For the final episode of Kazoo Fridays, I compare two classic tin kazoos, one from the UK and the other from the US. Both have been manufactured the same way for decades and both have cool vintage vibes. Which one do you like better?

Intro @ 0:00
Unboxing the US Kazoo @ 1:00
Unboxing the UK Kazoo @ 2:49
Sound Comparison @ 4:48
Summary @ 5:13

So true Doug. Thanks for watching the whole series. I got a special Sunday Song coming to round it out. :-)

Great conclusion to the series Kale! It’s apparent that in the Kazoo world the more things change, the more they remain the same! They seem to be timeless!

Thanks for tuning in each week BrianQ. It was a really fun series. And to think... I wasn't sure I could get 5 episodes out of this.

Kool, very informative!! My first two Kazoos when I was a kid was the original Clarke & a Hohner made in Germany. Amazingly, I still have my Woodstock I bought in the 80’s! That Woodstock is what the knock-offs have been trying to copy for decades, an American original for sure!! I’ll be looking forward to this series being catalogued into a playlist on your channel for later viewing :D
