Bob Moog 1961

In 1961, Dr. Robert Moog published one of the first transistorized theremin designs. It was a popular design, as he sold over 1000 kits. Today this still is a nice design for 'your first theremin'. You may need to consult a store, specialized in radio components, for suitable coil replacements. Page 1-5 is the full article, with interesting info on the circuit and on making the coils. If you don't want to download all the large files, you could just download the diagram with partlist.
