[sdiy] Power supply for Big Briar Etherwave Theremin

It shouldn’t actually damage a MIDI device if it was plugged into one as the MIDI pins aren’t there.

But yeah, we (mis)used DIN connectors like there was no alternative back in the old days :-)

Here’s a photo of mine. Funny, the MIDI warning on the label.

The connector on my Etherwave is a 5-pin connector, so the power plug can be either 3-pin or 5-pin.

I have an opportunity to buy a Big Briar Etherwave Theremin from a friend for cheap. The only problem is it is missing the power supply.
Searching online, I find a lot of Moog Etherwave power supplies.
Does anyone happen to know if these are compatible?
The power plug on the Big Briar unit is a 5-pin midi style plug.
Pictures of the Moog power supply look like 3 pins.

I’m wondering if they just simply removed two pins and the three fit in the midi style plug.
If not compatible, does anyone know where to get a hold of the Big Briar supply?
