Well, I have wanted a theremin for a while, but it seems that the only ones with decent sound are incredibly expensive ($500+), so I am going to build my own. This thread will be a log for a my work, and hopefully I will be able to put up a video of it before too long.
Anyway, here are the schematics I decided on:
Today, I went to RadioShack and found all the parts, except for IC sockets (they had ICs, but no sockets, what?!), and two of the four chokes. Tomorrow, I am gonna go to a different radioshack and search for the remaining parts. I have also decided to do this project on breadboard instead of etching a pcb, due to the lack of a computer compatible with my only laser printer, and to save time.
More to come soon. Stay tuned.
