Reed differences

Postby apg36820 » Mon Sep 30, 2013 8:22 pm

I am wanting to tune my duck calls this year for the first time. I have been looking at just getting some of the replacement reeds that both echo and RNT offer off their website. I am sure that the reed thickness makes a difference along with the overall length of the reed. I dont own a micrometer so i really have no way of being able to tell the overall thickness. Is their a standard reed that goes into most calls? going to a thicker reed I am assuming that would make the call use more air to get the reed to vibrate properly. Any help in this matter would be awesome. I am also trying to put together my own makeshift tuning kit for the future so any helpful items also help.

.10 is what the majority use for reeds.

I just got an RNT tuning kit and it has like 10 different sizes of reeds. I've tried 5 different ones in my Daisy Cutter and the .14 Quackstacker is my favorite so far. I was over blowing with the standard reed. The .14 lets me get loud and silly.

Call Echo and tell them you want some bulk un-cut reeds. Like .10 cents each.
