What is the difference between a single reed and double reed duck call?

A: Double reed calls tend to be more ducky. They are geared toward the novice caller and are more forgiving to air pressure with slightly less range. Single reed calls are more versatile with a greater range. They geared toward intermediate-advanced caller and are limitless on calling sounds depending on the caller’s ability to change air presentation.

How do I tune a Single reed duck call?

A:  When retuning a call you should first replace the cork and test your calls performance and sound. Corks typically go bad more often than a call’s reed. Next set your old reed aside for reference and start with a new reed. Only remove about 1/64 of an inch at a time and dog ear the front corners of the reed at a 45-60 degree angle. The reed has the greatest impact on the performance of your call. A long reed increases the volume, produces a lower tone, requires more air pressure and reduces the call’s responsiveness. A shortened reed reduces volume, produces a higher tone, requires less air pressure and increases the call’s responsiveness. Slowly and gently push the cork in place with a small screwdriver or similar object. When replacing the cork, make sure the reed is seeded to very back of the J-Slot. You may need to repeat these steps several times to fine tune the call to your calling style.
