Rory Gallagher’s Dwarf Amp

Rory Gallagher used a Dwarf amp as a practice amp, and just in general for warming up and for playing his electric guitar outside of a stage setup.

I used to bring a Martin around with me, but now I’ve got a tune-up amp called a Dwarf, it’s like the Pig-nose, but you know the way the Pignose is very fuzzy. This one’s dead clean, but you can fuzz it up if you want.

Rory Gallagher, International Musician 1976

The Dwarf amp was produced from 1974 to 1079 by a company called Twenty-First Century Products located in Ignacio, CA. It was a small battery or cable-powered amp advertised as a “low-noise portable recording amplifier”.
