The Tube Call or Diaphragm Call is a unique and super-realistic style of call.
It uses a sheet of rubber, stretched across the small end of what looks a little like a little bugle, instead of a reed. The call is operated by putting your lower lip against the edge of the rubber piece and blowing air between your lip and the rubber piece. It is a bit like “squealing” a balloon. Once you master it, you will be amazed by the goose sounds that you can make with a tube call.
In 1979 Harold Knight won the World Goose Calling Championship using a Tube Call. He was the first person to do so.
David Coleman got a tube call from Harold in 1979 and learned to use it, won the World Goose Calling Championship in 1982 and continued to improve his tube calling skills to a level that nobody has ever matched to date.
In the many years since 1982, David made many improvements to the original tube call design, and put them into his own original version that far surpasses the performance of the older design. “Proof is always in the putting” David used his new design to win the 2015, 2016 and 2017 World Live Goose Calling Championships!
Today I am proud to make the David Coleman tube call right here on the Shore!
The calls are available from us in Maple, Rosewood, or Black Delrin.
Each call is supplied to you with a variety of diaphragms in different “weights” and an extra band, so that you can experiment and find the one that is right for you. We will have replacement diaphragms up here shortly. Thanks!
