I got in my ambrosia maple ceramic pot call in the mail on Monday from Stumpy and have to say it looks and sounds great, this is my first ceramic call other than the old Quaker Boy Trifecta I have that is slate, copper and ceramic and have to say this ceramic looks and sounds much better than the Quaker Boy ever did. The strikers are redhear and webwood and bacote and maple

I also got in my spalted maple scratch box with canary wood striker from Mike at Spring Creep Calls and it is also a very nice piece. It is different from other scratch boxes I have as it does not have the tall raised lip but after a few messages and a video he shared with me I am getting much better with it. Thanks for all the help Mike.

I am going to try to find a kid in the area that does not have much money and give them my old calls now that I have gotten into the custom stuff. I threw in the last picture just because I had mentioned the call.

Edit: Here are 3 soundfiles, first two are with the strikers he sent and last is with a Tulipwood Striker. I am not the greatest caller, so judge me not the call please. https://soundcloud.com/user-933394494/sets/ambrosia-maple-pot-call

noisy box call that seems to sound like a flock of juvenile hens pecking their way through a wheat field

Thank you, yes it is pretty slick. Neat finding another style of them, the first one I ever had had a piece of slate you struck it against on a piece of wood and the box had the classic lip. I will have to ask him where he gets that chalk from, I know you can't use chalkboard chalk but have not seen it in any other way except maybe sidewalk chalk. I would like to make a soundfile of it but I am not good enough with it yet so I haven't.

I will try to add a soundfile of Stumpy's tomorrow or Sunday, I have a friend coming over for homemade spaghetti tomorrow so time will be tight.

Thank you both, the guy that mentored me in archery really instilled in me the giving back gesture, I can't even begin to tell you how much archery equipment and a few gun things I have given to young ones and to those that are just starting in hunting or a new aspect of hunting/fishing, I truly believe that is how we nurture out future in the sports. This is why I was so grateful to Cut N Run when he gave me the long box, it was like it going full circle if that make any sense.

It sure does make sense! When I was younger and just started to learn about hunting, for me it was all about the kill. Now that I am older, I have learned it is more about the experience and the friendships that are forged. Hunting has blessed me in so many ways. Without it, I do believe I would be an empty vessel.

I understand that sentiment completely.

Thank you, I really like it, even if it did not play well I love the wood on it, I am glad it looks and plays well though! :D I really like both of them. Getting ready to add some sound files but I have to upload to Soundcloud first.
