Moog Theremini: The Accessible Theremin

by Paul Strauss

Ever wanted to play a theremin just so you could play the opening theme song from Star Trek? Most theremins are expensive and extremely difficult to master. On the other hand, this modern theremin by Moog is only about $300 and includes features to help you learn how to play it correctly.

Like the original, the Moog Theremini is played by waving your hand in proximity to the instrument’s antenna. But this new version provides visual feedback to help ensure your hand is placed correctly. It also offers assistive pitch quantization – which is fancy talk for saying you can’t play a bad note. This feature can be adjusted based on your skill level. It’s also capable of playing 32 different sounds – not just the traditional outer space whine we all know and love, but a wide variety of otherworldly sounds.

You can get the Moog Theremini over at Hammacher Schlemmer or ThinkGeek now.
