I'm looking to build a Theremin, and so far the best info I've found on an entire build is a pdf from cs.nmsu.edu . ( http://www.cs.nmsu.edu/~rth/EMTheremin.pdf ) . It's written by Robert moog, has detailed instructions and a parts list. I was just wondering if anyone's had experience with this particular article and if so, what's their opinion. Also, does anyone have any other reference material for making one?
I have a good amount of the items listed from the parts list, and have a number of others coming in on an order. I plan on fabricating most of the items I can, which is why I like this article since it gives good info. I also plan on making my own coils. I'm hoping to be able to start building here within this next month or so, after I finish my current project, which is a 5w vacuum tube amplifier I'll be making mostly for my guitar. I was considering, probably far down the road, if all goes well with these two builds, of making a vacuum tube theremin, so if anyone has any reference or opinion, I'd appreciate anything you guys want to offer.
I'm an electronics student and so this is something I've been wanting to do for quite a while, not only because I like playing and creating music, but also as a learning experience.
