    From left to right: yellow cedar burl, box elder burl, acrylic X2, curly maple, African blackwood, cocobolo

    A couple more of the first two - just picked these up and they’re pretty awesome:

    Ya Bill tuned mine before he sent. It sounds awesome don't get me wrong, very loud and all goose with nice crack. Just not easy to do moans or murmurs. Seems like got to give it all or nothing

    That's a pretty one for sure!

    As for using the call, you definitely need to have your hands right to provide the back pressure; play with closing your hands down a bit to provide more backpressure and help it to moan/murmur easier.

    Also, take an ultrafine sharpie and mark where the reed sits in the guts and where the guts (tone board and wedge) sit in the insert; that way you can always come back to Bill's tuning. And then you can slowly push the whole assembly, keeping it tuned as is, deeper into the insert to make it easier to get sound out of. Take it slow and go 1/32 of an inch at a time; a little goes a long way.
