My name is Matt Nolan and I am a musical instrument maker. I make a wide variety of metal percussion instruments. I have a business making both off-the-shelf and bespoke instruments for orchestras, percussionists, drummers, composers, collectors – all sorts of people and organisations from all over the world.
Usually, I work alone, in my workshop hidden away under the railway line in Bath, England, UK. Sometimes I work in teams, usually cross-disciplinary and often international on cool and crazy projects.
This blog presents some of the more interesting things I’ve worked on or researched.
Hope you enjoy!
