The Plus Pedal is a truly unique solution for the modern singer songwriter. Taking the basic concept of a piano sustain pedal, but adding more control and customisation. This pedal is a revelation. It really moves the goal posts of what you can do.
Essentially it allows you to sustain select notes and chords to create a pad as you play. By pressing and holding the pedal down it will sustain the tail end of the note in a soft pad effect. Then you continue to play over the top – it will only sustain the notes that were playing when you pressed it.
Already this pedal is ‘smarter’ than a mechanical sustain pedal on a piano. But they have stopped there. You get four controls to really tweak your sustain:
Blend allows you to adjust the amount of wet signal in the mix. In other words, how loud do you want the sustained notes to be in comparison to the rest of your playing?
Tail controls how long the note continues to sustain once you release the pedal. You can set it to cut off straight away, giving you snappy control, or let it ring out and combine new layers on top of each other for a richer sonic wall of sound.
Rise controls the attack of the wet signal. How quickly to you want the wet signal to fade in?
Sustain allows you to change the length of the sustain from that of a naturally ringing string’s sustain to an infinite sustain (as long as you’re holding the pedal).
Thanks to an effects loop, with a dry / wet toggle switch you can play with other effects and change how they work with the wet or dry channels separately. And with 2 outputs you can send you dry signal out to a separate amp to the wet signal and really control the effect you’re creating on stage!
The optional extra ‘Wet’ pedal will also allow you to toggle the dry signal off completely and use your guitar is a string or organ-like pad. The options are endless for what you can create with the Plus Pedal.

Here's what Gamechanger say about the Wet Pedal
The special WET footswitch goes into the DRY output of the PLUS PEDAL.
When the WET ONLY mode is engaged, the main output will have no DRY output, which allows you to create some very interesting sound effects and even transform your guitar into something like an organ or a cello or a synth pad.
The Footswitch also has an output jack, therefore if you still wish to use a second amp with the DRY output – you can plug a basic jack – jack cable into the Footswitch.
