Create music from
the ether; eerie sci-fi, psychedelic, ambient, rock, classical etc.. by
moving one hand towards or away from the pitch antenna and control the
volume by moving the other hand up and down over the volume loop antenna.
There is no internal
speaker, so it must be used with an amplifier. Not just to amplify
but also for the theremin to work properly. Instrument amplifiers for
electric guitars, keyboards etc. work well. Hi-fi, active computer speakers
can work but may need an appropriate lead. The theremin has a MONO 1/4"
(6.35mm) jack output for a standard electric guitar lead. It won't power
earphones, you will need an amplifier.
The science bit: This is a transistorised, analogue Theremin, using the heterodyning principle. It generates a tone by obtaining the difference audio frequency from two radio frequency oscillators. It has coils in it's oscillators that generate the classic Theremin tone through their reactions with each other.
Because there are no keys or frets etc, the Theremin isn't the easiest instrument to play, but it has to be the most fun!
We have been making Theremins for over 20 years so buy with confidence.
