I made this cabinet for a Theremin Kit I soldered together. I used bits of and pieces of wood laying around from other projects. The style is inspired by antique cylinder phonographs which I collect. The antennas are brass rod with cap and base of brass door knobs.. I dont know how to play it, but I can make fun noise.

I made one some 30 years ago, from a Southwest Technical products kit and also put it in a nice box I made but it was promptly stolen. So I got the bug only recently and searched around for a kit and started all over again. I remember back in the late 60's at Fillmore West watching a band call Sweathog whose drummer used a Theremin and I guess that was my first introduction.

After looking again, I think that the volume and pitch rods might be too close together to really access the expressiveness the PAiA Theremax could give a player.
Just my thoughts as a PAiA Theremax owner since 2005, and custom cabinet/box builder, myself.
Good Luck!

I just make noise to show off.
