Small and Portable: The Spark Go from Positive Grid
The Positive Grid Spark Go is a small, portable guitar amplifier that packs a big punch. While at NAMM 2023, I got to hear it, and it didn’t sound like other mini amps.
It had teeth.
The Spark mini amp features a 5-watt speaker, and is a Class -D amplifier. The amp comes with 33 model sounds, and 43 effects.
Plug in the guitar with the 1/4″ plug, and headphones if you need to rock quieter. Bluetooth and a USB port are available to connect to the Spark to your audio, pair the Spark Pedal, or send to your DAW.
The Spark Go is compatible with the Spark app, which gives you access to even more amp models, effects, and backing tracks. The app also allows you to learn new songs and techniques, and it can be used to control your Go from your phone or tablet.
I got to hear a few performances from the mini amp at the show. The best part was you could have two guitarists with their own amp placed so they could hear themselves. The first jam I missed the solo, but in the second jam, I was able to catch both guitars.
I am really impressed on the ease of use with the app, and how you can switch up by pressing a button on the unit, or pairing the Spark pedal. I can see buskers, practicing musicians, or even back-bar jammers use this to let people hear the sounds.
Price and Availability
The Go will be out in June at $149. Positive Grid is running a pre-order special for $109.
