actual high voltage rock n roll

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!

what makes plasma pedal so great?


Natural noise-gate

By maxing out the BLEND knob you can achieve a fully wet signal, produced only by the gas-discharge tube. This means that 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 intsrument’s pick-ups or by humming strings.
Thanks to this, PLASMA PEDAL is extremely well suited for playing heavy riffs or sharp staccato solos. Really – there’s nothing like it!

unique harmonic saturation

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 brings out screechingly sharp overtones and harmonics.
These harmonic artifacts, produced as a byproduct of the high-voltage discharge are uncommon in traditional signal amplification, and therefore PLASMA Pedal’s distortion is unlike anything you have heard before.


PLASMA PEDAL is designed primarily for guitarists, but it is also an awesome distortion tool for all sorts of electronic beats, synths and live instrument samples.
As you max up the VOLTAGE knob, you can add satisfying amounts of electrical buzz to any sound…

Here’s a quick taste:

And last but not least...

PLASMA PEDAL is just plain FUN!

Here at Gamechanger Audio we are all adults (technically…), but when we play music through a beautiful blue “bolt of lightning”, we can definitely feel those endorphins flowing.

It’s just that simple 🙂

Pre-order round starting SOON

Precisely one year ago, in January 2017, we presented our concept for the PLUS Pedal at the Winter NAMM show in Anaheim. Thanks to the incredible support from our early pre-order clients we were able to finance the production of our first thousand pedals and take PLUS Pedal from just an idea to a real product that is already in shop windows in many places around the world. Also, we were able to more than double our team and finance the development our new product – the PLASMA Pedal.

So here we go again – setting up our booth at the Winter NAMM show, a completely new and somewhat odd (in a good way) pedal that the world has never seen before!
After many many sleepless nights and countless hours of preparation and we are ready to launch another Gamechanger, and we invite you to be a part of it!

We hope you take this trip with us and we promise you that we’ve only become smarter, faster in execution, more reliable and yet every bit as greatful for this awesome adventure!

Don’t be a stranger!
