Rory Gallagher’s Selmer Little Giant Amplifier

This was the first amplifier that ever Rory had purchased together with his first electric guitar – a Rosetti Solid 7.

I played along on the acoustic guitar for a couple of years, and about the age of 12 I got an electric guitar – a Rosetti Solid Seven with a Little Giant Selmer.

The amp, unfortunately, wasn’t for too long with Rory, as he stated in a later interview that he wished that he still had it.

I had a Selmer Little Giant 4-watt amplifier, too, which I would really love to have now for a practice amp. It sounded something like one of those Pignose things.
