So I need to get my boyfriend a portable amp for christmas...but I don't really know much of anything about guitars...

So I was looking at two different ones, the Danelectro Honeytone or the Pignose 7-100..


So can someone tell me which is better and if the honeytone is infact portable? Cause I'm not really sure. Also, if there is an affordable ($50 range) portable amp that's better, I'm all ears


One more thing, so if I get this and some xbox live points for him, is that a good enough christmas present?

Of those two, I would take the Pignose, but to be honest, they're not really that great. They're more like toys than legitimate amplifiers.

If you can afford this, I recommend it

It is portable but has a wide range of much better sounds. It usually goes for 99 dollars but sometimes you can find a good deal.

But either way, I think it's a pretty awesome present.

You won't find anything good for 50$, please consider another gift


Something that will be really good, your BF will appreciate a really good non-musician gift than a budget amp

Roland micro cube, but it depends on your budget.

consider a vox amplug.

it's really the most usable thing under $50.

you plug it into the guitar, and plug headphones into it. makes for a good quiet practice.

I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

The amplug's cool: I assumed she wanted somethin with a speaker for buskin and such tho.

I have a Pignose . It takes 6 AA batteries. I have had some fun on it but It's a problem to bring anywhere and construction is disappointing to be hard on my stuff and avoid using it because i know i will break it . I randomly picked up a Supro Mini Smokey amp about $35.00 it is so much fun and only takes one 8volt battery and has impressive sound for fitting in my hand ... We ended up buying one for each guitar case and I made one into a belt buckle. The sound is high gain but you will love this little amp if you want a portable.... I think your boyfriends a lucky guy ...and this is a great gift !

I second the mircocube or the amplugs.

The microsoft points would be good but I'd say get him gold membership. The only good thing about the points are the add-ons for games which he may not want. Everyone wants gold membership, you know he'll use it.

Or just get him this:

I don't think so.

How can I persuade her?

Thank you to everyone that replied I found a bunch of great bids on ebay. Thanks for all the advice and again, I really had no idea what to look for so this really helped.
And btw, rubbersoul was right about the amplug,

Hope everyone has a good holiday

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Yeah, I think you take what greg said with a pinch of salt.

Or maybe a whole handful.
