PLASMA Pedal was first unveiled in January at this year’s Winter NAMM show where it took the press by storm and received wide critical acclaim from the industry’s leading gear experts and countless professional musicians.
“This is one of the most fun guitar pedals I’ve ever played” – Andy Martin (Reverb.com / ex ProGuitarshop.com)
“Yet again you have managed to come up with the talk of the show! It’s the coolest freakin’ pedal we’ve ever seen.” – Lee Anderton (Anderton’s TV)
“There are things that can be done with this pedal that I’ve not seen anybody else doing.” Darryl Jones / Rolling Stones
By creating PLASMA Pedal, Gamechanger Audio are marking a new chapter in the evolution of overdrive, distortion and fuzz effects.
Instead of using traditional LED circuits, transistors or vacuum tubes to produce overdrive, the PLASMA Pedal transforms your instrument’s live signal into a series of continuous high-voltage discharges within a xenon-filled tube. In essence – you are playing a bolt of electricity, and the electrical discharges produced by your instrument are instantly converted back into an analog audio signal, producing a quick, responsive, and extremely heavy distortion.
The first PLASMA Pedal batches are scheduled to ship in August 2018. This will be the second crowdfunding campaign created by Gamechanger Audio, following the success of PLUS Pedal which went up for pre-orders in January 2017 and was shipped to early backers within 7 months.
About the creators:
Gamechanger | Audio was founded by four friends committed to exploring the uncharted territories of music electronics and creating devices that provide real value while stretching the imagination of both musicians and engineers.
“There has never been a pedal like this on the market” say the pedal’s creators, “and we are certain that PLASMA Pedal will inspire players, producers and engineers to reimagine what can be done with distortion.”
Gamechanger Audio have already received critical and public acclaim with their debut product PLUS Pedal – a piano-style sustain pedal already used by musicians such as Kurt Rosenwinkel, Jon Carin and Jonathan Wilson (Roger Waters band), Josh Klinghoffer (RHCP), and many more.
