The article states that the Theremin was used on Good Vibrations. This isn't the case - Good Vibrations used a Tannerin, which sounds like the Theremin but is easier to play as it uses mechanical controls.
 
Paul Tanner played the Electro-Theremin on the Beach Boy's hit Good Vibrations. The Electro-Theremin, often called the Tannerin, is an electronic musical instrument developed by trombonist Paul Tanner and amateur inventor Bob Whitsell in the late 1950s to produce a sound to mimic that of the Theremin
 
Bill Bailey uses one of these in his stand up shows - very entertaining!
