Model 2856 Solid State Theremin
We developed the Music From The Ether Model 2856 Theremin so that owning a high quality Theremin that you didn't have to build could be within reach of everyone. The front panel controls are legibly marked and logically placed making them easily accessible, as are the rear panel controls. The front panel contains a built in amplifier with a 3.2mm (1/8") stereo headphone jack for private playing or practicing. The front panel controls are from left to right, VOLUME TUNE, PITCH TUNE, WAVE, BRIGHT and PHONE VOLUME. The rear panel contains the power input jack, ON/OFF switch and a standard 1/4" Mono phono jack for outputting to an external amplifier or mixing board. The instrument can be played sitting on a table top or podium. There is also a bottom mounted threaded flange so that it may be attached to a microphone stand. The Model 2856 comes to you fully assembled, tested and ready to play. Just add electricity!
PLEASE NOTE: There is no built in output amplifier. The audio output of this instrument is LINE AUDIO which is 1v/P-P (1-volt peak to peak), as such it is considered to be Pro-Audio gear. Additionally, you will need an external amplifier with a LINE AUDIO input jack. Also, the front panel headphone jack is designed for traditional 8-Ohm headphones which means that "earbuds" of the type used with cellphones will not yield satisfactory results because of the differences in impedence.
