    I was in Radio Shack the other day, and was looking around. An idea sparked.

    Most people know the old Morleys work off a photo-electric cell being exposed to some degree (controled by a oiece of black cloth) to the internal light bulb.

    I wonder how interesting the effect would be if you replaced the standard bulb with a strobe?

    Well, the hig voltage needed for a strobe could be problematic, and the mount of extra electrical noise would be bad. Your best bet would be to place a tremelo pedal after the effect. It would acieve aboutt he same thing, and be adjustable.
