The Elysian was originally made by Longwave Instruments in the UK. The company later changed names to Rosedene Audio, but it seems to be defunct now. Their website was http://www.fullerton.demon.co.uk/, but today it just shows a logo and not much else.

Anyone know what happened to Longwave/Rosedene?

I bought an Elysian Theremin some time ago, after owning an (earlier) Longwave instruments Theremin from the same company. I had a number of issues with it, including the build quality (e.g. the mic stand socket was a badly-angled-welded nut on the bottom) and a delay in the response of the volume anntena, which made it totally unplayable, for me at least. Yep, the volume antenna is a plate, and plays closer-louder (the reversal of the standard way). The instrument met a sorry end by getting mysteriously lost in the mail. Bit of a shame as I really liked my first Longwave one.
Anyway, I immediately replaced it with an Etherwave, which was a very, very wise move.
