Chainsaw?

Postby GuitarPlayer » Fri Oct 11, 2013 1:55 pm

I have a duck call that I've had for a long time. I don't remember the brand, my dad bought it at Wal-Mart cuz I always wanted to blow his calls and it was cheap. So I found it and stuck it on an extra spot in my lanyard. It's very quiet which I love, but it sounds very nasally. Almost like a gadwall mixed with a chainsaw :no: is there any way to change that? It's a wooden call with the plastic soundboard and wedge and two reeds held in place with an aluminum (I think, could be brass) ring.

Sure it isnt a diver call?

Rip out the insert and start tuning. Plenty of videos on youtube showing how to tune a call.

I'm pretty sure it's not but I could be wrong. I've tried to tune it multiple times but can't get the nasal tones out. I'm not sure what to do, perhaps the reeds are shot?

High pitched? That usually too short/narrow of a reed. Can you raise the reed at all on the toneboard? that should lower the pitch a bit.

It's one of these isn't it?? A buddy has one and it isn't a bad call when tuned. Send it to me and I will tune it for you :thumbsup:

It's similar actually, according to my quick research it's a Lohman duck master?
