Roth Scream box

UPDATE! For Sale here:


I finished this today. It's a box with a button. When you push the button, it plays a random David Lee Roth scream. Arduino based, with adafruit's wav shield. Runs on a 9v battery. The red button on the upper right is the power button, the knob on the upper left is volume. The speaker is in the bottom of the case.


I will have similar units to this one available for sale at in the coming months.


For those of you interested in hearing things other than DLR screams (weirdos) the units I make will ship with test sounds on them, and you'll be able to put any sounds you want on it by copying files to an SD card and changing the file names. I will not actually distribute audio recordings of the esteemed Mr. Roth. I don't want the record company coming for my drill press.

    is that the big red button from Sparkfun or Seeedstudio? In either case inside is a 12V LED. A 9V battery is not enough to light it. That's why it seems so faint in the video

    It is not actually the big red button from Sparkfun, but the final product will use that button. The LED in the video currently getting power from the 5v source on the Arduino, which isn't enough. I will do better with the others.

    Hey, this is awesome! I'm making a toy which would be awesome if it had this inside. Would you be able to fill me in on the code you used to randomly play the tracks and the push of a button.

    Does the SPL match human voice range? What speaker did you use?
  • tgtsfkncld 2y

    Yes, it gets as loud as your voice might get. It's just a 2" paper cone speaker I had laying about.
