The Preston Pittman Tombstone Turkey Friction Pot Call (Flip Series) has calls on both sides of the pot. The large side is slate and the small side is aluminum. With a little practice you will be producing many tones and pitches in no time. Perfect for long distance or close calling. Sounds like a whole flock of gobblers. Beautiful mellow hen sound. Easy to use. Includes 1 Hardwood striker and 1 Waterproof striker with sandpaper.
Pot Calls/How to Use:
- Yelping – Make small circles 1/2 to 1 inch in length. Some people prefer making a J shape.
- Clucking – Pull the peg toward you about 1/8 to 1 inch with light pressure.
- Purring – Pull the peg toward you in a half-circle with light pressure.
- Cutting or Cackling – Pull the peg toward you 1/4 to 3/8 inch.
- To achieve proper sound, apply more pressure to peg.
- When sanding most hard surfaces, such as glass or crystal, crisscross sanding is preferred. Results from sanding should be similar to ### marks on the caller. This insures that the caller can call from any direction.
- When sanding soft surfaces with a grain, such as slate, sand with the grain only. When calling, pull the striker across the grain. Aluminum can be crisscross sanded, but remember, on slate and aluminum, use fine sand paper or scuff pad.
- Hold the pot only by the rim. For maximum volume, do not touch the bottom of the pot.
- To tone the volume down, experiment with touching the bottom of the pot or hold the pot in the palm of your hand.
- The closer to the edge of the pot that you hold the call, the higher the pitch will be. The closer you call to the middle of the pot, the deeper/coarser the sound will be.
- The greater the tilt of the peg, the coarser the sound will be.
- By using these tips, you can make any of Preston’s pot calls sound like a whole flock of birds, or easily change from one sound to another.
