Many customers request wood calls for their mellowness and natural tone. This wood mallard call equals in quality of sound and appearance. The barrel is made out of persimmon wood. It is a light blond wood that has slight black specks of spalting adding to its visual appeal. Persimmon is an American wood that is known for its hardness. Historically many duck call makers used persimmon and this is a nod to that historic past. The insert is made with African Blackwood, which is a dense wood, that is highly regarded for its tonal qualities. The only engraving is our company name on the bottom flat surface of the barrel - this is to let the beauty of the natural wood stand out.
Please consider these reed/insert explanations to help in choosing your preferred call selection:
- Perfect Timber - Single reed with smaller exhaust hole (considered a softer call but still plenty loud)
- Open Water - Single reed with larger exhaust hole (a louder volume call)
- T-Rex - Double reed with a plastic and metal reed and a timber exhaust hole. The vibration of the metal reed adds a ducky raspy sound and the timber exhaust is a softer style call.
- World's Best Double Reed - Double reed with two mylar reeds but with an open water exhaust. Using an open water exhaust adds volume and compliments the ease of use of a traditional double reed.
