New Improved Doc Kazoo Handmade Kazoo High Performance Kazoo Membranes
This listing is for one pack of six (6) Doc Kazoo High Performance Resonator Membranes. As my membranes are hand made and not individually tested it is possible to receive one that is flat or just doesn't sound right. I always include two extra membranes in each package just in case. My membranes should fit most standard kazoos however they are designed specifically for my kazoos.
This is a new improved design. In the past my membranes were round and fit centered over the resonator hole in your kazoo. This new design is must be trimmed to fit your kazoo leaving a nice wide paper frame around plastic. In this new membrane design the plastic area is 1/16" larger diameter than the kazoo resonator hole. When installing the new design membrane center the kazoo hole in the middle of the plastic, I will be posting a demo video on this shortly.
Over the years I have developed a contemporary style resonator membrane with a paper border and plastic membrane. In the past I used the old time method with a strip of vibrating material. Exactly the same way we did with wax paper when I was a kid. I wanted to find a combination of materials that provided the best dynamic range, power and control for all of my kazoos. Something that I have never found in a commercial resonator membranes made in China. After testing a bunch of different materials I selected a combination that I am totally pleased with. It took a lot of experimenting with different materials to discover the best combination for my wooden folk kazoos. With my Performer Resonator Membranes in an Aswego Kazoo you got it all! A beautiful dynamic range, lots of power and great control when you really put the power to it! It is also important that my resonator membranes are durable. Nothing worse than blowing out a membrane in the middle of a performance. My resonator membranes deliver a perfect combination of strength and sound! Casual home kazooist may never need to replace the original membrane and performing musicians more often. I change mine once or twice a year or when needed.
Each of my kazoos come with a package of spare Resonator Membranes.
Why purchase when you can easily make your own Doc Kazoo Style Resonator Membranes. Here is a video of how to make them;
