Black Friday is just under a month away yet we’ve already got our first major sale launched with Positive Grid offering massive savings on Spark amps and 60% off a huge range of BIAS modeling software. We’re expecting the Black Friday guitar deals to start ramping up as the month goes on, and this is a great way to get started with money off some of the best desktop guitar amps and amp modeling software around.

Our favorite smart amp also has a lovely discount with $40 off the Spark Mini, which delivers a powerful tone in a tiny, desktop-friendly package and got itself a rare five stars out of five in our review. I have one on my desk right now and I use it pretty much daily to hash out ideas, practice licks, or just take a break from coming up with catchy headlines.

Positive Grid Black Friday: Save big on smart amps

Positive Grid Black Friday: Save big on smart amps
The early launch of Positive Grid’s Black Friday sale is a great chance to score some significant savings on desktop amps, amp modeling software, and accessories. Only available while supplies last, it’s the perfect chance to pick up a great deal instead of waiting around til the end of the month.

There’s plenty more on offer too and we spied the Positive Grid Riff audio interface well below the $100 mark at just $69, which is an incredible price for a full-featured recording solution designed specifically for guitarists. In our review we praised for its no-nonsense approach to recording, giving it a healthy four and a half stars out of five.

If you already own a Spark smart amp, there are some excellent discounts on accessories available. We saw the SPark Traveler Bag is half price at just $30, which is incredible value for money. If you have a Spark Mini, you can spruce it up with the super cool-looking crimson grille, reduced by a massive $30 to bring it down to just $20.

There are some phenomenal software deals as well if you’re looking to upgrade your recording rig. There’s a massive $270 off BIAS Essential and an even bigger $480 reduction on the BIAS Platinum edition which features the entire software which features the entire software collection. Recently upgraded with all-new impulse responses, PG’s BIAS is firmly back at the forefront of amp modeling with its phenomenal sound and extensive feature set.
