A revolutionary way of producing distortion by converting signals into a series of high-voltage plasma discharges.
The Plasma Coil is a special version of the Plasma Pedal created by Gamechanger Audio and Third Man Records. The Third Man Records Plasma Coil pedal was used by Jack White on The Raconteurs’ album Help Us Stranger, in the subsequent tour and other projects. At its heart is Gamechanger Audio’s innovative High Voltage Distortion technology that expresses audio signal as a series of electrical discharges. The Plasma Coil takes High Voltage distortion to new heights by adding multiple octave-style circuits, and an additional effects footswitch that can be toggled as latching or momentary.
The Plasma Coil is a revolutionary way of producing distortion by converting your instrument’s signal into a series of high-voltage plasma discharges in a sealed xenon-filled tube. The result is a sharp and sizzling overdrive that’s clear, responsive and, most importantly, fun. This patent-pending technology of high-voltage electric discharge also acts as a natural noise-gating device that creates strong contrasts between staccato notes, as well as eliminating all unwanted noise and pickup hum. The Gamechanger Audio and Third Man Records Plasma Coil’s electric discharge tube produces beautiful visible bolts of lightning that react to the input signal, creating a captivating experience for all players. In essence, it’s like playing a bolt of electricity.
Natural Noise Gate
This feature allows you to achieve extreme contrasts between individual notes by eliminating all of the in-between noises created by the instrument’s pickups or by humming strings.
The Third Man Records Plasma pedal loses the original dry input signal and creates a new signal from fluctuations in the electromagnetic field surrounding the gas-discharge tube. This allows for a very wide range of frequencies. Boost and cut the lows and highs with the dedicated knobs. The EQ can be switched to affect only the wet sound or dry sound, which is especially suitable for bass.
Unique Harmonic Saturation
The Plasma pedal converts your instrument’s signal into a rapid series of electric discharges, which results in a large amount of non-linear harmonic saturation that causes extremely rich and responsive attacks, and delivers screeching sharp overtones and harmonics. These harmonic artifacts—produced as a byproduct of the high voltage discharge—are uncommon in traditional signal amplification, making Plasma Pedal’s distortion unlike anything you’ve heard before.
