Cork vs Rubber

When do you use one over the other? It seems as though cork gives a better tone over rubber. Thoughts?

Rubber will make the call flatter sounding.

I switch all of my calls to Santoprene wedges with zero tone change to my ears. They might change tone in some instances but I have not seen or heard it yet!

Kurt,
Where do you get santoprene? I've checked google and I get the industrial applications.

Just made an order with them on Friday. Thought I was just ordering plain old rubber. Did not know I was ordering Santoprene.

That's very true. I had an A5. Did not care for it. I've tried the T1 and thought it sounded decent. The Hybrid sound good for sure.

I have never messed with the A-5. The T-1 and Hybrid do the job!

Bingo,done the same years ago,no need to change out corks every week,tone stays the same with the rubber wedge.
Never understood the cork verses rubber wedge debate over the sound of said call sounding flat with the rubber over cork,but hey use what works for you! :welcome:

I agree. I'm a big fan of Committed Custom Calls. They all use rubber wedges and are definitely not flat.
