This is a completely analog theremin that sounds amazing (recreates the sound of Moog's Theremins in the 60's)! This theremin is in NEAR MINT condition and has barely been played, probably less than 2 hours total. The theremin is one of the oldest electronic instruments, and the only one known that you play without touching. Moving your hands in the space around its antennas controls pitch and volume. The Etherwave is an authentic adaptation of inventor Lev Termen's original design.
I am the original owner. It is personally signed by Bob Moog, and the Letter of Authenticity is included. There isn't a scratch on it and it is 100% functional. Includes the Theremin, Big Briar AC adapter, operation manual, Letter of Authenticity.
The Moog Etherwave Theremin is a quality musical instrument designed for ruggedness and portability. It has a five-octave pitch range and reliable spacing between notes for sophisticated playability. Antennas are nickel-plated 3/8" brass tube and cabinets are furniture-grade hardwood, finished with a custom Moog stain. The Etherwave is fitted with an adapter for mounting on a standard microphone stand.

Robert Moog passed away on August 21, 2005. What a wonderful, brilliant man he was. He brought joy to so many people throughout the world, and still does through his amazing electronic instruments which are more popular than ever! Before Bob's passing, he personally tested and signed a limited number of his Etherwave Theremins and these were called the, "Signature Edition". In February, 2004, Moog Music stopped production of this model.
The Moog Signature Etherwave Theremin is hand-signed in bold by the legendary designer. Bob's Signature Etherwave Theremin is of the same high quality as his early designs from the '50's and '60's. They feature high-quality 3/8" nickel-plated brass antennas, and furniture-grade hardwoods & Birch plywood cabinet. Included are the Big Briar / Moog power supply and operation manual with Letter of Authenticity.
Whether you are a collector, musician, hobbyist or historian, you will love this Theremin.

Moog Music Inc. discontinued the production of the Etherwave Signature Series theremin at the end of February 2004. These special instruments, autographed and played by Bob Moog will remain collectible for years to come. Bob Moog’s 50 years of contributions to theremin design have helped anchor the theremin as a legitimate instrument and helped to increase its popularity and visibility. Dr. Moog’s experience in theremin design led him to the development of the first Moog synthesizer in 1964. Moog Music is the World’s leading theremin manufacturer and the Etherwave is the most popular theremin on the market today.
The Moog Signature Series has Bob Moog's signature on its front panel. The Theremin is made of solid wood, mic-stand mountable. It is a truly analog instrument so you get an authentic and warm sound with modern quality and specifications. A few knobs on the face plate control waveform, brightness and level.
The theremin is one of the oldest electronic instruments, and the only one known that you play without touching. Moving your hands in the space around its antennas controls pitch and volume. Like the Ethervox, the Etherwave is an authentic adaptation of inventor Leon Theremin's original design. The Etherwave is a quality theremin with a design that retains many characteristics of the original theremins, including a five-octave pitch range and reliable spacing between notes for sophisticated playability. Antennas are nickel-plated 3/8 inch brass tube and cabinets are furniture-grade hardwood, finished black. The Etherwave is fitted with an adapter for mounting on a
standard microphone stand and is designed for use with a musical instrument amplifier such as the Moog TB15.
The Theremin is back! The Big Briar/Moog Music Moog Signature Series Etherwave Theremin allows you to create those whistling sine wave sounds using your hands, arms, elbows or head! The Theremin was designed in the earlier part of the 20th century by Leon Theremin. It's a simple oscillating circuit that produces a simple sine wave over a 5-octave pitch range. Two antenna perpendicular to each other (one is loop-shaped) create your playing field. The vertical one controls pitch and the horizontal volume. By moving your hands in the field between these you affect the capacitance within the rods and thus, the oscillators pitch and volume. This is truly a unique and difficult but masterable form of sci-fi music performance.
