapy, I personally love that record.

    If you mod to use a cab, your mouth will touch the floor.....
    Or if you put a sm57 in front same.
    What you expect from a 2” speaker or 30 bucks a princeton reverb? LOL
    All that amps are for fuzzy tones at low vol.
    Any other amp can sound clean at low vol.

    They are fine. You can’t beat the compact size. Frankly, the Danelectro sounded better and louder, at about half the price.
    This was for a project and didn’t get used, glad it’s going to someone who will use it.

    I love this description. It's the opposite of a "hard sell". :)

    Something like that is good to keep in the car for when you run into an electric guitar and need an amp for a simple test.

    I did that with a Danelectro Honeytone amp and it's a night and day difference with the 1x12 cab.

    I have a "mini Marshall " amp as well.
    I like to use mine like a pedal mostly, although it's stereo with 2 speakers and 1 watt and sounds much better as a standalone unit then most of the other offerings from Marshall in this range.
    Mine has a line out that you can plug into to a bigger amps input on the front, pre-amp in on the back, or just skip the amp and go line out to the soundboard.
    Sounds really cool when boosted with one of these methods.
    It also has an Aux in so you can use your phone or MP3 player to play backing tracks etc. through it as well.
    As far as I know, and I could be wrong, the only way to get one of these is to buy the gig-bag that it comes attached to!
    A worthy investment on it's own, it's an excellent gig-bag, well padded and thought out, even folds to act as a stand for the amp.
    Battery operated, or you can use a wallwart to power inside.
    Just so you know what I'm referring to, here's a few pics

    Just thought I'd share something cool from my Marshall collection.

    Wow, that's cool, never seen one before! Modern twist on the old Silvertone or Peavey amp-in-the-hard-case setup.

    The amp-in-case and gig-bag amp IS pretty cool. However, for me, the Electrocaster made all such accouterments superfluous.

    You can make them usable. I have a fender one and I could get by with it if I absolutely had to.

    They're certainly Fender apostles. Bass 6/Bassman, Jazzmaster/Showman?Bandmaster? Reverb. Stratocaster/Tremolux.

    I have the Fender mini twin. The trick is to turn your guitar way down, cleans up pretty nice and sounds good. I use it a lot, clean and no distortion.

    That's the way to get clean sound out of a Pignose, too.

    But I likes it dirty. :)
