Moog Claravox Centennial Theremin from the front

Moog is celebrating a rare anniversary with the Claravox Centennial Theremin. The only electronic musical instrument that can be played without contact was first presented in the USA in October 1920 by the Russian Lev Termen (aka Leon Theremin) and now looks back on a 100-year history. Once called the "Aerophone", the instrument consists of a box containing the technology and two antennas. The curved, horizontal antenna controls the volume, while the straight, vertical antenna controls the pitch of the built-in tone generator. Clara Rockmore, born in 1911, gained access to the Theremin and proved to be a true virtuoso on this exceptional instrument. Moog dedicates this anniversary synthesizer to her name and at the same time refers to the 100-year history of the theremin, several decades of which are also closely linked to company founder Robert "Bob" Moog. Musically, the theremin is not so easy to place. True experts play a theremin as artfully and tonally to the point as a violin, those who love whale song and settings of old science fiction and scary movies will look at the instrument from an experimental point of view.

The most complete theremin ever.

In Traditional mode, the sound is generated by an analog oscillator that can be faded continuously from sine to triangle. The Modern-Mode on the other hand uses a wavetable oscillator. The wavetables can be scrolled manually with the wave control. In Modern mode, you can also activate the Quantizer, which adjusts the played tones to even notes. Afterwards, the selected oscillator is subtly processed with a resonance-free lowpass filter and a simple but effective equalizer (brightness). Finally, the signal is fed into an analog BBD delay, which tends to color at higher feedback values and adds a charismatic stamp to the overall sound. The round antenna controls the volume of the internal VCA s, the upstanding antenna plays the pitch of the oscillator. The response of each antenna is finely adjustable. Six memory locations for your own sounds can be assigned to the Claravox Centennial Theremin, and the instrument can also be edited via app. The case of the beautifully crafted instrument is made of high-quality walnut wood. Matching to it we recommend the Claravox Standa tripod stand made of the same wood, exclusively designed for the CCT.
