Special Order 4.75" Handmade Slim Gem Performer Folk Kazoo

Details

This is a Special Order Kazoo that may take 7-10 days for shipping. I always ship on time, never ship late and most times ship early. Stock photographs are used in this listing.

You can see and hear a demonstration of the Slim Gem Kazoo on my YouTube Channel at:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YpHsgtevcWI&feature=share&list=PL1277EC2B646F4440

The Slim Gem is 4.75" long with a red cedar body and resonator cap made from various hardwoods with a traditional beeswax finish. This is indeed the world's most versatile wooden kazoo. It can be played as a standard hand held kazoo, it can be held in your mouth while playing or you can put it in a standard Hohner Harmonica Neck Holder. With my personal Slim Gem and FatBoy kazoos I use a Hohner Model HH01 neck holder. It also has a brass eyelet on the vent end of the kazoo so you can attach it to a neck lanyard. This kazoo DOES NOT include a Hohner Harmonica Neck Holder HH01.

The Slim Gem is a powerful wooden folk kazoo with a beautiful dynamic range and great control throughout the range. Like all my kazoos this is a performer quality folk instrument that has not only great sound qualities but lots of visual "Wow Factor" that will immediately grab the attention of any audience either on stage performing or on the street busking.

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.

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

Once in a while I have some free time in the workshop to experiment with some new kazoo ideas. For some time I had been thinking of making a kazoo that could be held in a variety of ways. I had a FatBoy that would fit a harmonica neck holder, I had my Picker's Kazoos that could be held in the mouth and all of my kazoos could be hand held. I wanted a single kazoo that could he held all three ways. So I made the prototype, which is now my personal Slim Gem.

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.

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.
