One old favourite instrument that’s always been around is the kazoo. That’s because anyone can play one – if you can hum, you can kazoo! As well as being a favourite instrument for one-man-band buskers with a kazoo stuck in the old harmonica harness, it’s also been involved on a ground breaking piece of psychedelic music.

Don’t believe me? OK, check out the intro to the great 60’s song, ‘Crosstown Traffic’ – none other than
Jimi Hendrix there blasting out the riff on guitar and kazoo! Minimal cost, maximum fun!
And if it was good enough for Jimi...

So grab a Trophy kazoo, whether you get super-creative like Jimi or just have a laugh going,
‘toot toot te toot toot’!
