Favorite wood combination

Postby spitten and drummen » April 5th, 2013, 1:51 pm

With so many woods, domestic and exotic, if you could only choose one combination for your box,pots, and strikers what would it be. Not interested in the particular call or brand. Just want to know the wood combos. For instance I really like mahogany for boxes and pots with walnut lids and hickory strikers. So lets hear your favorite sounding wood combinations.

For box calls---Coffeewood over Walnut--Sassafras over Cedar
For pots---bronze glass-Cherry/Canary--slate-Cedar/Hickory--slate-Walnut/Teak--crystal-Blk Locust/Blackwood--
aluminum-Canary/Hickory--glass-Olive ST
For Strikers---Dymondwood--Walnut/Purpleheart--Walnut/Locust--Laminated Birch

That's what's in my vest

What about the exotic stuff. I never used really anything other than the domestics. I know there is some very pretty woods out there but I would rather have good tonal qualities than a pretty one that doesn't sound pure turkey. Just my thought

Ive got a cherry crystal pot call that rocks with a yellowheart striker. My box call is cherry with butternut it sounds pretty good to.
