Originally invented by Leon Theremin in the 1920s, the Theremin is one of the oldest electronic instruments around. The Moog Theremin has a five octave pitch range with reliable spacing between notes for sophisticated playability. Moving your hands in the space between the antennas will control the pitch and volume of the sounds produced. The Moog Etherwave Theremin can generate interesting and unique tones at any pitch in its five octave range.

This kit is great fun and a good way to get an inexpensive Theremin. The kit contains an unfinished wood cabinet, ideal for customisation, a pre-built circuit board and everything else you need to build the Theremin. Once built, the Theremin is fitted with an adaptor for attachment to any standard microphone stand (sold separately).

All Moog Etherwaves ship with a DVD containing two video tutorials, Clara Rockmore: the Greatest Theremin Virtuosa and Mastering the Theremin, featuring Lydia Kavina.

Reviews

"Due to its hands-free interface (your body's interference with its electromagnetic field controls the sound), the theremin is famed for both its novelty and its importance in 20th-century music. When I started building this kit, I had little soldering experience, but the straightforward instructions made for a great introduction to the world of circuits. The wooden casing needs a brief sanding and varnish or paint and the mostly constructed circuit board only requires soldering the components that determine tone and waveforms. Bonus: the kit comes with a hilarious performance DVD of Clara Rockmore, one of the first theremin players, and a somber demonstration by her granddaughter."
