You've Always Wanted to Play the Theremin!

Blast into space with the Moog Standard Etherwave theremin -- Moog Music's take on one of the world's most unique-sounding, oldest electronic instruments. An authentic adaptation of inventor Leon Theremin's original design, the Moog Standard Etherwave is played without touching it. In fact, the Moog Etherwave retains almost all characteristics of the original devices first manufactured in the 1920s. A five-octave pitch range and intelligent, reliable note spacing provides sophisticated control and playability, while the Etherwave's beautiful furniture-grade hardwood ash cabinet construction looks supremely elegant both on-stage and in-studio.

Moog-quality Construction

For decades, the Moog name has maintained an extremely high profile in synthesis -- both in design and functionality. The Etherwave continues Moog's time-honored tradition of supreme, luxury-level manufacturing while retaining a price point affordable for even startup musicians. Although the theremin is a difficult instrument to truly master, this unit makes things as easy to dig into as possible. Since no contact is made to produce sound, its response field must carry carefully engineered accuracy -- and nickel plating on the 3/8-inch brass tube antennas give the Standard Etherwave a concise, strong signal that many theremins simply don't have.

Control at Your Fingertips

Four rotary potentiometers provide complete control of your output (pitch, volume, waveform and brightness response) over the Etherwave's 5 full available octaves (3 above and 2 below middle C). The power rocker switch turns the special AC adapter receptacle power (either 110 or 220 volt) on and off in a breeze. The Etherwave also comes fitted with an adapter for mounting to any standard microphone stand. Like electric guitars and keyboards, the Etherwave must be amplified by its standard 1/4 inch phone jack, providing perfect line level output to your amplifier (the Etherwave Theremin Amp is recommended, but most keyboard amplifiers or PA systems are sufficient -- but always check power ratings first).

Learn Along With DVD Video Tutorials From Theremin Masters

Although the theremin can seem daunting to a first-time user, the Etherwave ships with two DVD video tutorials from legendary masters Lydia Kavina and Clara Rockmore. These world-class musicians help make it easier for any novice while improving seasoned players with advanced tips and tricks.

Features:

- Moog theremin based on Leon Thermin's original design
- Nickel-plated 3/8-inch brass tube antennas with threaded connectors, detachable for transport
- Furniture-grade hardwood ash cabinet
- Power rocker on/off switch for included AC adapter (110 or 220 volt)
- Standard line level 1/4 output jack
- 5-octave pitch range
- Four rotary controls for pitch, volume, waveform and brightness control

Whether you want to make sci-fi sound effects, or uniquely expressive melodies, the Moog Standard Etherwave theremin is a beautiful device on par with the designs of yesteryear and the technology of today.

Product Description

The theremin is one of the oldest electronic instruments -- and the first that you play without touching. Moving your hands in the space around its antennas controls pitch and volume. Like the Ethervox, the Etherwave is an authentic adaptation of inventor Leon Theremin's original design.

The Etherwave is a quality theremin with a design that retains many characteristics of the original theremins, including a five-octave pitch range and reliable spacing between notes for sophisticated playability. Antennas are nickel-plated 3/8-inch brass tube and cabinets are furniture-grade hardwood, finished black. The Etherwave is fitted with an adapter for mounting on a standard microphone stand and is designed for use with a musical instrument amplifier such as the Moog TB15.

The Etherwave is shipped with a DVD that contains two Video tutorials: Mastering the Theremin with Lydia Kavina, and Clara Rockmore, the World's Greatest Theremin Virtuosa.

"all set too buy a theremin from Zzsounds"
Overall: I was all set to buy the thermin, right up until the time Zzsounds asked for my SSN Social security number which most thieves would like for identity theft. If my credit card isn't enough Zzsounds can keep their product, I don't want it. If the rest of you folks trust Zzsounds, your nuts, more power too you! I value what little I have, and I hope you folks keep your SS number away from everybody unless you know who to trust and not to trust. Until Zzsounds trusts our credit card and our banks, by removing the demand for SS number, I wish you the best !
