jj lares vs hobo

I have blown the t-1 and own a prime meat. Very similar call from what I remember about the lares. I thought It was a little more crisp, or I guess a harder note would be the way to describe it. Of course the pm has a lot of hold built in, and are easy to whine so I can't really compare it there.

As for myself I preferred the hobo because it fits what I am accustomed to and my style of calling. I thought the t-1 was a little closer to an RNT persuasion and the hobo of course echo.

Not real similar IMHO. The Lares require a much "cleaner" air presentation (no voice/grunt). The Lares calls are much raspier, so this air presentation is what you need in order to blow them. The PM was always a fairly light call for me with an inconsistent top end. I like the Lares because they have the bark of a cutdown but the versatility of a regular duck call. Another plus of the Lares...no cork :thumbsup:

My advice to you would be to call the shop and talk with Bret or Joe. If you call from 8 AM-3 PM PST, you will most likely get Bret. if you call after, you will get Mr. Joe. They will help answer any questions for you and set you up with the right model/reed combination. If you call, tell them Ben Perez from NC sent ya :thumbsup:

Hope some of this helps. If you have any questions, feel free to shoot me a PM :thumbsup:

Gotta level with ya's... I bought a Hobo from Macks a few weeks ago and sent it back. I couldn't believe they tuned a call that badly and shipped it to a retailer. I have extra reeds so I tuned it myself and got it sounding better but still wasn't great as everyone claimed.

I'm thinking kent has had his head up his ass lately. I've tried contacting him many different times with no reply. I liked hobo calls before the customer service went to hell.

Didn't know that things were going downhill before I bought the call. It's definitely bad because that reed was nipped wayyy too short and one blow and you'd know it was way off. Sounded more like a kazoo.
