Positive Grid, makers of the popular BIAS Amp and BIAS FX guitar amp-and-effects processor software, have today announced the introduction of BIAS Mini amplifiers, BIAS Twin pedals, and BIAS Footswitch — the newest products in their innovative line of hardware. The BIAS Mini is a half-rack amplifier that comes in two versions, Guitar and Bass — each one specially designed to be “the most versatile amplifier on the planet for the gigging musician”, say its makers. The BIAS Twin Delay, Modulation, and Distortion pedals are Positive Grid’s newest line of professional effects. All three pedals feature the same tone as the award-winning BIAS Pro pedals, in a compact 2-button pedal format. The BIAS Footswitch comes in a 4 button form and allows users to easily control any Positive Grid BIAS hardware product.
Both BIAS Mini Guitar and BIAS Mini Bass are compact heads and feature many of the same capabilities of the flagship BIAS Head in a compact 300W (BIAS Mini Guitar) and 600W (BIAS Mini Bass) form factor. BIAS Mini amps feature front panel controls, Effects Loop, XLR Balanced Output and MIDI I/O. BIAS Mini amps come loaded with eight factory presets that are easily modified thanks to seamless integration with BIAS Amp software allowing musicians to build their dream tone via the built-in Bluetooth and/or USB connections.
The new BIAS Twin pedals — Distortion, Delay, and Modulation — bring the sound of the BIAS Pro pedal series to players who want a compact, lightweight (850g) and portable pedal. BIAS Twin pedals are compact 2-button full metal stomp-boxes and each comes with 9 different preloaded tones that can be easily modified with the 6 tweak knobs, and feature USB and Bluetooth connections that make them compatible with the iPad / PC or Mac BIAS Pedal software. The Twin pedal can be powered with 9V adapters and includes ¼" TRS input and ¼" stereo outputs.
Finally, the BIAS Footswitch is a solidly built metal foot controller that allows Positive Grid hardware owners to control their devices hands-free. Thanks to a power-saving feature and a claimed maximum performance of up to 24 hours continuous use, BIAS Footswitch owners simply need 2 AA batteries and the included ¼" TRS included cable to control their devices onstage or in the studio.
