On behalf of my name is Mark. How can I build a Theremin myself? Probably the most difficult undertaking is to get a hold of one of the early articles published in various electronic journals on how to build a Theremin. You’ll read on how to wind your own coils. Many of the components haven’t been available for decades; you’ll just be putting a lot of work into something. The PAIA kit is by far the easiest. There’s also a Kees Theremin, k-e-e-s, the information is available on the internet and they’re out of I believe Australia or Tasmania and they’ve gotten some really good reviews and I’ve been in communication with them and they respond very quickly to emails. But as far as building one from old plans, that’s very difficult. I gave one of my students a set of chassis of extras that I had for this Theremin and he spent 3 years and he was so happy with it when he got it going, it worked the first time. He had to tune it just a little bit, but he said next time he’ll just buy one.
