Theremin Electronics Kit

Make Music Without Touch in Our First Kit

A theremin is a musical instrument that uses electric fields to make sound without touch. Change pitch and volume by simply waving your hands around two antennas. The theremin is a fascinating way to explore music and physics, and now you can build one yourself!

 
 

The Kit:

  • 24 Parts including: A Microprocessor named Micro, Oscillator named Tick, Speaker, Capacitor, 2 Resistors, 2 Antennas, 14 Wires, Battery Holder, and Circuit Building Block. Note: 3 AA Batteries Required. 
  • No tools required. Place parts in the Circuit Building Block to connect.

The Building Process:

  • Step-by-step instructional booklet, with interludes to explore the theory behind how the circuit works.
  • This circuit is built in three stages, giving you a chance to check your work and troubleshoot before continuing.

The Complete Theremin:

  • Volume and Pitch control from capacitance (a true theremin).
  • 3 octaves range of notes.
  • Filtered square wave tone.
  • Automatically calibrates to almost any situation.

What You'll Learn:

  • What parts are needed for a circuit, what they do, and how they connect.
  • How to troubleshoot mistakes and check your work as you go.
  • How electric fields and capacitance work, and are turned into a signals.
