While we eagerly await the release of Gamechanger Audio’s Motor Synth — the star of Superbooth 2019 — the Latvian company have started shipping an upgraded version of the Plasma Pedal (see SOS February 2019). The Plasma Coil was created in collaboration with Jack White, formerly of the White Stripes and now recording with the Raconteurs on his own Third Man label. The pedal is based on the same underlying high‑voltage xenon‑tube‑based overdrive technology, but adds guitar octave circuits and an additional latching/momentary effects footswitch. It’s available now for €349 in Europe and the UK$350 in the USA.
