Picture of Desk Bell That Plays Sound Effect

Most people are familiar with the classic desk bell. So when they press the button on top of the bell, they expect to hear a gentle ringing sound. They are not expecting to hear a bird chirping, gun fire or other sound effects. But that is what will happen if they press the button on this desk bell.

In this project, I am going to show you how to modify a desk bell so that it plays sound effects. It makes a fun little prank for your friends and coworkers.
