Experiment...
« on: March 06, 2021, 09:20:35 PM »
Well 6 days of retirement and I got to wondering.  :confused:  Years ago I bought a piece of brass .005 thick (shim material) thought it'd make a cool reed. I took my latest favorite little call and pulled the reed out and tried a brass reed.  Absolutely screams! Looks cool as heck too... at 1st. Then I realized every time I dug my tooth in to do a ki-yi it took a little more bend not to mention it poked my lip thought it was going to bleed lol.  Fun failed attempt but it does look kinda cool. Call is buffalo horn barrel and hippo tooth ivory toneboard. My EDC call lol

Awesome looking call even if you had to go back to the original reed.

Nothing ventured nothing gained.  Are you still turning calls to sell?  Have a few friends who like the ones you made for me.
When they come for mine they better bring theirs

Thanks Hawk! I did end up putting a mylar reed back in. It was a fun experiment.  Other than the jabs it made to my lips. lol

That's it John, have to play around and try different things now and then. I have several calls on a shelf that I made during my works covid shut down.  Give me a day or so and I'll get some pics together.

LOL I see what ya did there Jim!

Glen if the brass would return to straight instead of taking a bend I'd give it a try.  10 min's of playing around and the reed was doing the "wave". I guess they're good for internal stuff but if you had it on a lanyard and just caught your coat wrong it'd bend and kink... I don't want to replace reeds the rest of my life. lol.

Brad, I'm not sure if your seeing them or not but people are private messaging you from the forums here and your email is blocking the notifications. I'm getting server alerts that your address is blocking the forum address. I wasnt sure how to let you know since your not accepting mail from us. lol :laf:

I was thinking like a JC reed Jim. Sorry I overlooked this.  I don’t have any idea why my email is blocking them. I’ll check it on web mail and see if I can change something there. Thanks Jim!

Jim do you have any advice?  I checked my "web mail" it wasn't in the spam folder... not sure where else to check.

No your profile has your bellsouth email address. Bellsouth is blocking them. They wont be in your spam folder, they are actually getting blocked.
It's nothing YOU did and I'm not sure why they are getting blocked, unless they think we are spamming you when the forum sends a notification.

Maybe if I send you an email?  If you think that might fix it shoot me your email address in a pm?
