Art Harrison

The Beach Boys "Good Vibrations" did not use a theremin, but rather an instrument that was given the misleading name of "electro-theremin." The electro-theremin, invented by Paul Tanner and constructed with the assistance of Bob Whitsell, was an audio oscillator fitted with a slider and printed scale. Tanner invented the electro-theremin to provide pitch-accurate theremin-like sounds with much greater ease than possible with a true theremin.
