1972 Maestro Theremin TH-1

Here is a vintage 1972 Maestro Theremin “TH-1” electronic musical proximity instrument designed by Bob Moog for Maestro. This particular example, serial number E-0809, is in near mint all original condition. The Maestro TH-1, unlike typical theremins, uses (2) plate antennas which creates a tonally unique sound, and while not the most musical, it is certainly one of the rarest and most unusual theremins ever built. With an aesthetic more like a space-age alien mind-reading device than that of its 1920’s breadbox-like predecessor, this Moog-designed unit is by far the best looking of any produced, and presents quite impressively when mounted atop a mic stand.

The Maestro TH-1 was famously used by Bobby Bilan who’s stint with The Guess Who in 1979 solidified his importance in sonic wave manipulation for the next 30 years.

This example works perfectly and includes the original mic stand adapter, which mounts to the underside of the chassis. While these infrequently pop up online, it is quite rare that an example in such excellent shape is offered for sale, so don’t miss out, this is a prime example.
