Gamechanger Plasma Xenon Tube Overdrive Pedal

Gamechanger Audio's Plasma pedal is the first of its kind: a distortion / overdrive pedal that converts sound into high-voltage electrical discharge for buzzing, grinding sounds from out of this world. For any instrumentalist seeking a truly new distortion sound—look no further.

The Plasma operates by converting audio signals into electrical discharges inside a xenon-filled tube and converting the resulting signal back into the audio domain, resulting in a distortion-like effect with characteristically edgy nonlinear harmonic saturation. The "voltage" control impacts the overall intensity of the yielded beam, while the low frequency and high frequency controls add thickness and fizzle to the sound, respectively.

The wet/dry blend control can be cranked for use as a combo distortion/noise gate, making this pedal ideal for staccato passages and other styles that require clear articulation and low noise.

Taking distortion into the truly high-voltage realm, the Plasma's glowing xenon tube not only looks amazing—it sounds like nothing else.

Gamechanger Audio Plasma Pedal, High Voltage Xenon Tube Distortion
Gamechanger Audio Brought their Plasma Pedal by our shop in Burbank CA so we could make a video with it. We ran a drum machine, synth and guitar through it. The Plasma Pedal runs your audio through a high voltage xenon tube, which not only makes for a great sounding distortion, but looks cool as well.
PLASMA PEDAL by Gamechanger Audio
The PLASMA PEDAL is a revolutionary approach within the realm of overdrive and distortion, as it is a new and previously unexplored method of achieving signal clipping. Instead of using 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 with TONS of unique character!
