Moog Music Etherwave Standard Theremin

Moog Etherwave® Theremin, Standard

Price Range: $499

Available from these stores:


The theremin is one of the oldest electronic instruments, and the only one known that you play without touching. Moving your hands in the space around its antennas controls pitch and volume. Like the Ethervox, the Etherwave is an authentic adaptation of inventor Leon Theremin's original design.

The Etherwave is a quality theremin with a design that retains many characteristics of the original theremins, including a five-octave pitch range and reliable spacing between notes for sophisticated playability. Antennas are nickel-plated 3/8" brass tube and cabinets are furniture-grade hardwood, finished black. The Etherwave is fitted with an adapter for mounting on a standard microphone stand and is designed for use with a musical instrument amplifier such as the Moog TB-15.

All Etherwaves in the ship with two video tutorials on one DVD: Clara Rockmore: the Greatest Theremin Virtuosa, and Mastering the Theremin, featuring Lydia Kavina

Don't Forget!  You will also need some accessories: a microphone stand, an amplifier (keyboard amps work best), and a standard 1/4" audio cable. Amazon also sells the Etherwave in a convenient bundle with a mic stand, cable, and cleaning cloth.
