Overview

The Theremin is one of the oldest electronic instruments, and the only one that you play without touching it. 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. It's easy to carry and set up and fun to play.

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" brass tube and cabinets are furniture-grade hardwood. 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 TB-15.

The Etherwave 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.

Features
  • Power Rocker Switch - switches on and off the AC power to Theremin.
  • Audio Out - standard 1/4" phone jack, which delivers line level output to your amplifier.
  • Pitch Rotary Control, for adjusting the response of the pitch antenna.
  • Volume Rotary Control, for adjusting the response of the volume antenna.
  • Waveform Rotary Control, for adjusting the waveform of the audio output.
  • Brightness Rotary Control, for adjusting the brightness of the audio output.
  • Power Input - receptacle for the special AC adapter that comes with the Etherwave. 110V and 220V adapters are available.
Specifications
  • Power supply is included: order 110V for use in US or Canada or 220V for use in Europe, Asia, South America, and Australia. 110V Etherwaves ship with videotapes in NTSC format; 220V Etherwaves ship with videotapes in PAL format.

          I bought this for my Son. He has wanted one for a long time. I first purchased the "other" theremin because the Moog was on backorder and I wanted him to have it for Christmas. it was ok but didnt do what I expected. I got the Moog when it became available and WOW.....the difference is amazing. we still dont really have the hang of it yet but it is definitely better than the other one...spend a little more and get this one, its well worth it

          Very Impressed

          By Travis

          from cleveland ohio

          Comments about Moog Etherwave Theremin Standard:

          when i found out about the theremin, i thought it was the coolest instrument in the world and it is. I've played theremin and owned this model for 8 months. this was everything i thought it would be and more. when i first set it up it was very confusing and the directions weren't very clear how it works. like tuning the instrument to your arm length, or it will function differently in open spaces (stage) opposed to closed spaces (room). the dvds show u how it works, demonstrations, and minor techniques. BUT THERE IS NO CORRECT OR INCORRECT WAY TO PLAY IT. it can be very temperamental but once you figure out how everything works (volume, tone, tuning) , you'll be fine. it sounds amazing and is sensitive to every movement for the control you want. it is the hardest instrument to learn. I played karaoke music and played along with the theremin and did scales. I recommend not buying the theremin plus cuz its a waist of money if you don't have other moog synths. and don't buy the amp cuz it sounds just as good on a guitar amp or keyboard amp or (my setup) drum amp.

          Either get it, or you don't

          By Anonymous

          from Undisclosed

          Comments about Moog Etherwave Theremin Standard:

          I think the Theremin is an instrument that isn't totally made for everyone. I bought mine mainly to create those old cheesy 50's sci fi sounds. It's a extremely tough instrument to play and I don't recommend it for musicians. If you looking to put this in your band or songs or something it probably won't fit. If your looking to create sounds it can be very useful. It's a fun thing to attempt to play and it's a nice conversation piece. Respect it because electronic music wouldn't be around if it wasn't for the Theremin.

          A fantastic device, a real ice-breaker for audience participation! Anyone who enjoys Halloween wackiness or likes to delight listeners should add this instrument to their arsenal of nifty stuff! Have yet to learn a symphony on it, but for spooky sounds, this is tops!

          Not to be undertaken lightly.

          By Byan Peterson

          from Twin Falls, Idaho

          Comments about Moog Etherwave Theremin Standard:

          I've been fascinated by the therimin for several years, more so since I began listening to the music of Jean Michel Jarre, who occasionally uses a therimin in his music. I bought the Moog Etherwave last month and have been playing with it constantly since then. The product was in excellent condition and takes up far less space than I'd thought it would. The two antennas which are used to control it are easy to remove for travel and just as easy to reattach. I will say this much, the therimin definitely is not an instrument to take up lightly. It's a hard instrument to play. Because one plays by moving one's hands around the antennas, it can be easy to mess up what you're playing. Move even a finger at the wrong time and you can mess it up. On the other hand, however, you can use that to your advantage if you only need a minor pitch change. Fortunately, though it's not as blind friendly as I might have liked (yes, I happen to be blind), the DVD that's included with the Etherwave is very interesting to listen to, as it features Lydia Kavina and Clara Rockmore, the two greatest therimin virtuosi after Leon Therimin himself. I never knew Greesleeves could soud so good coming from an instrument most associated with sci-fi soundtracks. So while it is a difficult instrument to play let alone master, I whole heartedly recommend it to anyone interested in learning a new instrument.
