  • Being very close to this instrument as the trumpeting, bee-buzz like sound emanates from the outlet, is not a very pleasing experience as I find it to be rather excessively loud, to the point where I feel as if it can do some real damage to the eardrum
  • I reckon this may be one of the many reasons I do not really take kindly to this plastic trumpet, but I really love the collective atmosphere it adds to any match

      While this little uniquely South African plastic horn adds a spectacular atmosphere during sports games, as was witnessed extensively throughout the 2010 FIFA World Cup games, it has sparked somewhat of a mixed feeling in me towards its exploits.

      Noise Factor: Being very close to this instrument as the trumpeting, bee-buzz like sound emanates from the outlet, is not a very pleasing experience as I find it to be rather excessively loud, to the


      point where I feel as if it can do some real damage to the eardrum. Sitting on the other side of the vuvuzela though, is a totally different story as no such effects are felt. Another little factor I find quite flakey is that one doesn’t seem to suffer the effects of the noise when taking part in a crowd, blowing away altogether. It might be a psychological effect but either way, I ...

      • find it quite strange to say the least, and I was quite surprised to learn that there are a number of people who share the same sentiments as me.

        Variations: So far, I have seen the vuvuzela coming in many different colors, but have also spotted some smaller ones in size, relative to the conventional arm-length ones that are common, and although I would have liked to take part in some of the escapades

        concerned with this little noise maker, I could never get it right. One or two whole hearted attempts to produce that characteristic buzzing noise from the vuvuzela had me dismally failing, producing nothing more than a measly wind like, hissing sound. I reckon this may be one of the many reasons I do not really take kindly to this plastic trumpet, but I really love the collective atmosphere it adds to any match.
