Theremin design advice sought

I’ve mentioned subscope theremins here before, recently. Here is the thing: if I do buy one some day – and I hear they sound as good as they look – besides the problem of financing one, there would be the even tougher problem of deciding on the design. Because it is so flexible. Basically, the instrument can be built in any container one desires. Looking at the site, I find most of them very attractive. I like the little suitcase model, I like the acrylic tube model. I like the wooden boxes.

What do you think would look good? A slim acrylic box? Something else? Animal skulls and creepy dolls are out, just FYI.

    Wow. Nice touch, having the volume antenna where it is. My first thought, of course, was to have a band playing these, arranged so the he badgers looked like they were playing cards.

  2. There may be no topping the badgermin.

    One has to wonder whether it would be possible to combine this idea with plastination, and the smallest man in the world.

    And the world’s hottest pepper.

  5. I have a Subscope (the V3) and I love it. It’s by far the best theremin I’ve ever played on. I’ve played many, and that is the one that makes my heart sing!
