Gk sticking like crazy

Postby holtspur » Fri Feb 14, 2014 9:14 am

Ok guys my call girl is sticking pretty bad. I know I probly put more spit in than I should, but I've only had one call stick this bad. I had heard how hard these were to stick. Any suggestions?

Hows the cork? Slap a fresh cork in there make sure she is snug. That be a good place to start.

Just put a new one in. What about the reed could that make a difference.

Is it airlocking or sticking? The reed would only affect it air locking, not sticking

No it is just sticking. It may just be the physics of how I blow the call and the way the tone board is; could be just as simple as the call doesn't suit me.

But are you sure spit it causing it to stick? If not, it is airlocking like Trevor said.

Are you sure you put the reed back in the right way?

Yes the reed is in right and it's not air locking. It just seems to accumulate moisture really easily. It sounds great until then.

Try keeping the tip of your tongue behind the bottom row of your teeth and cutting the note off with the middle part of your tongue. This will help from pushing spit into the call with the tip...it works for some :thumbsup:

That's how I run it. I never take the tip of my tongue off my bottom teeth.

Yep. Drink Coke or chocolate milk and notice how thick your spit gets...then drink water :thumbsup:

Can't take credit for coming up with that though.
