Sextant Tesla Coil (high fidelity sound!) Fundraiser

Post by torrey.smith » Tue Jul 10, 2018 4:54 pm

Sextant is excited to be working on a new kind of sound with our big coil!

The basic idea is using a new ultra high speed solid state switching circuit to be able to overlay lots of tiny sparks in an attempt to construct a complex sound with a sweetness to it.

So, like, human voice and stuff :mrgreen:

This stands in contrast to the current single-tone, whip-crack harshness that we get from frequency-modulated 20 ft sparks.

We're doing a fundraiser that we've tried to target to a wide audience, hopefully beyond the burnersphere, but we are glad to have a link here as well.

Sextant is extremely honored to be placed at 7:15 & Esplanade this year. Come play with us!

It's hard to even imagine how those tesla coils could get any better... but dammit you've managed to figure out the science of awesome!
