I have around 8 scratch boxes and have played maybe 12 others at shows.  To me the all cedar scratcher by Beard Hunter Calls sounds the best with realistic yelps.  Not real fancy but great sound!!

I really like that Tim, thanks for sharing.  Curious how that Mulberry sounds.

Shadetree, Fetters, SS, and No Bull are all top notch quality, tone and playability.

I have a Tim Fralick Custom Calls Sumac and Osage Orange Mighty Hen scratch box I like quite a bit, sounds wonderful. Nice guy to talk with as well. Here he is playing one made with the same materials as mine. https://www.facebook.com/timfralickcustomcalls1/videos/2068641933394776/

Jeff White, SS custom calls and Chris Brumfiel are some that I like. I especially like Brumfiel’s strikers

Wendell Jolley butternut or mulberry or osage are all great little scratchers and Wendell is a just plain nice guy.
You wouldn't go wrong with Jeff White. I like his bloodwood with a sycamore soundboard and his maple with a mahogany soundboard is a really nice one...
