This beautiful miniBrute DRSSTC was one of the first customers to build the kit and produces beautiful output arcs up to 48" in length.

Just wanted to say thanks for a great product (microBrute DRSSTC). Still need to take up the slack a bit in my primary but getting pretty impressure results."

"I've really been enjoying the Microbrute DRSSTC . I have a pile of parts and boards for DRSSTC construction, but this is the first one that I actually finished. This relatively simple single board made the process easy to get done. The size is more practical for indoor use, and the results are impressive. The holy grail was finding the best compromise between size and performance. That makes the Microbrute perfect for my situation."
Here are some videos of Bill's DRSSTC in action. Note that Bill did modify the top load a bit as well as modify the internal timing of the Handheld Modulator to give it a slower rep rate pulse.
I just want to say that what you are doing for the Tesla Community is unbelievable! You make it so easy for anyone to build the latest and greatest that modern day Tesla coiling has to offer. Seems anyone these days that has a decent Tesla coil design is ultra secretive and forget about finding any information on the newest audio modulated Tesla coils. Everyone posts videos and photos of their creations, but never any details. And even the ones that do post schematics, you're still left to figure the schematics out, seek out and procure all the parts, make the circuit cards, and then figure out how to put it all together. The kits you offer do all that for you and thats whats so great about them! Good job - Keep up the great work eastern voltage research. I will definitely be a repeat customer!

Bill A. sends us this great new video of his microBrute DRSSTC in action.
Hello Dan and your crew. I have had the Micro Brute for some time now and I find it very dependable and meets and actually exceeds expectations. I have run it for long periods (hours) at a high duty cycle without a fan and it has never failed. The heat sink just barely gets warm and I can easily get 18-22 inch arcs out of it. It angers the family when it is on but I am absolutely amazed by it. They have no idea what they are missing in the world of physics. I also find that the ozone and ionized air keeps me well as I have not been sick since I bought the Micro Brute. I just want to complement you Dan and your crew for the excellent product. I have bought many kits in the past but yours beats them all hands down. Thank You Dan and your Crew for the hours of fun you have provided me and I WILL be a returning customer. I see some really cool upcoming products you have planned and I can't wait. Keep up the good work guys and one more thing. If you have problems with people buying the kits and having trouble putting them together send them my way via email and I will walk them through the process with HD pictures and detailed explanations. Thank You Dan and Your Crew from a very satisfied customer

I have finished the construction of the micro brute kit and will send a video soon.
The experience has been spectacular. I like to increase the power for this coil is possible.The voltage in Spain (Barcelona) has not been a disadvantage, and with a transformer from 220V to 125V it has worked perfectly.

Great kit (Class-E Audio Modulated Tesla Coil High Power Kit) . I got mine tuned and working today.
I'm using an old iPod saddled in one of those Altec Lansing speaker thingies. It works well.
Anyway, it went together very well and is one of the coolest things I have ever built!

Fantastic! My son is amazed at his SSTC 1.0 Kit!

I've been having a blast playing with my new "toy." (Class-E Audio Modulated Tesla Coil) My 8 year old thinks it's cool too. :) I can't believe how this thing lights up a CFL! My wife was somewhat amazed and baffled over this, she bought the kit for me for my birthday. I guess you have to have a good understanding of how a speaker moves sound thru the air before you can really grasp how a plasma could move the air as well...
Also, I have to mention, you were very good at promptly responding to my emails with good useful information. Good tech support is sometimes hard to find now days.
