Re: Theremin + Fuzz Integrated into a guitar
Hi John,  
a ring modulator basically is an analog multplier with two inputs (but you probably know that). What kind of R.M. circuit will it be? Double balanced mixer or VCA or else? IMO you will have best results with:  
Pickups -> Fuzz -> R.M. Input 1 and  
Theremin -> R.M. Input 2.  
This will give you cool effects when you hold a note or a chord on the guitar and then approach the theremin plate...  
If you don't have a theremin circuit yet, check out Art's Theremin Page:  
His "Simple Theremin" might just suit your needs. Please keep us posted about the results.  
Best regards from a theremin addict
