Information Regarding Funny Sounds

November 23rd, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Kazoos are one of the easiest instruments to play; even the design is fairly simple. It creates a buzzing sound when a person hums into it. There is nothing on this instrument that will help to change the pitch or the sound; this is done by the person humming into it. As the person changes their humming, the sound through the kazoo will be altered as well. Some people can find it difficult to play this instrument properly because they take the instruction to hum too literally. To get the best sound out of the kazoo, the person has to more or less speak into the instrument, which makes a harder vocalization and makes a stronger sound that will work through the kazoo.

This simple little instrument that is a popular toy for many young children has a long history. Many people are unaware of the kazoo’s origins. Instruments similar to the kazoo originated from Africa, where it was used for hundreds of years for many different purposes. Not only were the instruments used in many rituals and ceremonies, they were also used when hunting. Different ones would mask the sound of someone’s voice and some would have the ability to imitate different animals who they were trying to hunt.
