All that's missing is a Moog/Tesla lowpass filter ! But you'd need a pretty powerful transistor ladder to filter out these high voltage harmonics !!! :shock:
I can just imagine the smell of ozone after such a performance... :mrgreen:
Thanks for the interesting link. :D

I can only imagine the number of high tech electronics nearby that get zapped by things like this.
And if Tesla got his way as far as power distribution, half of us would have already died from cancer.
Still, Tesla was quite the genius.

At a live Tesla Coil performance at Sweetwater, the smell almost got a
lot worse when a streaker ran past the coils during the performance. :shock:

One other thing, you certainly don't need a PA system to have this thing heard !! :shock:
But you can only have one waveform: pulse. But what a pulse !! :shock:

Finally, that streak fool (no relation whatsoever with Synthfool :mrgreen: ) must have had all the hairs on his body upright after passing this close to those towers. No to mention the potential dangers of getting zapped in the wrong place ! Impotence guaranteed after that. :roll:

I've always wanted to use a Tesla coil as an amp. Don't remember the site, but there's this guy who builds and sells singing MIDI compatible Tesla coils. They are expensive, though. 8)

I hope they meet their goal.
The area is accessible by many and the man is an inspiration to young scientists to come.
It's unfortunate that he's mostly noted as some madman who sat amongst lightning bolts.
While that's dramatic, his many other inventions and theories were much more important and practical.
Thanks for the link, Rob.
