Please Listen -Re-Tuned Box Calls - Box Call Sound Clips
« on: June 18, 2017, 04:06:48 PM »
New--- 2nd sound clip below, I re-tuned calls #1 & #3....Hey guys, a little off-season fun here....So I made some box calls for my brothers and father and was messing with them out in the woods today, I recorded each of them and was curious what your opinion is of them. I tried to make the three sound very different, changing lids completely changes their tone too. I am a complete beginner at making box calls, and far from good at running them.

They are played in the following order.
1)Black Limba with Snakewood lid
2)Black Limba/Ebony/Mahogany-3 piece-(Soundboard is Black Limba) with Macassar Ebony lid
3)Teak/Ebony/Mahogany-3 piece-(Teak Soundboard) with Bloodwood lid (VERY raspy)

And here is the 2nd recording after trying to re-tune #1 & #3 a little higher pitched. They are played in the same order, please let me know what you think now....your favorite and how the re-tuning turned out.

It is always interesting to record calls in the woods as the nuances heard up close seem to disappear. While playing these calls in person I prefer #1, recorded I am not sure. In person #2 seemed REALLY bright, recorded sounds good, #3 sounds not as raspy in person as it does recorded. Then if I change the lids it all changes again....lol.....fun to build and tune them, even though I just don't like to hunt with them.

Interesting, it is not too difficult to brighten the others up a bit, I may do that and make another recording to see if we can hear the differences.

They all sound pretty dang good even before the tune up. I would have liked to have heard the yelping carry on a little longer so I could tell better,but I think I like number 3 after the tune up the best.

They are all in the hands of my brothers/dad now, no more testing...lol...I do have a tendency to call less than most while hunting, guess it transfers to these recordings too. I had fun messing with these, I will build some more when time permits, I did learn a lot so the next batch should be easier to build/tune.
