San Diego, CA (Jan 22, 2015) (ictw) — Positive Grid and Strandberg Guitars today announce a major update to BIAS, the revolutionary guitar amp designer and modeler for mobile and desktop devices. This new version offers BIAS users a series of .strandberg* amps created by .strandberg* guitar artists, and focuses on giving a stunning tube amp tone made to enhance extended range guitars tone. The new BIAS .strandberg* amps are available for BIAS iPad users first, and will be available for BIAS Desktop users in the following weeks. Strandberg Guitars will host a series of BIAS Strandberg live demo sessions for the product at the NAMM Show this January 22-25.
“Launching our amps as ‘virtual amps’ using BIAS gives us so much more than just awesome tone. Our guitar customers can now reproduce the exact tone that our artists created for that guitar and that they might have heard in a demo or on an album. Not to mention they are free and don’t add an ounce of weight to the rig.” says Ola Strandberg, the founder and CEO of Strandberg Guitars.
