    I haven't frequented this forum in years. Not because I don't like it. Just got out of most forums. I bought quite a few Lares calls between 2005-2010. The website doesn't exist and I'm not even sure if Mr. Lares is still cranking out calls or not. Who makes Lares today and are they the same calls? I have a clear acrylic set of his calls I purchased around 2008-2009 that include a checkered A5, Hybrid and T-1. Anyone educate me on value here?

    Brett Crowe is the current owner of Lares. He has been with Lares for many many years prior to purchasing the company. As for the calls, I have not heard Brett say that he changed the calls other than adding the MH. Brett is a super good person and I can not say enough good things about him and the calls.

    Thank you! What happened to Mr. Lares? He still around? Retired?

    He aged gracefully and passed the torch. I do hope he is enjoying his retirement

    Off their Facebook page. Facebook hasn't been updated in a year so who knows if the email is good. If all else fails call Upper Duck and see if they will get you in touch with them. They have some way of contacting them.
