The Clarke Tinwhistle Kazoo produces a pleasant 'buzzing' sound when you hum, sing or speak into it. The quality of the sound is very much dependant on the standard of the player, if you can sing or hum in tune – then you can play the kazoo.
The kazoo is a member of the ‘Membranophone’ musical classification, which is in the percussion instruments, as the sound is created through a stretched membrane.
Kazoo comes with an instruction sheet, and it is presented in a tube shaped container which is perfect for keeping the instrument safe and sound.
Adjusting your kazoo:
- The membrane holder is threaded so it can be turned clockwise to tighten the membrane or counterclockwise to loosen.
- Start with the membrane holder just fingertip tight and, while humming into the kazoo, slightly tighten or loosen the holder until the loudest and cleanest sound is produced.
- Now your kazoo is adjusted for your voice.
