tesla coil

click to play sound of tesla coil

this is sound of a tesla coil about 10 feet tall in full arc. this particular coil had an interesting addition in that it could spit flame out the top, when it did, the coil wouldn't arc on the side the flame was coming out -- this is what is causing the changes in frequency you hear here (it's not a audio problem with my cell phone).
