Q: Where can I purchase a BIAS MINI Guitar or Bass amplifier?
To find a dealer near you, please visit our dealer locator at: https://www.positivegrid.com/dealer/
BIAS MINI Guitar and BIAS MINI Bass are essentially the same hardware, only BIAS MINI Bass has a combo speaker output jack that can use both speakON and 1/4” speaker cables, and BIAS MINI Guitar has a traditional 1/4” speaker output jack. MINI Guitar is silver and comes pre-loaded with 16 custom guitar amplifiers, and MINI Bass is black and comes pre-loaded with 16 custom bass amps, but both amps can use either guitar or bass patches.
We are not able to transfer the license from a previous owner to you due to our software license policy, so if the license was already claimed by the previous owner you will need to purchase BIAS AMP 2 Professional to connect MINI with your desktop computer. Alternatively, you can download the mobile version of BIAS AMP 2 for free when it becomes available (in mid May 2018), and use your iPad or iPhone to control BIAS MINI.
BIAS MINI amps provide 300 Watts RMS @ 4 ohms and 150 Watts RMS @ 8 ohms. Please use caution when turning the volume all the way up to avoid the risk of damaging your hearing. Also, please DO NOT connect the unit to a powered speaker or grounded equipment such as effect units (pedals), DI boxes and audio interfaces or mixers, as that could cause serious damage to MINI.
Since BIAS MINI uses a Class D power amplifier, you can technically connect it to any single 4, 8 or 16 ohm speaker cabinet. Unlike tube amplifiers, you do not need to connect a speaker cabinet to BIAS MINI in order to run direct or use the headphone output.
The Effect Loop is designed for users who want to put their effect units AFTER the preamp. To use the Effect Loop on the rear of your BIAS MINI, please follow these steps:
- Use two mono TS 1/4” cables to connect to your external equipment.
- Connect MINI’s Send to the input jack of effect unit.
- Connect the output jack of the effects unit to BIAS MINI’s Return jack
4 if you need to adjust the level of the Effects Send for some reason, you can do that using the Master Output encoder. Refer to the manual for more information.
