    That's cool, but cool doesn't mean it will sound good. Waiting for guinea pigs...

    So . . . it's a distortion pedal with a flashier clipping section?

    The sound didn't do much for me, but it's sure lovely. Nikola Tesla would be proud.

    that's pretty cool. not sure i'd appreciate the sound as much if i thought it were a normal distortion though.

    Is it a flux capacitor to travel through the time?

    I think I'll wait for the antimatter version to come out. I want nothing less than to annihilate my audience.

    A Bose-Einstein Condensate will only form a few degrees above absolute zero.
    So I'm guessing it's dosen't work that way...

    The Plus pedal sitting next to it looked way more useful to me.

    "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!"

    Say wut? Surely sounds a gimmick to me. :facepalm:dunno
