Synthoid Posted September 26, 2013 Share Posted September 26, 2013 Well, let's just say I attempted to play a Theremin--that's more accurate. Some of you may recall my post awhile back about a local high school marching band using a Theremin in their Star Trek themed half-time shows. I gave the school a call and set up an appointment with the band director to check out the Theremin. The unit the school purchased is a base model with only one antenna for pitch, so there's no volume control. It was set up in a soundproof practice room... I quickly found out why. Anyway, after giving me a quick demo, the band director went back to his office after shutting the practice room door so I wouldn't disturb anyone. It took me awhile, but I was able to coax a very basic melody out of it. It's definitely an instrument that requires a lot of practice (and patience). I doubt I'd buy one, but it was an interesting experience. Anyone else here on the forum played one? When an eel hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that's a Moray.
