The tour was brief but fun and informative, great for the young and young at heart, music teachers, and musicians. It is a great way to support an American based business. The plastic kazoos and their attachments are high quality plastic sturdily built. There's also a t shirt company in the same storefront

My wife and I who are fifty something took The Kazoo Factory Tour and loved it. This is one great roadside attraction that any music lover can't miss! Melody was an excellent tour guide. The visit included a kazoo exhibit, audiovisual presentation, demonstration of the various types of kazoos and a tour of the plant. At the end of the... More

We took a side trip from Hilton Head Island to Beaufort SC to visit The Kazoo Factory. Our tour leader, Tara, was the best. She was knowledgeable about the subject of kazoos and other hummable instruments, also, she is a virtuoso kazoo player. The finale was when we made our own kazoos and entertained each other on the trip back... More

Been coming to Beaufort area for 19 years. Saw this online as a neat thing to do. Melody and her "shadow" trainee treated us to a fun and organized tour. Includes short self tour, short film on the history of kazoos, a demonstration be Melody, a factory tour with explanations, and then it was capped off by a "make your... More

Thanks to Melody for our tour of Kazoobie Kazoos. It started with a cute film presentation of the history of kazoos (starring a kazoo too!), then a browse through the museum (just a few cabinets of vintage kazoos). I was fascinated during the factory tour. So low-tech but they manage to make about 500 a day. Then the highlight of... More

As an HR Manager responsible for coordinating staff events, I can say that this was the most unique and intriguing events I've planned. This was planned as a surprise for our leadership team. Once we arrived in the parking lot I could tell the staff were not only confused but they looked a bit disappointed. We entered the building and... More

How about Kazoos, Wazoos, Kazoobles, and even Wazoobles? You may never have heard of them, but you'll probably never forget them once you visit and take the factory tour! Museum, Gift Shop, and even make your own to kazoo to take home... Been living in Beaufort for a while, and finally when company came we visited the Kazoo Factory. It's... More

A fun and unique place to visit. It's a small venue with very friendly staff. Melody gave our tour, and she is very knowledgeable about the process of making a kazoo. If you're in the area, this is worth a quick visit to learn about the first percussion instrument invented in America.
