The theremin is one of the oldest electronic instruments in recorded history and one of the only instruments ever created that does not require a physical touch while playing. While the theremin continues to make its way into the public limelight from guest appearances in popular experimental bands, it is mostly known for its enthusiast following that includes Moog’s founder Bob Moog. Now you can join the ranks of the theremin enlightened with the Moog Etherwave Theremin Kit.
Note: This is for a Moog Etherwave Theremin Kit. Assembly required including some soldering.
In technical terms, the theremin is a single oscillator instrument that uses two metal rod antennas to control pitch and volume. Moog has developed and sold more theremins over the years than any other manufacturer in history. Known for their quality, dependability and tone, Moog is the number one choice for theremin instruments and they even make several other products to support or enhance their playback and use.
The Etherwave theremin is an authentic adaptation of the instrument’s original design from inventor Leon Theremin. Now available in a build-it-yourself kit, this DIY project comes with a pre-built circuit board. The package includes a power supply and all the necessary parts to create something truly unique with your own two hands, however, several wiring points will require soldering for completion. A DVD featuring two video tutorials with instructions on how to play the instrument also comes with each kit.
