Precision tuned, then hand-finished and tuned, every one of our wooden calls are as unique as the tree that grew its material.
A common question asked is how the wood type changes the call’s sound. Here is a concise description from Sean:
Very natural sounding. Good balance from low to high end tone and balanced volume. The wood for these calls can vary from plain, just a little curl, to very curly. If you want a highly figured call, call the shop and talk to Sean about what material he has. There is a slight up-charge for hand-selected pieces, and usually a waiting list.
Tigerwood / Goncalo Alves –
Harder than Maple, so louder, but similar tone. This beautiful wood ranges from a mahogany color to chocolate and is often streaked with both. Great wood!
Burnt Hedge / Osage Orange –
Very hard North American wood. Bright sound and loud. Harder than Tigerwood and brighter sounding.
A true Rosewood, consequently, it is more dense than maple. It has oil in it like all Rosewoods. So, it is louder, deeper and brighter at the same time (because it’s density throws all of those tones “out” of the call). NOTE- Cocobolo is no longer imported into the USA, so if we have a Cocobolo call listed in stock, I lucked into a piece of wood that was already on the Continent! It is now priced accordingly.
Often called “Blonde Cocobolo”, see description above
In 1985, Sean Mann and his “Eastern Shoreman World Champion Goose Call” set standards for Realism, Reliability and Results in the field that have not been met by any other calls.
“The Eastern Shoreman World Champion Goose Call” is NOT A “FLUTE-TYPE” Call. These calls offer a spectrum of tone, volume and realism that is not attainable from any other call. Every call is hand tuned by World Goose Calling Champion of Champions Sean Mann. The most realistic goose call made, and the easiest to use!
Unlike “Flute Calls” the patented design of the Eastern Shoreman creates the full range of the Canada goose’s voice. From full “throaty” lows to bright “snappy” highs, these calls will do it all.
