Introduction: How to Make Cool Star Wars Sound Effects With a Slinky

Hi! I Am Going To Teach You The Secrets Of The Star Wars' Laser Sound Effects!

Step 1: Materals:

You Need,
-A Metal Slinky. (NOT PLASTIC)

-A Foam Cup.
It Can Be Plastic, But Foam Is The Best.

Step 2: Preparation

This Is Easy.

Take The Cup And Insert It In The End Of The Slinky



Step 3: Listen (SHHHH)

Drop The Slinky While You Hold The Cup And You Will Have Star Wars In A Cup!!!!!!

Warnings:
When you drop the slinky it might damage the carpet/floor

Do not put the slinky right by your ear, it can hurt

Hold the slinky so it stays inserted on the cup

 Same problem here in Oz. 

When I eventually find one, it invariably turns out to be plastic!

theres another way to do this hang a slinky hi up from a tack and stretch it down to the floor then whack it with a stick but i broke my slinky trying to get it down...

you can just press one end of the slinky against your ear and let it bounce up and down. but it hurts kinda after a while.

I see image thumbnails across the top, but no images in the steps... why?

they used to make a toy that was essentially a slinky in a plastic tube for this exact thing but i believe the OG sound effect that they used in the movies was made by hitting the tension lines for telephone poles with a metal rod

Or alternatively you can just get an MP3 player that can record audio, find an antenna tower and record the sound of one of the guy wires when you tap it with a crescent wrench. Thats how they originally did it for the movie.
