There are a huge number of musical instruments in the world, the existence of many people do not even know. One of them is dedicated to National Kazoo Day. With it, you can return to childhood for a few moments, arrange a real concert for your neighbors, or try to really master the art.
For the first time, a musical instrument was presented at a fair held in the state of Georgia in 1852. It was made by watchmaker Thaddeus von Clegg. Kazu is a small pipe that even a child can play. She failed to attract enough attention, but sixty years later the decision was made to start commercial production. For the manufacture mainly used silver.
The kazu is a wind instrument, but there are no keys on it. Music is obtained by “buzzing”. In simplicity, it resembles the very first devices. The shape resembles a cylinder made of wood or metal. When transmitting sound, it is somewhat transformed, and the musician’s voice is transformed.
