New Improved Doc Kazoo Handmade Kazoo High Performance Kazoo Membranes

Details


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;

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

For decades I have always loved the traditional design for my resonator membranes. They had the power and control through a full range. I could never find in a commercial resonator membrane that had both. It was either one or the other. So I decided to do what I normally do and make my own.

After dozens of failed ideas I finally discovered the mojo combination that works perfect in my kazoos. I have been installing them in all my kazoos for years now with 100% happy kazooist both in the home and on stage.

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.
