Most Powerful Musical Bi-Polar Tesla Coil

My latest Tesla Coil donation was made to the Hands On! Regional Museum in Johnson City, Tennessee: the Most Powerful Musical Bi-Polar Tesla Coil, certified by Guinness World Records in August 2014. The official Guinness World Records certificate presentation will take place on November 3, 2014, at 2 PM. That date is being proclaimed "Tesla Day" by Johnson City.

I am donating additional Tesla Coils to qualifying museums within the USA until 2022 through my Tesla Coil Museum Exhibit Program.

Richard Mathias is the Pied Piper of Tesla Coils; he also donated the powerful Coil that cracks thunderbolts at the Mid-America Science Museum in Hot Springs, Arkansas. This new Coil uses electromagnetic frequencies to play 18 different songs.
