Another "scratched" its way into my mail box...

Postby paboxcall » February 18th, 2011, 4:55 am

This time it came in a little brown box, not one of those red, white and blue boxes...but its what's insde that counts, right?
 
I came across this beauty very recently from Tom Crook, of Mississippi Scratch Box Turkey Calls.  He has been building these scratch boxes since 1989, and this is a great little scratcher for sure!
Its ambrosia maple, and #2 of 2 in this wood.  It has a mineral-stained poplar striker, and a straight cut sound board, versus a rounded sound board on many other scratch boxes I've seen.

It sounds terrific -- nice raspy yelp, perfect little clucks, and a sweet sounding purr. 
Clearly I've been bitten by the scratch box bug...gonna be a good spring...

I can't stop picking it up, running it, and staring at it -- its beautiful wood, complete with worm holes!

A very good looking call, don't you think?

Nice looking call, I like the pattern of the wood. Good luck this spring with it.
