Why not order a pre-assembled Etherwave from a company like zZounds? They have a simple 30-day no hassle return policy. And according to their FAQ, there is no restocking fee for a return either. Then, you could try it for a couple of weeks to see if you really like it, and if not, return it. You may lose a little $ to ship it back, but consider it a rental fee :)

Just checking in to see of Thereminless will need to change his/her handle...

You probably can't go wrong purchasing an Etherwave Standard. They hold their value and if you kept it a year or two and then decided to part with it your cost of ownership would be pretty low.

Will look forward to hearing your decision -- and my hunch is that you will be happy once you "take the plunge".

Thereminless,

Just thinking, what would we then address you when you do get your Theremin? ;-)

I suppose I could take a cue from the pop music world, and call myself, "The artist formerly known as Thereminless."

I know I'll get one, or make one, eventually. Shortwave and ham radio was a big hobby of mine from the mid 1960s, until the mid 1980s. It wasn't until a year ago that I knew that radio circuits could be used to make music (my main hobby today).

My other hobby is gardening. I bet you guys didn't know that you could make a theremin out of fruits and vegetables:

Thereminless - sounds like a really interesting project! Unfortunately, when I went to your link, the photos weren't working.

Sorry, I didn't intend to mislead. I was not the inventor of the Lemonica, Dr. Starrett in New Mexico was (I wish I were that creative). He did tell me that there was at least one public performance of the Lemonica. I guess the further you impale the lemon on the two electrodes, it changes the voltage, and the pitch.

Yes, unfortunately the pictures are down. His Vegephone is interesting also. His Starrboard is a genuine musical instrument, however.

Thereminless.
