My soon-to-be brother-in-law has taken up tthe wonderful sport of goose-blastin' with me, and I am thinking about getting a good call for him for his Birthday as a gift from my son - his godson. I want to get him something good that he will be able to use and to keep. Trouble is, he is just starting out, and though I don't have the heart to tell him, he sounds like ****, even on a flute .:no: I would like to get him an acryllic single reed that is fairly user friendly for a beginner, as he has been using my old H-81. The obvious choice seems to be a SR-1, since I have one and it is insanely easy to blow for a SR call. I am open to other suggestions, however, as I don't want my affinity for Zinks to be the deciding factor - even though I am getting myself a new MoneyMaker :yes: .
