I made this audio oscillator on a breadboard

In this video, I demonstrate how to make an audio oscillator on a breadboard. This is a RC phase shift oscillator which uses positive feedback to generate a sine wave. The oscillator is very simple, and uses only a single NPN-transistor (BC547), since the oscillator is based on a common emitter amplifier. I also demonstrate that the DC-blocking output capacitance effects the resonant frequency.
