Product Overview

I found this little vuvuzela in a supermarket and since it immediately got my son´s attention I bought it. The sound ? You know... vuvuzela.
Just a simple whistle, the younger brother of the real vuvuzelas, which can damage not only your hearing, but also a football tournament ! :-)
This little disaster produces single nasty high pitched tone, which only me and my son seem to like in our entire family. (... or our town ?)
Soon I realized, that this one note torturing is not all this catcall is capable of. So I started to "practise" and used it to produce quite wide palette of sounds - squeels, screams and creaks, which reminded me of various animals - so you can find seagulls, pigs, starling, cat, peacock and also unbelievable chicken patches inside. There also few patches reminiscent of broken, detuned, defective trumpets, cello, pad, strings, a bass patch, dandelion trumpet one and even a funeral band trying to get it right (Brokestra) !
Besides this experimental approach I soon found out, that in some two octave range, vuvuzela can sound like sort of an oriental instrument to my ears. I have adapted the idea of some unusual, African/Arabian whistle/pipe. And the name ? In high octaves it sounds just like buzzing of a gnat, a LOT of gnats, who
have lost their... shepherd... or vice versa ? Of course, the household of this shepherd is full of animals I mentioned earlier.
