Here's a batch of TT Cow Horn Tip calls in the works, that I started on the other night. I haven't done an 'online build' in a long time. It's quite taxing to do, so I figured I'd show a pictorial progress on these. Ya'll can watch them turn from horn to call. (What else is there better to do during the boring springtime? )

Here they are cut and rough drilled.



I'm off to sand these down on the belt sander and cut the toneboards on the sanding disk....

You use a bench belt sander correct? How wide is the belt?

Thanks Weasel.

Creasy, I use a belt sander for the rough sanding and shaping of the call, but I use the disk sander (on the side of the belt sander) for cutting the toneboard. The belt is 4" wide and the disk is 6". I finally bought a stationary sander a couple years ago. Prior to that, I built hundreds of calls on a little portable belt sander mounted upside down in a wood vice. I ruined 4 of them over the years.

I just got done with the next step. I took them to the band saw and cut where the toneboards will start. This gives me a positive spot for the sanding disk to start it's magic.

Note the pencil lines. That's where I mark where the bell hollow ends. I leave a 1/4 inch or so (I do this all by eye) to be drilled out later for the air channel and bell to meet.



Ok, off to toneboards and sanding.....

Tony

now this is interesting, i knew there was work involved but now i also get to see the magic. when most people talk about artists they arent thinking of anything like this; well i just wish i could explain it to them so they would understand. hey i'd be nuts then there would be that many more cleaning up all these beautiful calls.

I have the toneboards cut on the disk sander. I do all this by eye and feel, so some are not close to being right and will require a ton more work...some will turn out just right the first shot.



Off to cut air channels with the dremel....

Feel free to ask any questions, guys.

Stay tuned....Tony

Toney I see that some of the tips curves are longer than others does that determine the desgine of the sound board or do you go with what the curve gives you as far as the sound goes.

frshwtr, I'm glad you like watching this, because....

This one is your custom one. It's also the third one in the picture above. Notice that I sanded and buffed part of it to verify the requested color. How's the size?

Good question.

This batch has a mixture of cottontail and jackrabbit calls. The longer toneboards will have a longer air channel on them, thus a deeper sound. I'll cut the air channel to the length that feels right, then shorten the toneboard up to it. I'll show a picture of what I mean, when I get to that stage.

if your hand is anything like mine it will give me a good ahndfull, the color looks good too; you know its your judgment that amazes me the most. you just seem to know ahead what someone wants. keep in mind i'm not disappointed in the first call i got from you size finish or anything. i justed wanted another call different color than what i got.

I'm taking a short break to let the dremel bit cool down. It's starting to scorch the horns. Ooooohh....that smell!

I have air channels cut on half of them. One of them actually through to the bell, without any drilling needed. I held a piece of mylar on it and tested it for sound. Here it is: Initial sounds

It don't sound like much, but bare in mind that it was just a piece of horn a few minutes ago. This one is going to require a bit of sanding on the toneboard, drill out the exhaust port for proper backpressure. When I dremel out the bells, the volume will greatly increase.

Is the the channel under the reed' width and depth determine how much the reed can take before it sticks or is it the lenght of the reed .

This is great! If you look at the first photo it takes a great deal of imagination to get to the finished call.

Your call will finish out at 3.5" long and 1.5" bell. It'll be a loud sucker, but will have the pitch to drive those grey fox in your lap.

I don't know about being psychic on what call a person wants. I think it's simple. Get to know your customer, understand their experience level, calling style, targetted predators, calling terrain, etc.....then design them a call specific to their needs. I've been fortunate (married the right woman) to be able to call in a bunch of states and terrain, so it isn't that tough.

This call will be a good match for your 'ultra high' fox call that I built you. It'll be a raspy cottontail with high pitches and squeals and will be able to lay out a grey fox distress that'll echo the woods.

Ok...break time is over. Back to air channels.

Apparently you don't have one of my cow horn tip calls....they don't 'stick'.

It's the curvature of the toneboard that determines if a reed sticks or performs. Too flat...it'll stick. I've blown alot of open reeds that'll stick at the tip, due to a flat spot at the very tip. Since I spend a majority of my time on the tip of a call with my calling style, that's where I spend a bunch of time tuning, to ensure consistent curvature. Sometimes, tuning and fine sanding of the toneboards takes as long as the entire process of building the calls. But with out it....it's just a pretty piece of horn....not a call.

Ok...back to work!

does the length of the tone board determing what sound it will be like a shorter tone board a higher pitch or louder pitch??

guess i should of read all the posts there you answerd my question a couple posts ago

whats the bell hallow?? is that where the air channel under the reed flow into the bell itself??

