At Epic Fireworks, we firmly believe that we sell the very best range of unusual sounding fireworks. We pride ourselves on our seldom seen, or heard, sonic, hummer, two-stage whistle, triple whistle, howling serpent and screecher effects and have always gone to great lengths, and expense, to provide fireworks which sound both exciting and diverse.

Here we list our top 10 unusual sounding barrages and these are guaranteed to add depth, variety and fun to any firework display!

Fire Snake 100 Shot - Noise Rating 7/10 - 20 Seconds - Cost £4.98 - Opening our top 10 countdown is Fire Snake, a 100 shot Saturn missile battery which produces a very distinctive, and unmistakable, loud whistling cry. The frantic pace at which the 'pen lid' comets fire emits a blanket of noise, and the cacophony certainly makes a huge statement.


Laser Fire 36 Shot - Noise Rating 4/10 - 32 Seconds - Cost £4.98 - Like Fire Snake, Laser Fire also costs less than £5 and for its low purchase price offers phenomenal value. Dazzling visual effects aside, amusing sonic sound effects resonate before spinning whistling tails wriggle upwards and shriek as they tumble.

Mad Moth 25 Shot - Noise Rating 7/10 - 40 Seconds - Cost £9.98 - Mad Moth is a golden oldie which packs a huge array of mixed effects. During a diverse performance, crackling mine lifts pop and rattle before a flurry of rising balls squeal and whine in a surreal zipping sequence.

Mighty Mouse 105 Shot - Noise Rating 4/10 - 25 Seconds - Cost £17.76 - Mighty Mouse is tranquil at first, however crackling comets provide sounds reminiscent of a burning wood fire before an army of screeching fish whistle and squeak 7 wide. These joyful sound effects continue throughout the fireworks entire duration and are always a firm favourite.

Shrill Witch 25 Shot - Noise Rating 8/10 - 36 Seconds - Cost £9.98 - Shrill Witch is another classic and provides a rarer sonic sound effect which pulsates in rhythm and emits a high-pitched wheezing. Not quite a hummer nor a whistle, the sound is truly unique and the warbling constantly changes dependent on how fast the shots rotate once fired.

Whistle Mix Pop 27 Shot - Noise Rating 5/10 - 26 Seconds - Cost £19.99 - Whistle Mix Pop is an absolute treat on the eyes and ears and begins with a swarm of comical hummers which vent whizzing and whirring noises. Next, a flurry of sonic sound effects radiate chirpy rotary notes and then ear-piercing whistling serpents bellow an almighty wail which will be heard far and wide. This small barrage is the gift that keeps giving and finally, delayed crackle effects give a shower of fierce fizzing noises to give a fully-rounded and hugely varied show.


Heavy Duty 64 Shot - Noise Rating 8/10 - 70 Seconds - Cost £29.99 - Just like Whistle Mix Pop, this fantastic Heavy Duty barrage also provides a vast library of unusual melodies. Firstly, whistling tails shriek and then loudly pop to clapping time rain before a change of tone where whistling noises become fiercer and fiery sounding. Next, rare two-stage whistles expel very sharp, piercing toots and this pandemonium of noise continues to blare and hiss until the fireworks finale.


Triple Whistle 25 Shot - Noise Rating 7/10 - 30 Seconds - Cost £9.98 - Triple Whistle does just that and three-stage whistling serpents reach dazzling heights whilst changing in pitch as they screech upwards. The serpents appear to scream, pause for breath then continue to wail and this effect is absolutely enchanting.

Humming Hornets 28 Shot - Noise Rating 6/10 - 30 Seconds - Cost £19.99 - If you are after the most joyful sounding firework, then this is it! Humming Hornets never fails to raise a smile and guests will be grinning from ear to ear as hilarious hummers zip and dart across the sky whilst delightfully squealing and whistling as they do. This refreshing firework is guaranteed to be a huge hit with all ages.

Howling Wolves 30 Shot - Noise Rating 9/10 - 45 Seconds - Cost £34.98 - So here we are, our top spot, and Howling Wolves sounds like no other firework before it. As its name suggests, Howling Wolves gives a deep howling roar and the newly developed effect is utterly blood-curdling. An outcry of whistling lets off a sustained, doleful cry and, regardless of which fireworks you light, we guarantee that this will be amongst the most memorable.
