Know your theremin inside and out with this build-it-yourself kit from Moog. Master the instrument with a DVD of two instructional tutorials.

Authentic theremin sound, fun to play. This is the instrument that so intrigued Bob Moog that he has spent the last 50 years building the most influential electronic musical instruments in the world. This is the build-it-yourself kit (unfinished wood cabinet, pre-built circuit board, several wiring points require soldering). All Etherwaves ship with two video tutorials on one DVD: Clara Rockmore: the Greatest Theremin Virtuosa, and Mastering the Theremin, featuring Lydia Kavina.


- Antennas: authentic shape, nickel-plated 3/8 in. brass
- Cabinet: furniture-grade hardwoods and Birch plywood; mounts on standard mic stand
- Power: durable rocker switch, 110v wall transformer power supply
- Audio Out: 1/4 in. phone jack on front panel, direct audio into your own amp/speaker
- Timbre: 2 continuous rotary controls for waveform and brightness
- Pitch Range: 5 octaves (3 above and 2 below middle C)

***Just like electric guitars and many keyboards, theremins require amplification. While the Etherwave Theremin Amp is recommended, most keyboard amplifiers or PA systems should also be sufficient.

Superb!! For the price, this is simply the best theremin available.
I wish it had a little more control over the timbre and a way to select different base waveforms. But for a traditional theremin, it already features more control than most.
Rock solid construction. The circuit was designed by the man who invented the synthesizer - what else could you ask for?
