FYI PLAYERS SPECIAL delivery update



  • Just got an email with the update that players special orders will begin shipping in April and May. Still seems optimistic.

    The email included the voucher for Bias FX 2 Standard for free.

    Power supporters are getting their now man. I think you will get yours next month like they said.

    This info alone as an incentive a couple of months ago could have likely saved PG numerous order cancellations, but as usual they dropped the ball due to lack of communication until the last min. A hunch says the cancellations were piling up due to lengthy delays and they were forced to offer the software incentive in an attempt to stop the bleeding?



  • @tunesntools50 What does the Bias FX2 Standard do? I ordered my Spark in early December and they keep delaying the delivery. I really want the amp!!



  • My problem with the incentive they are giving is.. if i download FX2 do i then need to purchase Amp2. will it work the same if i only have Bias Amp Pro. i've been happy with FX Pro and Amp Pro. i have noticed on the forum that some people have been having issues with FX2..plus its the standard version and id want to later buy the Pro version which is a clever way of getting more cash back for the gift they're giving .is it worth getting would be the question .



  • @iwhicks Not familiar with the Bias FX2 software, and likely wont be. I Cancelled my order 2 weeks ago after little to no communications in any manner from them and continual delays on shipping to people who had ordered there's back in late October/early Nov. Thankfully, the quickest thing PG can do these days is issue a prompt refund.



  • @tunesntools50 check your spam. I found my email there. I bet their ip got put on some blacklist because somebody reported them for fraud.



  • I received a similar email as a "last chance special" purchaser. That one stated the first two waves of orders (Super Early and Early Bird) were shipped and they had moved on to the Players Special. The estimate for those of us in the Last Chance Special group is that they will ship in May.

    There was no offer for the BiasFX software for free in the Last Chance level update, at least if there was it was hidden. Has anyone who is a Last Chance level purchaser contacted support and asked if we are eligible for the free software?

    Obviously, I've been not been waiting as long as some of the earliest supporters, and if things keep ramping up and I actually get my amp in May I'll be pretty happy, overall. But I wouldn't turn down free software to play with...



  • @corvusgrp Nope, the e-mail wasn't in my spam box either. Doesn't matter at this point, I've moved on from the Spark and purchased a Yamaha THR-10 wireless. The concept of the Spark was nice, but i don't feel it's ready for prime time yet with the buggy software app and need for possible firmware updates already. Maybe i'll give it another look in a year or so?



  • @tunesntools50 I had the THR, sounded great but just found it to be over priced. It did not sound like 400 pounds to me so i returned it, but the portability was great. I got myself a used thr5 for 70 pounds to hold me over till the spark arrives. My THR5 eats battery life however so i ordered a power supply for it.



  • @iwhicks bias fx2 is a vst or standalone amp and fx simulator for your pc. And instead of being a practice amp, it can be used for full on recording.
