Remember the awesome video from a few days ago, featuring The Thrilling Sound Of 14 Matrioshka Doll Theremins?

Japan Trend Shop is a source for the Matryomin theremins,. Unfortunately, they are pricey – $744.

Here’s an example of what the $744 Matryomin sounds like:

Here’s what they have to say about them:

The Matryomin QT is the latest creation of Japanese thereminist Masami Takeuchi. It consists of a miniature pitch-only theremin encased in a beautiful handmade matryoshka made especially for the Matryomin in Russia.

Because each Matryomin is handmade, they are all different, but each of the QT models are similar in theme. To play, simply turn it on and use your hands to manipulate the sound without ever touching it! After some practice, the Matryomin makes a great addition to studios, live shows, or just around the house.

Matryomin features:

  • Size: 215x100mm (8.5”x3.9”)
  • Weight: 500g. (18 oz.)
  • Audio outputs (low and high)
  • Internal speaker
  • Takes 4 AA batteries
  • Easy to open
