Built Melodia from coils ordered from Bob Moog out of Electronics World, December 1961. Won Chicago Area Science Fair that year as a 13 year old. Appeared in Fall edition of Moog Music with my "Music From The Ether" project. Kept the coils and other controls, then helped my daughter rebuild the instrument in 1998. Melodia stopped working about 15 years ago and I misplaced my Theremin material. Recently purchased 12/61 Electronics World containing the schematic and test set-up (from and will be repairing it (I believe one of the coils must have a bad solder joint but I'm not sure.)
