A nice pocket theremin
César José dos 23.06.2015
For those who love to explore weird sounds, this is a great toy to add to the collection. The controls are simple and easy to operate. It makes the typical sounds of a theremin, but you can not get more than a few tones, although you can change the intensity as in a regular theremin. The plastic enclosure is a downer , but it comes in a decent transport case. It would be interesting to include some reverb or delay, because the sound lacks some depth. But for the price, you can not ask for more. It's a nice trick to pull on a live show to add some experimentalism to the performance, to put on some studio traks or just to play arround in the rehearsal room.

Funny noises
JDrost 31.08.2020
Can't stop playing with this thing. You can produce some really cool noises. I ran it though overdrive, delay and a wah pedal and annoyed the neighbours for a good couple of hours. The built quality is allright but nothing too fancy. I like it.

Great for spacey effects.
TrEr 25.11.2015
This isn't really comparable too the more expensive "real" Theremins as it's almost impossible to play melodies on it. However, as an effect it is great and very atmospheric, preferrably combined with a delay and/or other effects. The build quality feels a little cheap and the light weight combined with the placement of the antenna makes it very unstable. It really need to be secured with tape, velcro or similar. For the price it is very nice though. Not a necessity but great fun!

Nice little toy
Silverwake 07.04.2017
Please note that this is not a real Theremin, it's a "toy-theremin".
It's very good for the price, and it sounds amazing through a guitar amp. The cons: you can't control the pitch as you would with a real theremin where you have two axes to control pitch and volume.
It's however very nice to experiment with and add accents to tunes, but don't expect to get the exact same sound twice as it's quite hard to control.
Also if you set it near any other electronic device (any other amps, a PA, mobile phone, etc), it will interfere with its sound.
However, as I was saying, for the price it's a fun instrument to play with. The shell is also quite sturdy and it comes with a soft plastic case. You'll need a tiny screwdriver to set it up. The power supply is a battery, so it's fully portable.
