Description

Cricket Effect for Hire

This natty little effect is achieved with the use of a small wooden chamber and three ball bearings. The wooden chamber has three holes in which sit three steel ball bearings. The ball bearings are stopped from falling out by a wooden bar coated with a metal sleeve. If one flicks their wrist, the ball bearings fall forward onto the metal but not at exactly the same time, thus producing a "trriccckittt" effect. This is an extremely clever invention and a great representation of a misunderstood insect.
