Special Order Critter Chaser Handmade Wooden Folk Kazoo Carolina Style
When most people hear the word kazoo they think of the plastic or metal mass manufactured kids instrument. Few think of the kazoo as a tool or as a utility device. My childhood was spent way out in the country. It was common to get a fox, racoon or possum in the hen house stealing eggs or walk up on a bobcat or black bear out in the woods. My dad taught me to always have my old homemade kazoo in my pocket for just such situations. You would be surprised how fast a kazoo can run off a critter in the hen house or on a path in the woods.
Here on the homestead in central Florida we have everything from black bear to deer, from turkey to bobcats are frequently seen here on the homestead and back in the woods where I often walk looking for kazoo wood and taking pictures of wildlife. I still carry my kazoo for critter control, just in case.
This is a Special Made To Order Kazoo that will be custom made for shipment with a traditional old fashioned beeswax finish and may take 7-10 days for shipping. I always ship on time, never ship late and most of the time ship early.
Being handmade each kazoo takes on it's own unique character and appearance. My kazoos are made with a removable resonator cap and brass screws for easy replacement of the resonator membrane.
Each of my kazoos come standard with a traditional beeswax finish. The option of a Butcher Block sealer finish is also available at a small additional cost. The Butcher Block sealer takes longer to apply than the traditional beeswax finish and may require 10-14 days for shipping. I apply three applications of Butcher Block to each kazoo and requires 24 hours between applications and 24 hours after last application before shipping. You can read about both the Butcher Block and traditional beeswax finish on my blog at:
