Gakken releases premium theremin

Gakken releases premium theremin

Gakken recently released a relatively low cost deluxe theremin. Complete with iconic antennae configuration, the instrument sounds quite nice indeed. After a brief tour through relevant user-made vids, I suspect it’s inspired many to actually learn how to play music the easy-to-pick-up-difficult-to-master device (and that’s cool in and of itself) – Gakken Premium (Google translation) [via Theremin World]

    MAn this looks sweet. If only I didn’t already have a theremin…I mean how many theremins does a man need? Considering I can’t even play a proper scale or melody….

    @Sadnoiss – thanks for posting the pics – and subscribing!

    Hmmm, ever consider organizing a meetup or a hacker group?

    Well, you can’t have too many theremins IMHO :-) Will this appear in the Maker Store soon?

  5. Collin Cunningham says:

    @Tracy – I hope so! I’ll definitely send word when I know for sure.

    “Too many” and “Musical Instruments” are 2 phrases that don’t go together. Come to think of it, there’s a lot of things “Too many” doesn’t go with… Bicycles… Radios… Clocks… Houseplants…. Cats… No, scratch that, there *IS* such a thing as “Too many Cats”…
