Adjusting calls to personal way of calling.

Postby on duck call » Sun Aug 28, 2005 7:27 am

Does anyone adjust they're calls when you get them? I am a decent caller and every new call I get I end up changing the reed(usually to bring it out farther). Sometimes I use moving tape and put it around the stopper. I know guys who did'nt like the call they got and once I changed the reed they loved it.

everybody blows a call just a little different. thats why i do the very same thing. short reeds are pretty easy to tunt to your type of calling. its well worth it.

If you don't, what kind of caller are you? I know you won't be very good. I like my calls high pitched, so I tune them that way.

I tune all my calls to my style. I could get a brand new one, and as soon as I get home with it I'll have it in pieces and be tuning it. Same way with duck calls, the minute I get home with it I start cutting new reeds for it and finding which sounds best.

I havnt tuned mine but had the owner of basin abomination adjust mine for me after he heard me call a couple of times. Some people like stiffer or thicker reeds or shorter vs longer. Just buy a couple of reeds and cut some up and try different combos and see what you like!

So what time are they suppose to show up?

Most manufacturers or makers will sell you more reeds.
I have seen the whole gut system on Goose calls at Sportsmans Wharehouse. about $9.00 which is about 3 times the amount he payed.

I dont change mine after I buy them. I dont buy them. :yes:
If I did buy calls I probably would. Like someone said earlier everyone calls different and has there own sound that they and the birds like to hear.

For extra reeds you're best bet is to contact the call maker and they can hook you up. Some will charge you, some will charge shipping, and there are even a few good guys out there that are happy to send em to you free of charge.
