Finally got to see it! Great work, Reid!

It seems a little "dirtier" than the sound of the RCAs or Clara Rockmore's theremin. It would be interesting to compare spectrums between the various theremins to see the different harmonics for the same note played on the various theremins.

I'm sorry I missed this when the vid went up.

Thanks for the close up look at this unique theremin.

I'd play it in a heart beat! :)
