Launched back in 2019, the original Positive Grid Spark smart guitar amp was an absolute phenomenon when it first landed. If you were in the market for an intelligent practice amp the Spark delivered a huge range of feature that made home practice easy, great sounding and fun! The release of the new Spark Mini sees Positive Grid shaking up the amp world once again. While the pre-order window for the Mini is closing, you can still take advantage of some new early-adopter deals, including a saving of $50 when you purchase the Spark Mini and Spark Control wireless footswitch together (opens in new tab). Positive Grid will even throw in an extra crimson grille that's usually worth $50.
While this new version of the celebrated Spark is a considerable downsize on the OG unit, it still boasts all of the features you’ve come to expect from Positive Grid – albeit with a simplified control layout, with only Preset, Guitar and Music knobs remaining on the physical amp. The much-loved Auto Chords feature – which analyzes songs and displays chords in real-time – is still accessible via the Spark app, as well as Video Capture, which allows you to record high-quality video and audio, perfect for budding YouTubers.
Positive Grid Spark Mini + Control:
$338, now $288 (opens in new tab)
This ‘early bird’ offer sees $50 slashed off the miniature smart amp, if you bundle it with the clever wireless Spark Control footswitch! Just add the code CONTROL20 at checkout. You also get a bonus crimson grille thrown in for free, so you can change the look of your new amp whenever you fancy.
Powered by their award-winning Bias tone engine, you’ll never run out of sounds or inspiration, with over 10,000+ tones available, ranging from realistic amp models to perfect recreations of classic effects pedals.
Now, if you fancy taking advantage of this early offer, you’ll want to be quick. As of writing this, 53900 people have currently signed up for pre-order notification, with 152 sold just minutes after the site went live. The 'super early bird' offer appears to have sold out already, which saw $50 off the purchase price. If you don't want the Spark Control pedal, you can still save $30 off the Spark Mini amp (opens in new tab) (complete with custom grille), dropping the price from $229 down to $199.
Positive Grid is also currently offering up to 50% off its award-winning BIAS software (opens in new tab), including the Jimi Hendrix package.
We anticipate the offers to evolve as specific deals sell out over the coming days, so be sure to check the Positive Grid site (opens in new tab) for up-to-date information on pricing.
