    a vast array of sounds from traditional theremin timbres to space age oddities Playability If you want to make music on a theremin look for one with great pitch linearity Better linearity means the notes are spaced more evenly apart across the theremin s pitch range No theremin is perfectly linear but generally the more expensive models tend to have better linearity and are thus a bit easier to play Kit or Pre Built If you re considering a kit theremin it s important to have at least a basic understanding of electronics and a little previous experience with building electronics kits If you can follow directions closely and you are comfortable with a soldering iron you can build any kit out there Kits are also a great way to save a little money on a decent quality theremin Even if you re not familiar with soldering you might be able to find a friend or family member to help you build the kit One great kit option is the Moog Etherwave Standard theremin kit This is a great sounding two antenna theremin with decent linearity and best of all most of the soldering and tuning is already done for you by Moog engineers You simply wire up the controls on the front panel to the main board and finish the cabinet to your liking Or if you re into modular synth gear upgrade to the Moog Etherwave Plus theremin featuring CV control outputs For the more adventurous the PAIA Theremax kit requires much more soldering but can be a fun kit to build Timbre and Timbre Control You can do a lot with effects pedals but it always helps to have some basic control over the sound generated by the theremin Do you prefer a harsher sawtooth wave or a more flute like sine or square wave output Be sure to listen to sound samples of a theremin before you purchase one to see if you like the overall tone The Moog Etherwave is a traditional analog theremin and allows you to modify pitch and timbre via two knobs on the front panel The Moog Theremini has a built in digital synthesizer engine While it might not sound as organic as an analog theremin it offers a wide range of sounds to play with Portability Virtually all commercially theremins these days are easily portable with removable antennas The old RCA theremins Big Briar series 91 or Ethervox models came in large wooden cabinets that looked amazing but were fairly heavy If you travel with your theremin a lot consider getting a padded gig bag to protect it Aesthetics This may seem minor to some but consider whether or not you like how the theremin looks Are you looking for a more classic shape like the RCA lecturn cases something more utilitarian like the Moog Etherwave or something modern and spacey like the Moog Theremini Theremin Other Features Some theremins such as the Moog Etherwave Plus Moog Theremini and the
