making your euc tick


Recommended Posts

The sound I'm trying to recreate is:

Baseball Card in Rear Bicycle Spokes held on by a clothes pin -- sound effect.

Dirt bike / motorcycle sound effect.

Attempt #1:

Laminated card stock. Which has since fallen away to leave just plastic.

I slipped the laminate into the crevice and hot glued it. 

 

Attempt #2:

I tried using a soda can but cannot get it to stay put against the case lip.

I just had an idea to put the can INSIDE the case on top dead center.

tire max load 55 kg ??

I'm pretty sure that is what the Kenda tire on my kingsong ks16 says as well. They might have been produced to be used in vehicles with 2 or more tires on, where the body force would have been distributed over each wheel. It works anyway apparently, but perhaps the tire will wear out quicker.

Um, why not just get an MP3 file of a card on a bike wheel, put it on your cell phone, then loop it via Bluetooth, coming out the wheel's speakers? That way you could broadcast all sorts of sick sounds.

If my euc had speakers, this would be the logical choice.

Why do you want it to tick anyway? 

Yeah, that's not a good sound, even the card in the spokes sounds better than a ticking sound.  A ticking sound is the sound of time drifting away, and nobody likes that unless they are in school or somewhere and can't wait to get away. Same with birds, every spring they be chirping away, Aww no,  another year gone past?

Hey look, it's me!

That actually doesn't sound too far off from the bicycle+baseball card version. It's a bit high pitched is all.
