Product Description

The theremin is one of the oldest electronic instruments, and the only one known 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 Ether wave 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.

I built a kit theremin (from Paia) that has excellent sound, but the distance between the notes tended to wander as the unit heated up. The Moog unit is much more stable and playable musically (as opposed to spacey "wooo-wooo" sounds). Good quality, with a good DVD of instruction and inspiration. If you think about the electronics in this, the price is rather high, but the quality is good and the quantities are low.

There is nothing quite like the sound a Theremin - haunting with hesitant notes that glide together to create ethereal whistles. Creepy, joyful, downright jazzy sounds are all possible - within a week I was playing 'The Entertainer' rather more accurately than I expected.

Others in the family enjoy this moog instrument, but find it hard to play, as there is no guide to where to wave your hands - the positions of the notes change with the setting of the pitch control, and the length of time the instrument has been turned on, so it changes . . .

I presume it will take some time to become proficient on this exciting contraption, but I don't care - making sounds that wave out of key, change key, fail dismally and sound horrible are all great fun. The problem I am having is thinking of things to play, not playing things; I really don't mind if it sounds strange - that is the nature of the beast - I am an older musician, having played many instruments for the last fifty years, so my pitch is very near perfect - allowing me to make confidence gaining observations on YouTube watching other Theremin players do marvels on the instrument - the confidence I gained was because almost all of them lost the key on occasion. I therefore do not mind when I do it - I have only had it a week, and make fewer misses every day.

One thing I have found with the instrument, is that it works more precisely when attached to a microphone stand, well away from anything else - indeed, on a table larger than itself, it makes no noise whatsoever. The dog was amused by the screeching noises made when it ran past..

Anyone who wants a Theremin, but does not want to make a kit, could do a lot worse than trying this instrument out - it is well priced, well made and great fun.

The theremin looks great, sounds awesome, has a relatively flat learning curve, and is totally unique. It arrived almost immediately, took less than two minutes to assemble, and everyone who sees it wants to play it. The product quality looks very high (the wood box that holds the circuitry is very nicely finished), and the controls are simple and sturdy. The vendor is quick to ship and has great customer service. My only regret is not having discovered this sooner.

This is a good theremin. Rugged, has a fair tone, and ability to adjust tone with waveform and brightness knobs.

The colour of the stain looks nice. However...

When you get tired of being limited to just 5 or 6 octaves, and the so, so, tone, you really should go ahead and get the ESPE01 theremin enhancement module. The module takes the theremin to a full 8 octaves, and enhances the quality of tone. Have a look at a youtube video I made called, Exploring the ESPE01 Theremin Enhancement Module to hear the difference it makes.

Now, if only Moog Music would just get rid of the plumbing fistures that hold the antennas on the box, and use a method that looks nicer for classical performances. ;)

I did notice the pitch rod was wobbly after being finger tightened, but if you cram a bit of paper in the pitch rod's hole, it'll go on tightly. You can also move the compression ring up a bit on the rod to form a proper fit. You can also use a wrench to tighten it more.

The theremin came with the DVD which ffeatured Lydia Kavina, and Clara Rockmore, as well as a plastic tool which is needed for making internal adjustments of the inductance coils. NEVER use a metal tool, or you will damage graphite lugs inside the inductance coils (sugar cube sized metal cans at L5 L6, and L11).

Over time, you'll realize it's easier to tune if you drill holes in the lid over the inductance coils, rather than having to tune, replace lid, tune, and so on which can take hours without the access holes. You can get plastic hole covers that fit nicely into the holes and come in different colours.

It also helps to install a power LED, and mute switch.

I have been having so much fun learning how to play my Theremin!!! Its a great sound, the video teaches so much, but i found some even better videos to learn how to play on You Tube. I love it so much that i made a custom speaker for it! Moog is always a great company, and this Theremin goes to prove it! Definitely worth the price.

Just bought this for our 16 yr son on his birthday, and he loves it. He is very musically talented and was able to quickly make it give up more sound than I thought. This thing is no bongo drum and needs a bit of practice to make the ethereal tones we know it will issue, but the foundation is there. The construction is nice and we are pleasantly shocked to see it is made in N. Carolina. It should be noted that a stand is required to make this work, setting it on a table won't do it. On the bright side, the inexpensive stand elsewhere offered by Amzn works quite nicely. Spend ~$20 or less and it will be fine. He plays it though his first amp ever acquired, a Fender 150 that comes with a Squire package, and it works fine until we know better.

We gave it to him yesterday and he is "playing" it now as I type, and that is the best recommendation I can offer. We are pleased with the instrument, and the accompanying materials too. Nice job by Moog.
