Getting more calls ready for a show next month and to have some on hand for inventory. These are neat little calls I make when I have the time. These are elm, mineral poplar and eastern red cedar. I didn’t show the strikers in the pics they are simply rectangles of cherry (usually) 3” x 1 1/2” x 1/2”.

These are nothing more than a small wooden box with one side slightly (3/8”) taller than the rest. Nothing inside you play them be rubbing the tall side against a small block of wood. The sound is made from the vibration of the wood on the tall side the rest is a sound chamber.

Basically a box 4” long 1 5/8” tall with an interior that is 1/2” wide 3 1/4”long and 1 1/4” deep. The tall side is 3/16” or less thick The top is partially covered with a thin piece of wood leaving a small opening for sound to come out. You tune it by carefully removing material from the tallest side and testing as you go.
