Gas Mask Kazoo


Joel Veitch and his pals from Rathergood made “gigantic, nightmarish” kazoos out of gas masks.

I have acquired some old Soviet gas masks, sent over from Berlin. They are absolutely nightmarish, as you can see from this photo. The Soviets weren’t happy with simply making them functional, they made them look like something from depths of hell as well. What to do with these wonderful things? Well, I thought I’d have a crack at turning them into KAZOOS! Here is the video documenting my attempt.
