Now some people don't understand. They think a blues player has to be worried, troubled to sing the blues. That's wrong. I'll put it this way; there's a doctor, he has medicine. He's never, sick, he ain't sick, but he has stuff for the sick people. So the blues player, he ain't worried and bothered, but he's got something for the worried people. Doctor . . . you can see his medicine, you can see his patient. Blues . . . you can't see the music you can't see the patient because it's soul. So I works on the soul, and the doctor works on the body - Roosevelt Sykes, spoken on Smithsonian/Folkways Classic Blues anthology

A little too new-agey for me, Slack, tho' very cool looking. But maybe a single string with a tractor gas tank? Personally tho', I like the jug on a rack, leaving my hands free to play guitar or washboard. We've already got a harp and a kazoo player.-G-

All for now.

Oops, I wasn't thinking - it would be a competitor for the jug!  -- forget it and you are right -- a little too new agey - ha! My cigar box sensibility go the better of me. ;)

Amazing construction, for sure, reminds me of the hearses those folks in Afrika make  out of their cars, to represent what they like in life, like a huge cigar, or a giant bottle of Coca-Cola, etc.

Never heard of or seen these guys. Seems they have a fiddler off to the R, and the basist doubles on the kazoo-on-a-rack...I am willing to bet his kazoo is a new one with less buzz than the ones Wax getes from his authentic source  :P

Love and an itchey nose from the kazoo...
