Need a replacement for this broken antenna. The antenna seems to be broken right at the base, yet the threading of the Theremin itself is good.

I'm sure Moog Music will sell you a replacement antenna.

Otherwise, in the short term, it is a simple 3/8" compression fitting. If you still have the nut, all you need is a 3/8" ferrule (compression ring).

[edit] I should have mentioned you can find these with the tubing fittings in the plumbing department of your favorite hardware store. You can get another nut there as well. [/edit]

If the antenna is actually broken (shorter), that may affect the tuning just a bit (higher).

[edit] If that is the case, you may be able to counteract the effect by picking up a few 3/8" washers while you're at the hardware store. Just slide a few of them over the pitch antenna (to add mass) until you're happy. [/edit]
