Invented in 1920 in Russia, the Theremin is the original electronic instrument and has been used in albums by artists from the Beach Boys to the Flaming Lips to add a unique sound to their track. It’s easy to handle, but difficult to master, as you use your hands proximity to the volume and pitch antennas to create music. The new Gakken Premium Theremin is a compact version that produces quality sound at a reasonable price.
Use your right hand to adjust the tone, and your left to change the volume, but no need to touch! The small speaker will provide ample sound, but you can also connect the theremin to external speakers, or even mix it with other instruments such as Gakken’s Analog Synthesizer!

• Size: W220 x H36 x D120mm (8.5 x 1.5 x 4.7”)
