The Claravox Centennial was designed in celebration of the 100-year anniversary of the invention of the theremin by Leon Theremin. It’s named after the original theremin virtuosa, Clara Rockmore.

The Claravox is one of the most advanced theremins ever created, pairing traditional analog theremin control with an onboard analog delay, preset storage and more.
