I'm 100% certain a company with the resources of Behringer could make a fantastic Theremin for $99USD.  But I'm 99% certain they won't because I'm 99% certain no one with any influence at Behringer actually plays the thing, and their engineers probably don't understand that optimal coils can't be bought from some coil company.  But I assume they're looking to dominate the Theremini market, which isn't exactly a challenge.  These things should sell like hotcakes, and it's always weird to me that making thousands of something like a musical instrument doesn't make the manufacturer pull out all the stops on the basic design.  Art vs. capitalism, and capitalism always wins.

Remember the Yugo?

Behringer just put another post on FB a couple of days ago saying they're still working on the Bheremin..

My guess is that when it finally goes into production it will be worth buying - Of course it wont be as good as an EW Pro or Claravox but it will still be worth playing. I have a small synth and a mixer from Behringer andboth are cheap and good. Maybe not as good as an expensive item but close enough for me a non professional player

Im more interested by the open theremin project than the bheremin. There’s clearly a wealth of knowledge that goes in the former. But I’m sure the early adopters of the bheremin will tell us soon enough if it’s worth the $99!
