Hi grizzly
I agree on the slate they seem to have the smooth mellow turkey sound, I have some nice glass calls that also sound good but slate is my favorite. I picked up a Zink slate call yesterday at the Eastern Outdoor show.  It has a aluminum sound board in it and it sounds great still mellow but maybe a little clearer but not sharp it is different.Hope the birds like it.

I prefer the pseudo ceramic/ Sla-Tek surface used by Knight & Hale for their Ol' Yeller and Pocket Puppy calls.

I've owned slate, glass and aluminum and believe that the Sla-Tek combines the best qualities of each with less maintenance. Slate hates moisture, glass requires constant conditioning and aluminum is partial to certain strikers.

The Sla-Tek can whisper like slate or scream like aluminum with any striker and to my ear produces a crisper cutt than any of them. You won't find a more versatile ten dollar turkey call than the Pup. My brother-in-law swears by his his as well and many a gobbler has been seduced 'tween the two of us.

I use an H.S. 360SL slate with hand-carved white oak & dogwood strikers.  Guys I hunt with can sometimes hear my calls & get on the radio to tell me they just heard a hen my direction, because nobody's call sounds that real. They think I'm kidding when I tell them it is Me on a slate.  As long as it keeps working on the turkeys, I'll stick to it.
 
I also use a K&H diaphragm the birds come to. I'm a loooong ways from a calling expert, but do well enough to hunt.

So far I like my slate best. I got an aluminum call but I don't think it sounds as good as the slate does. Have not tried glass or ceramic yet. But. It all goes by what a particular bird likes to hear I guess.
If it gobbles,runs on gas, or is married to you it will give you trouble!
