Product Description

“THE PLASMA LITERALLY STRIPS PAINT OFF WALL. WE CHALLENGE YOU TO FIND A SINGLE PEDAL THAT TAKES YOUR SOUND FROM CLEAN TO THIS LEVEL OF INSANITY, WHILST STILL BEING FULLY PLAYABLE BOTH WITH POWER CHORDS, LOW RIFFS AND SOLOS.”

The Gamechanger PLASMA Coil was used by Jack White on the Raconteurs’ latest album Help Us Stranger, in the subsequent tour and will be featured on upcoming projects. At its heart is Gamechanger’s innovative High Voltage Distortion technology that expresses audio signal as a series of electrical discharges. PLASMA Distortion is the first commercial musical device that literally amplifies the audio signal to 3500 volts. 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.

Natural Noise Gate

As soon as you stop playing the electrical discharge within the gas-filled tube is interrupted, and the pedal will not produce any output signal at all. This feature allows you to achieve extreme contrasts between individual notes, by eliminating all of the in-between noises created by the instrument’s pick-ups or by humming strings. Extremely wide EQ The 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 PLASMA 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 brings out screeching sharp overtones and harmonics. These harmonic artifacts, produced as a by-product of the high voltage discharge are uncommon in traditional signal amplification, and therefore PLASMA Pedal’s distortion is unlike anything you have heard before.

FEATURES:

  • High-voltage PLASMA distortion circuit converts the audio signal into a series of electrical discharges at 3.5 kV
  • 2 EQ controls to boost or cut LOW and HIGH frequencies;
  • VOLTAGE knob – adjusts the amount of electrical current sent to the PLASMA tube
  • EFFECT knob allows you to select 1 of 6 different special effect types: Volume Boost; 2 Subharmonic modes (Bitcrush-style Octave Down); 1 Upper Harmonic mode (Octafuzz-style Octave Up); 2 Mixed modes (Upper and Lower harmonics combined)
  • EFFECT footswitch – engages the PLASMA COIL’s special effect circuit
  • Master VOLUME Knob – cuts or boosts the Output Signal level
  • ON/OFF silent footswitch
  • Effect footswitch TOGGLE – configure EFFECTS footswitch as a latching ON/OFF switch or as a Momentary switch

The power supply is not included in the box. Plasma Coil uses a standard 9V DC center-negative pedal power supply of at least 250 mA. The expected life of the xenon tube is 10,000 to 70,000 hours of active playing. The xenon tube is replaceable.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
