A guitar and amp? Pffft! Real men play their electric guitar using Tesla coils. Musician and engineer Nabzim decided to attach his electric guitar to a handmade solid state Tesla coil using an audio interrupter schematic.
I have no idea what that means, but it’s very cool. Nabzim was able to precisely control the sound of the coil by playing the instrument. In other words, all of the sound you hear is produced only by the sparks created by the Tesla coil, and not by the guitar being amplified.
The second video shows some larger sparks. Now I want to see him play on a huge Tesla coil in concert, with gigantic sparks flying everywhere.
