Positive Grid, known for their smart guitar technology, are celebrating 10 years of innovation with an interactive anniversary event that they say honors a decade of re-shaping the way guitarists play and create music.
Capturing the same spirit of fun and exploration that they say is found in their best-selling Spark practice amp and award-winning BIAS FX 2 software, Positive Grid is launching several new products; bringing back the fan favorite Spark Pearl; releasing exclusive new artist content; debuting their Ignite Sessions original video series; and much more.
Guitarists everywhere are invited to participate in anniversary celebrations and user spotlights, and to sign up to be notified as new content and products are announced.
Here's more details in Positive Grid's own words...
New Products and the Return of Spark Pearl
Back by popular demand for the celebration is the distinctive Spark Pearl guitar practice amp. Spark Pearl is elegantly styled in a snowy white finish trimmed with gold piping, and it offers the same smart guitar features as the original best-selling Spark.
Throughout the celebration, a variety of new products for guitarists and songwriters will also be unveiled on the Positive Grid website. Sign up here to be notified when they go live.
Ignite Sessions: Exclusive Artist and Guitar Experiences
In honor of the 10 year anniversary, Positive Grid is helping guitarists reconnect with their instrument and fuel their love of guitar with the new Ignite Sessions. An original video series presented in collaboration with a lineup of celebrated guitarists, Ignite Sessions helps inject new energy into guitar and help users play smarter and more creatively.
The first Ignite Session, "Don't Practice, Just Play: Get Better While Having Fun Playing Guitar" featuring viral influencer, session guitarist, and producer Nicholas Veinoglou, can be viewed below, where players can also sign up to be the first to know about future episodes.

Some of guitar's most influential creators, including Darrell Braun, Emily Hastings and Danilo Vicari will be offering a glimpse of the next ten years of music and guitar. The 10th Anniversary Celebration creator series will feature their predictions for the future of sound, technique, style, and smart tools.
All musicians can share their own predictions on social media using #FuturePositive for the chance to be featured on Positive Grid's website and social channels.
Honoring the Past While Looking Forward
Positive Grid was established by a small team of engineers and musicians with the goal to combine music technology and innovative product design. Today, the company develops engaging and forward-thinking hardware and software-based tools such as the #1 best-selling Spark guitar practice amp and award-winning BIAS FX 2 that disrupt the traditional way people learn and make music.
Laura B. Whitmore, senior vice president of marketing, reflects, "When Positive Grid was founded, our leaders made a promise to themselves and to musicians to incorporate advanced technology in a way that inspires the love of playing music and makes it accessible and fun for all. We are proud to be a pioneer in smart guitar playing and learning, and are excited to share what the next 10 years will bring!"
