I've been reading into these and also listening to some Tesla coil music (which is really damn cool) and I was wondering if anyone here had tried to make one or had come across these as musical instruments?

Anyone here actually built one?


Here's some music done on Tesla coil: Popcorn by The Masters of Lightning

Thats actually pretty cool, sort of like that 8 bit music. But MUCH better.
Was lacking a decent sig. Still is.

Make sure you lick it. The saliva improves the conductivity of the coils and drastically improves the tone, but it only works if it's on.

Can someone post a pic of somebody getting shocked by a tesla coil? That'd really ruin the thread.

Naw man, that's not cool. That would be a real person, with feelings, dreams, hopes, aspirations and a family, man. That's just sick.


Oh, wait, unless that person is a convicted criminal. Then it's coo.

For me, the 60's ended that day in 1978...

Willies. Fuck the lick and fuck you too.

Edit: Actually, if you could post C&C red alert photos involving tesla coils, that'd be cool too.

He's in a Faraday cage, he really couldn't be much safer without leaving the coil swithced off, which would negate the need for the cage.

That was kind of the point of the post though...

I wanted to make one for my chemistry project, but the school officials wouldn't let me. They shouldn't be too hard to make, and I found some good plans. I may do it this summer. Be careful if you do try to make them, and heed all of the warnings because they are very dangerous.
I'm not a Bible-thumper anymore. Realized I had a brain in '09.

I like guitars, running, and math.

Shit.

In fairness, you'd have to get in a Fassa thread before the OP 90% of the time to have a decent chance of "Inb4 Rush" succeeding.

Edit: Inb4 "Meanie!" "*something about free speech*" "" etc.

You gotta know what you're doing if you're building it wothout a kit. Even with a kit, you gotta know what you're doing and what they're talking about.

Probably the most important step is tuning the frequencies, I think they have to be seperated 180 degrees.

Tesla coils are awesome, I mean... they turn the enemy infantry into ash with like one zap.

Deadly. Pretty useful for keeping those tanks at bay, too.

That song was terrible, though.

Wat. How does it work?

well, to put it in layman's terms, all it is is a discharge of electrons through the air whcih creates vibrations that varies depending on the amount of electricity.
