The Gamechanger Plasma Coil is a whole new exploration of analog, high voltage distortion with help from Jack White and Third Man Records. Like the Plasma Pedal, this special edition pedal converts your guitar signal into 1000s of volts, and these bursts of energy are discharged into a Xenon gas filled tube. The natural noise gate effect of this brilliant design can be seen, as this lightning in a bottle literally breaks the circuit when you stop playing. The final process involves the energy being transmitted and reformed back into audio signal, where it finds itself with a much wider bandwidth, controlled by the Low and High EQ and unique harmonic distortion controlled by the Voltage knob. Where the Plasma Coil differs, is a mode switch allowing sub and upper harmonics or both in the spirit of Jack White’s unmistakable guitar tone. Whether it’s glitchy, sub-octave riffs or piercing octave up and ring mod effects, the Plasma Coil creates these sounds in a completely analog state. The momentary or latching footswtich on the right expands your creativity with the pedal by allowing octave bursts or rhythm and lead tones with a single step.
