How to Make Cool Star Wars Sound Effects With a Slinky


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!!!!!!

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

    Dollar stores. Great places to find them. Also, this is great.

    $1 tree is the best place to get a metal slinky

     Same problem here in Oz. 

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

    some of the sounds in star wars was tapping on a telephone pole guy wire with a wrench. try it!

    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 can vividly imagine how you came up with this idea. and I laughed.

    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
