This is a transistor theremin originally published in Everyday Practical Electronics by Jake Rothman, with pitch control only. I found it on www.lynx.bc.ca/~jc/pedals.html. This is a modified version of the E.P.E. 1995 theremin plan. I don't know what has been modified. The author says it has a nice tone, perhaps it's what you're looking for if you don't need a volume control. The diagram is rather large, but i found the text become unreadable when scaling it down, it's best viewed printed.
