Picture of Electric Kazoo

How to make an easy electric kazoo! I've tried several different ways to electrify a kazoo, all with mixed results, as the hardware inside the kazoo can dampen the sound or narrow the range in which the kazoo will 'buzz'. This method, I've found, results in a very dynamic, responsive noisemaker that all of your friends and neighbors will never get sick of!
