also try forcing more air from your gut so you almost grunt in the call to make it more raspy!

I definatly recommend the Duck Commander series of calls. Pretty much any of them are raspy enough. The Mule and the Classic Commander are good ones. If your looking for REAL raspy there is one called Ole' Raspy or somethin like that. And its name says it all.

ADH13 I have blown Haydel calls for about 20 years and they are very ducky especially the DR-85, and very easy to adjust. On the single quacks or lownsome hen I do put a little voice in it , but for the welcomes and greetings etc. I don't. Don't be afraid of taking them apart to adjust them, just take note of the position of the reeds so you can get it back the way it was. To get a raspier sound make the reeds a little longer and to get a higher pitch shorten them abit. However if that dosn't work for you, the Duck Commander cut down reacher is as raspy as you could want ,but does lack in volume compared to the Haydel. A good combo would be the DR-85 and a Cut down reacher on your lanyard. Over the years I have had about 20 Haydel calls and I think I adjusted them all to get the sounds I want. : Good Luck
I'm not as good as I once was, but I'm as good once as I ever was.

also take into consideration that just like people, individual ducks sound different. not all of them are raspy, nor do you have to sound raspy to call ducks, some people prefer whinny, and clean and that can call ducks just as well, keep an open mind in duck calling.

Yes and it can change from day to day. cleaner sounds may work one day and raspy nasty stuff may work better the next. Or even from one group of birds to the next. Those Old Haydels calls have a good reputation you may even consider calling over to Haydels and seeing what Rod says about your call and how to fix it....

One of the ladies I was teaching recently had one of those DR-85s they are nasty little buggars.

DR-85...AWSOME... under $15. I gotta Flextone Guide Series that is a raspier, but, louder call as well, under $30. For all out snot...look for somthin' wooden and old...Mallardtone, Faulks, Folies etc. I used ta have an old rubber Olt's key hole that sounded awsome :thumbsup: It will eventally all boil down to wich one the dux like :yes: :yes: :yes:

Aarizonaduckhunter13, my question to u would be are you adding voice to the call, double reeds already come with some voice, primos makes an excellent training video if you need to brush up on ur skills. Video is called "mastering the art" ENJOY
