Então Oscar, do ThereminHispano, postou algo, ainda no fórum, que depois virou notícia:
Brazilian imitation of the etherwave std.Papo vai, papo vem... Link.
Around 250 euros, which is half the prize an Etherwave costs in Spain. And of course, they do sell it in wooden colors (not that black lacquer I was thinking on taking out of mine)
A gente não pode ser o último a saber. Ano passado (2007) já rolava no fórum do mundo teremin:
The owners manual PDF looks like it includes a basic introduction to playing the instrument in Portuguese.Link.
http://www.theremin.com.br/docs/manualrdstheremin.pdf. They also provide on line the Rockmore technique booklet in English.
I have heard tell of several thereminists in Brazil and South America, very glad they have a closer source for instruments! It does look a lot like the Moog, from what I can tell the manual seems comparable too.
If anyone has one, or has heard from those players in South America who use it, please chime in. If these are as good as they look, it might be a helpful resource to our colleagues in Latin America.
Eis a notícia/anúncio final:

Depois vieram questionamentos e imagens do RDS Theremin:
I found a schematic for the RDS theremin which is a copy of the Etherwave.
The schematic is very much like the one in the Hot Rodding and Etherwave pdf except in two places!
In the pitch tuning circuit C11 is a 100uF cap going to ground, in the Hot Rodding pdf it is 47uF going to +12V.
Here is a cropped pic:
I have always thought it was an error in the Hot Rodding manual....
Is the RDS correct or the Hot Rodding manual?
I also noticed that C13 has been changed to 1uF from the 22uF value of the Hot Rodding manual.
E por aí foi o papo. Link.
Por enquanto é só... ainda veremos mais teremins e tereministas brasileiros caindo na web.
