I think I saw this posted on the site before, but it's been a while. What types of pedals or other addons do people use with their theremins? I've tried a wah, which gave a pretty hilarious voice-like sound.

Scott, electrifying the musical saw is pretty easy.

I have a Dean Markley acoustic guitar pickup that I just hold against it whil I play. It is one of the ones that are meant to go in the sound hole of a guitar.

I am trying to come up with a way to mount it so that I don't have to hold it in place while I play.

I will let you know what I come up with.

I may go with the velcor. The Dean Markly has felt on the bottom to protect the guitar's finish. Maybe the velcro will stick to that.

Other wise it's double-sided tape time!

I have a ZOOM 506 and recently I got an ZOOM BFX-708...
Lots better!! the delay included was what I needed, and still has los of effects in fact better for a theremin than a bass guitar. Still low-quality FX, but damn good for a cheap price.

I love my Zoom 508 delay.

In fact, I am looking for another one on Ebay.

I am currently running my bass through the Zoom 506 but I am not as happy with that as I could be. There doesn't seem to be as much control over the effects as I would like and the delay is puny.

What pedal would you recommend for beginner? One of the Moog pedals? I know nothing of pedals, they are new to me. But I am highly interested of them as well.
