NEW GUIDE: John Park’s Happy Chewbacca Mask @StarWars

 

HappyChewbaccaMask

John Park’s Happy Chewbacca Mask is a new guide in the learning system:

Chewbacca is a lovable Wookie with a distinctive voice, but here’s how to give him a voice transplant and add your own fun sounds to this talking mask.

This guide will show you how to swap out the original sound board for an Audio FX Sound Board loaded up with lots of your favorite sounds. You’ll need a specific mask to follow along exactly, but these principals can be applied to nearly any toy designed to trigger a sound effect. Or, add a speaker and switch to the mix to give a voice to any prop or costume.

You’ll reuse the mask’s existing jaw switches and speaker, while upgrading it with a WAV/OGG audio FX board, amplifier, rechargeable battery system, and a power switch.

You’ll keep the USB port of the audio FX board accessibly for recharging the battery and updating the sound files whenever you like. You can even use the selector switch to choose from different banks of sounds.
