Positive Grid announces Experience Jimi Hendrix Official Gear Collection for Spark and BIAS FX 2

Positive Grid

As part of their 10th anniversary celebration, Positive Grid has announced Experience Jimi Hendrix Official Gear Collection for Spark and BIAS FX 2. Created in collaboration with Authentic Hendrix, LLC, this official, curated collection offers interactive access to the tones, historic gear, imagery and storied performance moments of the most celebrated guitar icon of all time.

Here's what they say:

Positive Grid used its expertise as a pioneer in smart guitar technology to create a unique homage to a six-string trailblazer who disrupted the status quo of guitar playing. The Spark guitar practice amp and BIAS FX 2 amp-and-effects software (desktop/mobile) have been enhanced and customized to deliver this new experience. Guitarists can now immerse themselves in the sounds, images and stories of Jimi Hendrix and feel the energy of his unique tone firsthand.

Intimate Access to Historic Gear

Experience Jimi Hendrix Official Gear Collection is available for Positive Grid's Spark smart guitar practice amp and for the BIAS FX 2 desktop or mobile versions. Guitarists can play and experiment with a selection of meticulously re-created effects and amps from Hendrix's famed collection of gear that helped define his unmistakable sound. BIAS FX 2 users can also add two guitars to the BIAS FX 2 Guitar Match feature that allows any guitar to be transformed into another.

Auto Tone for Spark

Spark users can select Hendrix songs in the accompanying Spark app. Then, as they play along with songs, the tones and presets will automatically change in real time to reflect the original guitar nuances exclusive to Hendrix.

Jimi's Gear

Spark and BIAS FX 2 users can click on a piece of historic gear to learn about its background and how Jimi used it, then preview or apply the related presets to jam on their own.

Famous Moments

Custom-designed for BIAS FX 2 and the Spark app, Famous Moments offers an interactive journey through the career of Jimi Hendrix, illustrating how he forever changed the art of guitar. Users can view an exclusively curated timeline of significant Hendrix events, then expand it to learn more and select milestone songs associated with the moments to jam along with.

Laura B. Whitmore, Positive Grid's SVP of Marketing, notes:

After many hours of research and painstaking attention to detail, our team thoughtfully designed a collection that pays tribute to this guitar legend. It allows all generations of guitarists to experience the indelible mark he left on the world of music in a super-realistic way that immerses them in the unique sounds and imagery associated with Jimi Hendrix.

Odd, a Jimi Hendrix firmware upgrade and $20 purchase still does not allow SPARK to actually play the Jimi Hendrix included wah pedal manually (perhaps via Bluetooth MIDI). Oh well, the new amp model J.H.45/100 is worth the $20 imho, being comfortably between a high gain ENGL model, and a less aggressive Marshall model. STILL miss an expression pedal on this darn SPARK Amp. A FX loop would have worked to interject a real wah pedal as well I suppose. ymmv. cheers.
