Wood selection is critical when choosing a custom duck call. The softer the wood the softer the pitch. The harder the wood the louder the pitch. No matter which wood you choose you still get the ducky sound you need to really bring the birds in close. Click on the "Web Store" tab to see the wide variety of wood for calls we use as well as prices of Marsh Master Custom Calls. Each Marsh Master Custom Call is tuned one at a time. If we wouldn't take the call hunting then it doesn't get shipped. If you have a certain wood that you want a call made of let us know. If we don't have it we will do our best to get it.
The choice of most hunting professionals and higher end duck callers, the single reed duck call is great in terms of the sounds it can make. The range is extremely impressive. Here at Marsh Master Custom Calls we make a single reed that upon request can be tuned to be raspy.
As opposed to the single reed, the double reed does give up some range in terms of the sounds it can make. It is much easier to produce a quality quack out of a double reed call and that is the key reason so many people carry one on their lanyard. If your an experienced caller or a beginner be sure to check out our line of Swamp Suzie calls. They are specifically built in double reed and super easy to blow.