This is great a guy that makes great calls is willing to share his gift and knowledge how with rest of us and to entertain us in the process of making a call.

i agree asmith and the call he made my brother (elkhorn) is one of the purest sounding howlers there is.. and for him to take time and walk through the steps of building a call and answering our questions is just unbelivable what a great man

Not angered at all ASmith. It was a good question...I was just having some fun with you. To me, a toneboard that sticks under pressure is like having a bolt action rifle that the bolt sticks and jams. Useless in the field.

Mikeymike, Yes the air channel length will determine the pitch. Basically, the sound is produced by the reed slapping the toneboard. The longer the reed...the more travel up and down, thus a lower sound frequency/pitch. The shorter a reed, the shorter the travel....thus, higher frequency. Good question. The barrel hollow is the end of the call that I bored out...the exhaust.


Ok, the air channels have been cut on these and drilled them to allow air all the way through. I tested them and 5 of them had to be taken back to the sander and do some work on the tip end.




Here's an example of a toneboard that is too flat and one too steep.



The top one is too flat. Very easy to blow, but locks up under pressure, due to not enough arc in the toneboard.

The bottom one can handle a ton of pressure, but due to being so steep, it is hard to blow.

Both of these are going to re-meet the sanding disk and get new toneboard arcs.

I'm recording a couple samples of cottontail -vs- jackrabbit ones now...

Ok, here is a recording of two of the calls. I'm just holding a piece of reed material on them. This is the same reed and I switch it to each call between the two sounds.

Cottontail -vs- Jackrabbit Recording

Ya'll can hear these sound files, correct?

You got it ASmith. There's a fine balance between too steep and too flat. Hit it right, and you get a toneboard that's easy to blow and can handle all the pressure you can put on it. Hit it even better, and you'll get rasp and harmonics (multiple pitches at the same time). To me, that's what makes one call seem to produce over others.

You're making me blush!

Believe me, my wife and 4 kids are watching the Idol Gives Back show without me...and their not real happy about it. I wanted to watch it, but really need to get these calls done.


Ok....Now that all the toneboards are working, it's time to shape the call on the belt sander. I'm going to give them all an ergonomic fit. You'll see a big difference in them. I've been calling in Texas, quite a few times, and got nickel size blood blisters on my lip from calling from sunset to sunrise for 4 to 7 nights straight. I've learned to design a toneboard that fits right in the mouth. It'll make them alot more comfortable, easier to control, and allow you to hold the call in your mouth, hands-free, while getting down on your scope.

Be right back (10 mins) with some more pictures....

Tony

does the thickness between the vertical cut on the front of the tone board and where the barrel (bore) start effect the sound ?

Yes. For a raw blasting sound, the shorter the distance the better. For a more mellow sound the longer the distrance. The length and bore size of that area will determine the majority of the backpressure and volume. I design most of my calls with high volume and raw blasting high pitched sound.

Ok, now they are all shaped and rough sanded. They are starting to look like calls now.



To answer Mikeymike, I shape them by eye for fit in the mouth. I try to give them a shape like those old Slow Poke chocolate suckers that would kind of melt into a taffy and shape to your mouth when you sucked on them. It just fits right.

Idol Gives Back must be over....wife is here. I'm going to stop building calls for tonight, as I need to work on my daughter's taxes. Heck, I've got to eat some dinner, still.

We'll finish this project tomorrow night. Hope ya'll come back.

Thanks guys.....Tony

What size cow horn do you usually start with? I've got a few small ones, but they're hollow nearly to the tip

Well, I'm done filing my daughter's taxes. That sure didn't take long.

To answer a few questions:

- My wife knows how I feel about Carrie Underwood. She mopped up my drool for me, when we seen Carrie in concert, last month. We sat 3 feet from her singing.

- These tips came from all different sized horns. Some where 6" long, others were 25" long. It's a solid tip that I look for, no matter what the horn length. If a horn is hollow to the very tip, I sell it to other howler builders that can use it for inserted toneboards. I made plenty of them in the past and that horn shape works great for it.

- Mark, I remember us talking about a cow horn tip call, but couldn't remember if you wanted cottontail or jackrabbit. One of these will be yours. PM me what type again.

I'm going to grab a bite to eat, take a shower, and go have a couple/three drinks at the karaoke bar with my wife.

I'll be back to finish these with ya'll tomorrow night.

Thanks...Tony

I missed this last night but I will be watching tonight. Thanks for the pictorial it's great to watch the calls being made.

Will these calls be sold after they are complete, if so I am interested in a jackrabbit tone call.

I'm right here guys. I'll need to eat dinner before we start.

