Echo / Reverb Pet Collar For Halloween

Dogs and cats barks, meows, growls made scary.

Collar has a contact mic, amp and speaker with an echo / reverb circuit built in so any vocalization they make is repeated as fading echos.

Not sure how scary it would be but would certainly create a surrealistic dreamlike effect.

Could also add phaser, distortion, basically a pet amp.

As you can see, dogs love barking at their own echo. https://www.youtube...watch?v=vojBAHD2BJY

The echo's very quiet in the video but you can see the dog's obsessed. https://www.youtube...watch?v=OCqVa8rp0QY
You'd definately need a mute button on the dog version. [doctorremulac3, Oct 26 2022]

       [-] There are "aversion training" products on the market that echo a dog's bark to them to discourage or confuse them, to get them to bark less. So even if people think it's cool and fun, the dog might not.   

       Domestic cats, I dunno. I thought the only sound they cared about was a can opener.

       Put an octave box on that sucker. Cat meow or dog bark two octaves lower? NOW we're talking spooky!   

       Occurs to me you don't need to have the amp in the collar, can just have a wifi contact mic transmitting to your sound system. Less issues with feedback too.

       This is great. I would leave it on all year. If I had one of those little squeeky-type dogs that have a wimpy voice, People would think it was a badass pitbull. YEEEEssss
