Started ordering my birthday and Xmas presents--a Theremax kit, amplifier, etc. etc.

Excellent, hope you can bundle them and get them "gifted" in advance so you don't have to wait till the winter holidays and can get at it ASAP.

Please keep us posted on how it goes.

Yep--makin' a list and checkin' it twice...

Will be making some modifications as per Fred Nachbauer and others. Plan to experiment with different sizes of pitch antennae and induction coils (using a friend's oscilloscope) and post the results (or a link to them) here.

What convinced me was a comment by Lydia Kavina that with only a half hour's practice per day one could play pretty decently in six or seven years.

I stopped into a thrift store yesterday, and found a camera flash (for 87 cents) that had a metal plate in the bottom tapped for a camera tripod--which I have; just the thing to mount my Theremax!
