Epilator shows its dark side by playing The Imperial March. I also show how I tuned the device.
Epilator is not the easiest instrument to play. While stepper motors make it possible to keep floppy drives and credit card machines accurately in tune, this epilator uses a DC motor to rotate the head.
Basically, this means that you have to find the right voltage for each note by hand. In addition to that, the motor warms up during the song, which means that the epilator goes out of tune very easily if you don't take the heating into account.
Though I spent hours finding the right tunings, I know that some of the notes are still out of tune a bit. But I still think the melody is recognizable.
