Rare Ethervox MIDI Theremin For Sale At Auction

Big Briar Ethervox MIDI Theremin

An auction house in North Carolina has listed that a rare Big Briar Ethervox MIDI theremin will be available for sale this weekend.  These extremely rare instruments were produced by Big Briar around 1997-1999.  It is believed that only ~50 were produced.  The Ethervox uses a digital sound generator to produce various timbres and traditional analog electronics to sense proximity.  The Ethervox is unique in that it can output both CV and high resolution 14-bit MIDI signals via a "snake" box.

The auction listing claims the estimate to be $1500-$3000, which in our opinion would be a substantial discount from it's actual value.  Best of luck to all the bidders!
