The BIAS Distortion from Positive Grid is a pedal offering stellar analog-sounding distortion/overdrive utilizing cutting-edge technology that allows you to virtually design your own distortion pedal thanks to the BIAS Pedal mobile and desktop application. Download, create, and share different designs for the ToneCloud, plus Tone Match any real-world distortion pedal.

The BIAS Distortion includes 20 presets. Should you wish to customize or change presets, connect the pedal to your computer via USB, while tablet/smartphone users can opt for a wireless Bluetooth connection. Once connected, simply open the included application and dial in your settings. You can go as deep as you want, by changing to any type of distortion you desire, including tube, germanium, silicon, JFET, MOSFET, and more. Once you have your perfect your sound, send it to one of the pedal's 20 preset slots. If you are not sure where to start, search through the ToneCloud database for your favorite artist or engineer and download their presets. Leave your prized pedal collection at home, while still having access to your favorite tones on the road.

Tone Match
  • Now you can easily match your favorite distortion, overdrive, fuzz, and boost pedals' tone. BIAS Distortion integrates with BIAS Pedal's Tone Match technology – it analyzes and compares your currently selected pedal and the sound of a target tube pedal. It then executes the tonal compensation and enhancements needed to make your pedal's sound accurately match that of the target pedal
Custom Design
  • For the first time, you can easily design and modify your custom distortion pedal at the most detailed level – from the input volume, to the distortion stages and gain control, to pre and post EQ, and much more. You can even change the pedal's virtual guts as you would do with a real distortion pedal: modify your boost pedal's germanium transistor or tweak your fuzz pedal's silicon transistor
Premium Components
  • BIAS Distortion Pedal uses only the finest quality components available. The road-ready metal footswitch, the circuit board, and each knob used are all top of the line. Enrich your pedal tone with the best sound quality analog and digital have to offer
