Positive Grid Announces the Spark Control

Positive Grid Announces the Spark Control

A wireless, customizable foot controller that offers seamless integration with Spark, a library of innovative features and functions.


Spark Control is fully customizable to provide convenient access to many of the amp’s popular features for practice and jamming. Plus, it will be compatible with future Spark firmware or app updates.

Going beyond a traditional foot controller that simply switches between presets and tones, Spark Control gives comprehensive control for their Spark amp. It comes with four pre-programmed scenarios that assign a combination of popular functions to each switch based on commonly used setups. Users can also save their favorite functions to four of their own scenarios for easy access, and store up to a total of eight scenarios. This level of customization gives users immediate, hands-free access to a wider selection of Spark's features, allowing them to stay in the flow of their playing experience.

Designed for a convenient experience right out of the box, Spark Control uses a plug and play wireless Bluetooth connection that works seamlessly with the Spark amp and app. It’s also battery powered, and can run for more than four months on a single charge.

The session ace’s signature model offers a wide range of tones at the flip of a switch … or five.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. Not long ago, I came home late from a band rehearsal, still overly excited about the new songs we played. I got myself a coffee (I know, it's a crazy procedure to calm down) and turned on the TV. I ended up with an old Bonanza episode from the ’60s, the mother of all Western TV series. Hearing the theme after a long time instantly reminded me of the great Al Caiola, who is the prolific session guitarist who plays on the song. With him in mind, I looked up the ’60s Epiphone “Al Caiola” model and decided I want to talk about the Epiphone/Gibson Tone Expressor system that was used in this guitar.

Embracing the idea of an acoustic flattop made with anything other than wood can, understandably, be tricky stuff. There’s a lot of precedent for excellent-sounding acoustics built with alternative materials, though. Carbon-fiber flattops can sound amazing and I’ve been hooked by the sound and playability of Ovation and Adamas instruments many times.
