Although I have made some mouth calls in the past, my experience has been quite limited. I too am interested in expanding my horizons in making calls. I know that Midwest and Pioneer are two companies that sell mouth call supplies, and I am sure there are probably others.. I have some vague ideas about how to build calls without a press, but I have yet to try it. If others here are interested in going through the learning process together, then we should start an information exchange on materials and techniques so that we shorten all of our learning curves. ...And perhaps some of the individuals on here that already are experienced mouth call makers can give us some info to get us headed in the right direction.
My initial confusion is in regards to the proper materials....frames, reed materials, and tapes...to buy. All of the sizes of frames, thicknesses of reed materials, different tape types, and so on, are a bit intimidating. Some direction and recommendations would be appreciated.
