Organic in it's response, and a sure curiousity in anyone's studio. Watch as everyone gravitates towards it. Can be used to make very uplifting pad sounds (think joyius siren) to wild Yoko Ono banshee screams to haunting melodies drifting in the background of your mix. The tone is a little thin so plug it into a Roland Space echo and torque that intensity knob... for a sample: hear my mp3 track featuring it's retro haunt sound: http://artists.mp3s.com/artists/84/the_thief_of_sleep.html

Definitely an interesting machine... Like othello... a few minutes to learn, a life time to master. I got it 2 months ago and tried it with ring modulator and Line6 POD. It can generate all kinds of sound depending on what effect you have. Does anybody feel sleepy while practising on this machine. Sometime I fell asleep and couldn't stand still. Maybe it's a good machine to put baby to sleep.

Bought my etherwave used last week...only cost me $249. Hard as hell to play a melody but well worth the fun and effort. The sound is interesting on its own, but effects boxes really add impact. I ran it through an analog delay and it wailed!...Forbidden Planet sound! This is a machine that you can get down and meditate with. The etherwave also is a beautiful machine that looks nice in the living room...Fine black wood finish. I finally found an instrument that draws my attention away from synthesizers... I highly recommend the etherwave.

big briar put out a very nice quality kit. the tone sounds a lot better thru a little guitar amp. i have absolutely no control playing it though. frustrating to spend all that energy building (& modifying -- mine's in a clear, plexiglass box) it, and then you come to the realization that it is sooooo hard to play. i would not recommend putting it in a clear plexiglass box because it screws up the tuning and the box doesn't stay together very well. better to use big briar's pretty wooden one. anyways, i feel you can't go wrong getting a theremin built by bob moog's company.

It's probably the Juno-106 of the Theremin World. It's not the fattest, it's not the coolest, it's not the mightiest sounding. But it is easy to use, versatile, kind of funky in it's own weird way and it sounds warm and clean. It has got a sound quality which is very close to the classicals theremin sound of the 30's. If you're not satisfied with it, make sure you buy a new guitar amp and a wah-wah. If you're not satisfied then, you shouldn't be playing the theremin.
