With digital audio being as good as it is today, having a digital guitar amp doesn’t seem as farfetched as it once did. The ability to add new amp heads and effects to quickly change your sound with an app is a groundbreaking push by Positive Grid, and this update doesn’t disappoint.

Adding three new amps and pedals to select from, the Spark Gear Drop makes their digital guitar amp even more enticing.

First up in new additions is the ODS 50, inspired by the Dumble ODS 50 HRM which is a boutique amp with sought after clarity owned by Stevie Ray Vaughn and Carlos Santana. Next, is the Blues Boy, inspired by Fender’s Blues Junior, which is a tube combo amp and lastly the 6508, inspired by the Peavey 6505 which is one for the heavy metal guitarists!

With regards to pedals, there’s the Clone Drive, inspired by the Klon Centaur which is an extremely rare overdrive pedal which is clean as a whistle. There’s two EQ pedals here too, one for guitar and one for bass, both 6 band graphic EQs optimised for each instrument.

This Gear Drop update is available for all users of Spark amps and is available now.
