Matryoshka

Nesting Drums
Nested Drums

Matryoshka is a drum kit where each drum “nests” inside the others like Russian dolls (Matryoshka) to make transportation and storage far more convenient.

As a drummer in a band that regularly played at different venues, I wanted to design a kit that would make the job of lugging around and setting up the kit much easier. As well as significantly reducing the space it takes up when collapsed, this kit also memorises the exact location of each drum and cymbal, which removes all the guess work and tweaking from the set-up process making it much faster.

This project was a key part of the final year of my Masters at Coventry University.
