I would recommend thinking of this like a relaxation oscilator - make a Pi
filtered DC power supply, then a resistor, then another cap which is the
primary cap - this way you can set the break freq by adjusting the resistor
value - basically like the standard neon relaxation osc, but at much higher
voltage and power. Not that I've tried this, of course, just theorizing

I thought about going that way when I get the components to build a TC... I
figured out that it
should be more efficient - just like you and a few others here.

(I hope it comes out okay on your side...)
Now that I re-think about it, another small cap before the chokes would sound
like a fairly good
Have fun and after you tried it, tell me how well it worked compared to AC.
