Customize your cabinet, work with your hands, and save a few bucks.
The build-it-yourself kit has an unfinished wood cabinet and pre-built circuit board. Several wiring points require soldering and a 110 volt power supply is included (for use in U.S. or Canada).
All Etherwaves ship with two videotapes: Clara Rockmore: The Greatest Theremin Virtuosa, and Mastering the Theremin, featuring Lydia Kavina.
What is a Theremin?
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 Kit
If you can read a diagram, solder, and use basic hand tools, you should be able to build this theremin in an evening or two. The kit includes a pre-assembled and tested circuit board, an unfinished hardwood cabinet, nickel-plated brass antennas, and detailed assembly, test, and customization instructions.
