The PLASMA Coil is used by Jack White on the Raconteurs’ latest album Help Us Stranger, in the subsequent tour and upcoming projects. At its heart is Gamechanger’s innovative High Voltage Distortion technology that expresses audio signal as a series of electrical discharges. Even though they’ve been printing the words: “High Voltage Rock’n’Roll” on t-shirts since 1973, 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.

Special features on this model include -

  • 6 octave up/down effects to add glitchy textures
  • Secondary footswitch to toggle the octave effects on/off in momentary or latching modes
  • Third Man Records themed artwork.

Simplified Signal Chain: Input -> EQ -> Octave/Effect -> Transformer to High Voltage -> Xenon Tube -> Antenna that picks up the electromagnetic vibrations surrounding the Tube -> Output.

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