What you guys watched, last night, was my mass machining of 13 calls. When going from machine to machine, it works out best to do a batch of them. We got all the rough work out of the way. But...we took a good break point, where we left off. Now comes the part where each call has to have personal attention to it. This where the customization of each call comes into play for it to earn a "TT" mark.

I will select 3 calls to finish tonight. The process will go much slower than last night. They will go from rough state to tuned, bored, sanded, polished, re-tuned, etc... I'll make sure I record plenty of before/during/after sound files, so that you can see what goes into each one. The rest of the batch will get worked on next week, as we are leaving to visit the parents in Illinois for the weekend.

We'll finish the following:

Frshwtr's call - raspy cottontail with high pitched squeals on the tip.
SDCoyotecaller's call - black colored jackrabbit with deep raspy squauls and good volume.
Lungpopper's call - red/white striped cottontail with raspy meduim/high pitch and screaming tip.

PS. 10 of the 13 are custom orders, I should have 3 available if they all make the mark.

Let me eat dinner and we'll start in 45-60 or so.

Thanks all.....Tony

We're going to have to play this by ear guys. We have tornado sirens going off like crazy. My wife is on storm watch outside, while I'm getting reeds cut for these calls.

I think it'd be best if we postpone this till Monday night. I need to go take care of the family, until this monster storm passes.

Keep your family safe, my friend!
Call makin' can wait.

{'Course, come to think of it ...I was making my pair of "Frenzy" Pup cow horn howlers last May while I listened to storm reporting on the radio. That was the night Kent's (seeinspots) home got destroyed by the tornado!}

BTW, how's the toneboard pouring coming along? (JK, I just felt like picking on ya, & being nosy)

Hey Tony,

I was just finally able to pop in here and see how things were going. We are having a nasty blizzard up here in SD. The lights keep going off and on, so I am trying to get on between power outages. I will take 5 feet of snow over a dang tornado anyday. Keep yourself and the family safe, and we will catch you on Monday night. Take care Tony.

SDCoyotecaller's call - black colored jackrabbit with deep raspy squauls and good volume.
Lungpopper's call - red/white striped cottontail with raspy meduim/high pitch and screaming tip.

PS. 10 of the 13 are custom orders, I should have 3 available if they all make the mark.





Well here's the 3 calls that we'll try to finish:

Call 1 - Frshwtr's call - raspy cottontail with high pitched squeals on the tip.

Call 2 - SDCoyotecaller's call - black colored jackrabbit with deep raspy squauls and good volume.

Call 3 - Lungpopper's call - red/white striped cottontail with raspy meduim/high pitch and screaming tip.



I took the dremel and cleaned up the toneboard, where the sanding disk can't reach. Note the bottom/left of each toneboard isn't square. That has to do with using a round sanding disk.

Next, I cut band grooves for the castration band with the dremel and cut reed for each call to begin the tuning process. In addition, I dremeled out the air channel better to make a smoother cleaner look and add volume.



Here is the recordings of each. We've got a bunch of work to do on these. Each one of them has a tip that sticks and not in tune with what each customer requests.

Call 1 Sound File

Call 2 Sound File

Call 3 Sound File

Next, I'll take each to an emery board and start sanding them back and forth to get the toneboard where it needs to be.

Be back....

Tony

Yes. Basically, I cut mylar strips and use a pencil to mark the airchannel and castration band grooves. Then I hand cut each reed, specifically for that call.

I went to work on the toneboards and have the flat spots out of the tips. I had to resand and entire different toneboard arc on Call 1, as I couldn't get the pitch to raise with just an emery board mods. All 3 calls are starting to show the signature "TT" rasp to them, but it's time to work on the bell end, before the fine tuning begins.



I'm going to bore out these raw bell ends, by hand with a dremel bit. I'm looking to clean them up, but more importantly, increase volume and give each call the proper back pressure.

Feel free to fire away quetions again guys.

Be right back....

My definition of proper backpressure, is giving the call the right amount of back pressure that'll give enough resisitance to produce rasp when blowing hard on the call. Too much pressure, and the call will be choked down from it's volume potential. Not enough pressure, and the call sounds like....well, a store bought elk call being passed off as a predator call.

As far as thinner bell on a distress call, it really doesn't make much of a difference on such a short barrelled call. I choose a wall thickness that's not heavy on the lanyard, but thick enough to resist generations of use.

I have the bells bored out, but two of them have separation rings in them (normal on horns). I had to fill them up with superglue and waiting for them to set, before testing them.

Good questions...

Tony

While the two of them are drying, I'm going to take Call 2 and start sanding it with the orbital sander. Again, I usually do these one at a time at this stage, so I'm trying to multi-task.

