Controllable Oscillation Allows Musical "Notes" to be Played Through The Tesla Coil
This solid state tesla coil provides a spectacular display of lightning-like discharges for museums, attention-getting advertising, special events, and of course high-voltage high-frequency research. But the most fascinating feature is the ability to play music. By rapidly modulating the output frequency, "notes" can be played by the resonance of the electrical discharge, and when a keyboard is plugged in and passed through the proper controlling circuitry (both of which are included with this tesla coil), the tesla coil becomes a musical instrument that uses lightning bolts to make notes.
|These paper plans contain 85 pages of color photos, engineering drawings, schematics, a parts list, etc., so you can build this coil for less than the Assembled price (but with several days of work required). Includes operating instructions, and FAR1 Faraday Cage plans. For the advanced tesla coil enthusiast who wants to build this amazing coil. All specialized parts are available through us and are fully described on the parts list.|
It is suggested to not operate this solid state tesla coil in densly-populated environments, such as cities, for purposes of radio interference -- or if this device is to be operated in such an environment, it is suggested that a Faraday Cage be built to block electromagnetic emissions (plans on building a Faraday Cage are included with all versions of the solid state tesla coils). Also, operating this tesla coil inside a metal building, such as a steel garage, will help to reduce or eliminate RF emissions.
Unlike the transformers used in standard core-and-coil designs, this advanced device poses a less-lethal electrical hazard -- which is one of the attractive features of solid state tesla coils. (However, anything that plugs into 115VAC wall power poses an electrical hazard, and precautions for working with high voltage items should be observed.)
