Electronic Orange: Widara now produces our Distant Voices Theremin
Widara is a small Czech company that approached us with a request for a simple, one-pole antenna, rock stage theremin - the way we have known this magical instrument from Led Zeppelin concert clips. We have happily designed a retro unit that follows what they asked for.

We are proudly announcing that Widara has recently brought the theremin to the market under a name Distant Voices Theremin. It is all soldered, wired and assembled by hand in the Czech Republic. No Chinese manufacturing.


  • The unit runs from a 9V battery.

  • It has a plastic enclosure, as the theremin design needs a non-conducting enclosure, also it doesn't need any shielding like guitar pedals.

  • The "Adjust" knob tunes the sensitivity of the "pitch" pole antenna.

  • There is a little trim pot on the front panel, for the occasional, rough tuning.

  • There is no volume antenna, you don't need it, Jimmy Page didn't needed it either.

  • After a fine tuning, the unit is capable to react on a human body motion(waving arms) at as far as 60-90 cm distance.

  • The Distant Voices Theremin doesn't come with a stand but because the unit is very lite, you can use a piece of velcro and basically any stand you find around.



We highly recommend using a delay unit between the theremin and an amplifier, to get the right sci-fi sound out of it.
