|This is a simple, one lamp colour organ. It is far less complicated then the Three Channel Colour Organ. It is simply a lamp controlled by an SCR. It can be built in a few minutes, and combined with other circuits to make some pretty neat effects.|

|in this simple light color organ i noticed a major part mistake, you should use the C106B1, not the C106Y because it only has a maximum rated voltage of 30 volts While the C106B1 is rated for 200 volts|
|Is there any way to make it run on 220v?|
|Srry about a stupid question but where should i get the scr. Can i find it from any electrical machines( Tv, some broken PCs, in coffee machine or something like that). Please reply, im stuck on that. Theres not much info on the web.|
|Sorry about a stupid question but where would i get the C106Y SCR|
|What type of mic should be used? Any?? Pre-amp???|
|teh mic connects to the unused side of the matching transformer, as the mic changes the inductive field of the transformer, the secondary coil then changes the bias of the triac...|
|How would sound activation be integrated into this circuit? ex. sound in mic = to patterns in lightbulb|
|The secret to understanding electronics is to understand each part and what role it plays in the circuit. Of each thing you see in a circuit, ask: "What to I expect to put in and what will this device do with it." If you can answer that, the circuit is self-explanitory. If not, educate yourself. Don't expect everything to be handed to you with a ribbon.|