Do the separation rings go through the entire wall of the horn or are they not that deep?

And when you glue them do you clamp them or just fill with glue and let dry?

Each seperation ring is different, some don't run deep, some run really deep. In the case of Call 1, it ran very deep. I filled it 1/2 up with thin superglue, then let it set. I filled it the rest of the way up, then filled it with a powder to build a solid bridge. Then covered it again with more thin superglue. In it's case, the powder I used was hippo ivory dust. It'll harden like a rock and be very solid.




I use 10 mil mylar for everything. I had to doublecheck the packing slip on it, as it's been 5 years since I ordered it. I had an 18" x 20 foot roll. I'm glad you asked, because now I see my roll is only 2 feet or so. Time to order a bunch more.

I just finished sanding Call 2 with the orbital sander. Here is the progress.

150 Grit


220 Grit


400 Grit



Time to retest it and make final toneboard adjustments, before buffing.

Could you use the dust from sanding the cow horn to fill the seperation or does that not work as well?

I did some fine tuning on the toneboard. Part of building a custom call is getting to know your customer. This call is for Mark (SDCoyoteCaller). I know his calling style and the areas he's calling. He needs a call that's easy to blow, can handle a bunch of air, and has really good volume to reach the timbered draws that he calls to from the South Dakota grassy knolls.

Call 2 Sound Test Drive


Tell me what you think Mark. If you like it, I'll give it the "TT" engraving and start buffing.

I could use the horn dust (I have buckets of it) but the ivory is a much finer powder and really fills in good.

Tony, you hit the nail on the head as far as what I need in a call.

It sounds awesome!!! Nice and raspy, just the way I like it. It will be the perfect compliment to the super high pitched cottontail cowhorn tip I already have from you. You certainly delivered the goods on this baby. I think it's definately ready for the TT signature. Thanks alot, bud.

Buffing is complete on Call 2. I engraved my initials and filled them with white paint. Now it's time for a final buffing with a clean cotton rag and then 2 coats of lacquer.

Ten of the 13 are custom orders. I will have 3 available, but I don't know which ones yet. What you looking for cottontail or jackrabbit?

Looking good, Tony.

I was wondering if you try and avoid getting much laquer on the top part of the toneboard or doesn't it matter, as long as it is layed down nice and smooth. In other words, does putting laquer down on the toneboard affect the sound? I would think that this is the area that would need the most protection because of moisture, so I assume it doesn't matter. Thanks.

By far my favorite call is the cyanide mini. Love the sound and pitch, so a guess cottontail would be my answer, but would like a bit more volume. As you can see by my avatar my calling county is WIDE open.

I use a dremel with a dental burr.

Mark, I try not to get too much lacquer on the toneboard. I retest it once dry. About 50% of the time I have to use the emery board on it and remove the lacquer buildup. I then spray my fingertip and wipe it across the toneboard to lightly seal it. Unsealed horn....smells (and tastes) like sulfur when wet.

Bowhunt32, let me see what is available out of this batch. If it doesn't do what your looking for, I'll build you one.

Dustinyotes, I have you marked down for a jackrabbit already out of this batch.

Once this call is dry, I'll post the final pics and sound files. The other two calls are still drying and will have to wait for another night's session.

It's a stick of rouge, like a bar of soap. It's wax with a grit in it. The kind I have is made by Dremel. I bought it at Menards (a local home improvement store).

My sister-in-law is a dental hygienist and has been saving me dental burrs for the past 5-6 years. I have 200+ of them. It's amazing all the shapes and sizes. Most are very, very tiny...great for hair detail on engraving coyotes.

I'm pretty much done for tonight. I'm at a good breakpoint and can't rush the process. That's when quality suffers.

I'll keep progress pics and sound files of the other two calls.

You have no idea (well, maybe YOU do). I've been on a horn streak for the past few months and the smell and dust has pretty much permiated everything in my shop...and garage...and house...and neighborhood...

Man, I love being a Redneck!

You could patent the smell and make a cologne called "Redneck"... The tag-line would be something like..."Want women to leave you alone... Want to keep your neighbors from bugging you... then use Redneck"

Fantastic article...informative and interesting...made more so by reader comments. I especially enjoyed the evolution of the calls. The sound bites were especially illustrative. I'm curious, does anyone do the same thing with buffalo horn tips or is this even doable?

Tony, Do your production calls hit the harmonics that you mention above.

Great thread by the way. I just found it.

Ate the farm in the last week,some de-horning was done. I saved a few of the best in the pile. Not my thing, but they sure are impressive in the end. I could UPS these to someone who would use them. I'm in central Alberta. Phone works too. 780-405-6930 Darrel.
