Hi all, I'm looking for some advice on a build so this is my first forum post here.
I've recently built a theremin from a Jaycar Silicon Chip kit but it sounds very distorted. I've wired guitars and built effect pedals before, so I have a basic understanding of what I'm doing, but I can't seem to figure out where this distortion is coming from. It's very frustrating considering some of the very clean samples I've heard and makes it almost unplayable. The distortion exists when using both the internal speaker and the line out, so I can only assume it is something internal.
Any ideas why this might be happening? Have I fried something during construction, or could there be a faulty component?
