About Tesla Coils

With a maniacal grin you flip the switch on the arcade machine and bring it to life. Lightning arcs through the room out of the Tesla coil, the hairs on your body vibrate with a static charge, and for just a moment you feel the sheer power of science coursing through every fiber of your body. The Tesla coil is an electrical resonant transformer circuit connected to a capacitor that is used to produce high-voltage, low-current, high-frequency alternating-current electricity. This is a fancy way of saying that with this device you can create a light show that would make Dr. Frankenstein proud. Use one as a teaching tool to demonstrate the sheer power of high-voltage electricity in a controlled environment. For the musically and mechanically gifted, bridge science and art together with a Banshee musical DRSSTC MIDI solid-state Tesla coil which has the ability to adjust the frequency of the electrical arcs, which causes a change in pitch that can be manipulated to play music. This simple transformer circuit has captured the imagination of generations of mad scientists, and browsing the wide selection of plans or ready-to-use models available on eBay is your first step into a world of curiosity and knowledge.
