Has anyone here played a Pegna theremin?

He's very good at answering emails. Delivering the goods is the problem.

My experience with "dealing with Mr Pegna" is the exact opposite of yours! I've ordered through his facebook page a "satie 2" 3 or 4 years ago. And yes, it took himĀ  3 to 4 months to build it, but he let me choose the appearance of the theremin. I received it in Paris in a case without paying anything in advance. I paid the announced price by paypal -with no charge for delivery- once I had tried the full features and playability of it.

Since then, I've never had any trouble with it, playing it in several gigs in a rock band. It is a reliable machine, even though I use it for sound effects more than for playing tunes... And this is not due to the playabilty of the machine, but to my laziness!

Really? I've always been very interested in hearing the Satie II more thoroughly than the limited recordings currently available. Would you be willing to post a video of you playing it and showing off its range and timbral capabilities (if it has any timbre adjustment)? I think a lot of people here would really appreciate that.

The same goes for anyone else in a position to record some high-quality samples of the instrument. It would be interesting to see if it at all resembles the sound of the older RCA models...
