The Amazing Electro Tron - Custom Built Theremin - Vintage Radio look - The sound of Science Fiction
Yea it looks kind of weird, But what it does is too Cool.. The sound of Science Fiction..
The theremin was invented in 1919 by a Russian physicist named Lev Termen (in the United States his name was Leon Theremin). Today, this marvelous instrument is once again in the musical spotlight.
Besides looking like no other instrument, the theremin is unique in that it is played without being touched.
Two antennas protrude from the theremin - one controlling pitch, and the other controlling volume. As a hand approaches the vertical antenna, the pitch gets higher. Approaching the horizontal antenna makes the volume softer. Because there is no physical contact with the instrument, playing the theremin in a precise melodic way requires practiced skill and keen attention to pitch.
This unit needs to be hooked up to an external amplifier, Soon I will have match working horn units to go with these Theremins as a matching set.
Also i will custom design a label of your choice.
