Collector's Edition 6" Memphis Belle Custom Performer Folk Kazoo

Details

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 has it's own unique character and appearance. Stock photographs are used in this listing. . Actual wood tones and grain patterns will be different in all of my kazoos.

This is a beautiful 6" performer quality folk kazoo with a red cedar body and black cherry/red cedar resonator cap. It has a beautiful dynamic range, lots of power and great control. This is a performer quality kazoo thatt is quite capable of performing with other acoustic instruments and vocals while maintaining it's own sound space easily. 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 and include a tin of Doc's Kazoo Wax to keep this kazoo all polished and a package of spare resonator membranes.. The unique bell shaped resonator cap defines this kazoo. This bell design gives this kazoo a unique sound that I can best describe as warm and mellow. It has superb dynamic range, great control and lots of visual "wow factor". Like the original Performer FatBoy Kazoo the Memphis Bell is designed to fit a Hohner Harmonica Neck Holder Model HH01 for hands free humming.

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE MAY BE ADDITIONAL CUSTOMS CHARGES AND HANDLING FEES DUE ON DELIVERY AS APPLIED BY THE DESTINATION COUNTRY POSTAL SERVICE.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

Several years ago I designed the Performer's FatBoy in collaboration with a performing musician out in California. Since then it has become my most popular kazoo with performing musicians literally around the world. Lots of kazoos have power, some have a nice dynamic range and a few even have great control. The Performer's FatBoy has it all and then some! It's got the "Wow Factor" that will grab the attention of any audience and have them scratching their heads trying to figure out exactly what it is. On stage performing or on the street busking the FatBoy truly takes the kazoo to a higher level of entertainment as a serious folk instrument.

Materials Used

Red cedar and black cherry woods, brass screws

More Info

Welcome to the Great Aswego Kazoo Factory ArtFire Shop where I offer a wide selection of the Doc Kazoo style of traditional and non traditional wooden folk kazoos. I offer both "made to order" and "ready made" kazoos. I try to keep a selection of "ready made" kazoos available for immediate shipping, however most orders are for "made to order" kazoos. Stock photographs are used for "Made To Order" kazoo listings. Being handmade each kazoo is unique. No two kazoos are ever exactly identical, no patterns are used. I siimply use the photographs in the kazoo listing as my model for the next kazoo of that design. From time to time I replace listing photographs with the photographs of the most recent kazoo made of that model. Each of my kazoos are a one of a kind primitive style folk instrument.

I am an independent folk artist with a passion for kazoo making and design. Although my focus is kazoo making from time to time I make a variety of other folk instruments. Collaboration instrument builds are welcome. If you have a design idea for your kazoo, let me know. I may be able to make it for you. You are under no obligation to buy anything. I make it and prepare a demonstration video. If you like it and want it you have first option to make the purchase. If not that is just fine. I will list the it as a "made to order" kazoo here in the ArtFire Shop. Many of my most popular kazoos started out as a collaboration.

In the case of multiple special order kazoos please email me for accurate handling time required to make your kazoo and have it ready for shipping. Single order kazoos are shipped no later than one week after placing your order. I always ship on time, never ship late and most of the time ship early.

Eventually your kazoo membrane will need replacing. How soon depends on how much you play your kazoo. Aswego Kazoos are designed to make replacement of the membrane an easy task most kazooist. However, if you don't care to tackle this project yourself just ship the kazoo back to me and I will replace the membrane for you. Did you attempt to replace the membrane yourself and accidently strip out a screw hole or overtighten a screw and crack a resonator cap? Don't fear, just ship the kazoo back to me and I will repair stripped screw holes or make a replacement resonator cap, FREE for as long as you own your kazoo. As long as the kazoo is not damaged from abuse it will never cost you to have repairs made. All shipping cost are at your expense as indicated below.

All you have to do is contact me via email and let me know about the problem. I will send you a return service authorization number and cost for me to ship your kazoo back to you. Then pack the kazoo and ship it to me.
