Summary

3D printable kazoo instrument, just add wax paper!

Just print, assemble the parts, add wax paper, and you're ready to hum.

Instructions

For full kazoo in 1 print use the Kazoo_All.STL file & make sure to use exterior support, for the valve to print properly.

Each part is also available in a separate file, only the valve needs support, the cap and body are fine to print without.

To play;
• Insert the valve into the main body
• Cut a small piece of wax paper (about 1" square) & place it on top of the valve
• Gently push the cap over the wax paper and onto the valve
• For best sound, hum into the larger end
• Enjoy!

Object height: 119mm
STP and STL formats available.

So, it doesn't work. When I blow through it it just sounds like I'm blowing through a tube. There's no kazoo sound at all. I have the valve stuck into the body, then a piece of wax paper on top of it, then the cap on that, and it's all snapped snugly together. What am I doing wrong?

This is a common misconception with the kazoo! Kazoos won't work by blowing into them - you'll actually have to hum into it (the larger end is the side you hum into)

I used foil, not wax paper, is it legal?

The valve needs to be printed with a brim.

Darn, I just bought one... Next one will be printed :-) Thanks for the model.
