In Austin, Texas, in 2005, ArcAttack began its journey to develop the Singing Tesla Coil with the help of Steve Ward, a veteran Tesla Coiler from Illinois. The product developed quickly, and after several iterations the instrument reached its present form. Two custom-engineered hand-built Tesla Coils throw out electrical arcs up to twelve feet long, each one acting as an instrument with a sound reminiscent of the early days of the synthesizer. A robotic drum set accompanies the spectacle, its high power LED’s flashing bright colors with the stroke of each mechanically actuated stick.

Featured on America’s Got Talent, this show is part rock concert and part science experiment, with the creators unveiling the science behind the spectacle. Combining their love of music with science, the group invites the audience to explore concepts such as electricity, voltage and current, magnetism, robotics, and lightning through a show that’s both entertaining and interactive.

The audience is engaged from start to finish as the group’s trusty, completely automated robot drummer King Beat introduces the audience to the show. The show features their signature Tesla coils as members of the group literally walk through lightning, then invite members of the audience on stage to take part in a special faraday cage dance off!
