    Check this out.

    There have been threads in the past asking if a theremin would be good for a person with tendonitis who can't play bass any longer. Don't know the answer but this proves one CAN play bass on a theremin!

    I can see a theremin built into a standard bass guitar shape with pitch on one hand (neck) and volume on the middle of the "guitar". Might be cool!

    Hey, I happen to own a theremin and mine sure doesn't get bass tone like hers! I have never seen anything quite like this. Hey, I haven't even IMAGINED anything quite like this was even possible!

    A Theremin has got to be the ultimate "fretless". Not only no frets, you don't even touch the bass!

    The theremin has been around since the mid 1920's.

    Pamelia is originally a bass player. I have seen Pamelia perform her walking bass lines on theremin live several times and it is unbelievable. And the tone is very much upright like to say the least.
