I was looking for the same thing a while back and ended up with D. Marlin Watkins call. I am happy with it.

I doubt you will find a call that everyone will agree on. These members posted many good ones. Do some research on each call that was mentioned and come to your own conclusions. It will then be YOUR choice.

For the money, you cant beat Bob Harwell's box. I know he aint much to look at, but for some reason, women and hens find him irrestible :TooFunny:
Marlin Watkins also makes a fine box as well

The best sounding call is the one that sounds "BEST" to you.

That is a true statement for the buyer and the call maker.  I like Mike Lapp, No Bull and Twisting Creek, Ed Terefencko, Scott Basehore to name a few.  The key is to run some and listen for the sound of the hen that your use to hearing in the woods.

From my experience and I've played every call makers calls listed in this thread with the exception Mr. Cox and alot of call makers not mentioned including some champions at nationals.  When considering paddle calls or short boxes Lamar Williams Steve Mann and Darrin Dawkins are in league of their own.

All of these answers are right. Many fine callmakers listed here. A lot is going to depend on how well the one doing the playing can play a box call too. It has been my observation that you have to spend some time playing one in order to get everything out of it. To find the little sweet low key hen talk.

I agree, The callers experience in playing a call is important..But... with that said, A very wise Callmaker told me that if you pick up a call and have to manipulate it a certain way to get the sound you want then you have eliminated half of the people that can play the call...I have played lots of calls from alot of Callmakers...Champions and others, besides sound, Ease of play is very important, Just my opinion, Good luck,,lots of great choices out there.
