Choose from one of Positive Grid’s artistic selections or design something original. Add a band logo; feature original artwork; or showcase a favorite photo*. Each grille is carefully prepared by hand and precisely printed in vivid color by state-of-the-art printers using durable materials that preserve sonic transparency.

Whether it’s for on-the-go music listening, inspired guitar practice at home, or for memorable, personalized gift-giving, Spark 40 and Spark MINI can be uniquely designed to fit any style or look. No other amp offers this level of customization.
