I have 6 or 7 of Albert Pauls Calls. All of them were ordered after playing a call at Nationals or calling Albert and ordering them. All of the Calls I have received from Albert have met or exceeded what he had on his Table at Nationals. If the call does not meet your expectations when you receive it you are doing yourself and the Call Maker a disservice by not calling them and/or returning the call so that you get what you wanted! Albert Paul is a stand up guy who will do whatever it takes to insure that you get the call you are totally satisifed with!

From left to right: Albert Paul Henry Davis LE Call Holly/Ebony, Albert Paul Wildtalker LE Call Snakewod/Holly, Albert Paul Walnut/Maple Prestige Grade, Albert Paul Field Grade Poplar/Walnut, Albert Paul Prestige Grade Cherry/Maple, Charlie Parrish Parquet Box Call, Lamar Williams Poplar/Cedar Long Box, Irving Whitt 1800's Wormy Chestnut/Walnut, Mike Lapp Poplar/Walnut, Ed Terenfencko Poplar/Walnut, Bob Harwell Poplar/Walnut, Charlie Parrish Olive Wood/Walnut.

Tim, I do not doubt that and hopefully I did not indicate otherwise. My point is that I loved the sound of the call in my hand and therefore, it was the call I wanted. Having made a few box calls, I know how difficult and almost impossible it is to duplicate the sound from one call to the next. No 2 calls are going to sound exactly alike.

Albert Paul is one of the most reputable call makers out there and makes a fantastic call. But, I'm very particular about box calls and if I put my hands on one that has that "near perfect" sound (IMO), that's the particular call I want.

SS Custom calls and Black Falcon Custom Calls make a fine call.

David, I agree with you on finding a call that you like and wanting to buy it! I have had very good success playing a call that Albert had on the Table as a Demo and then placing an order. I have several of his calls and when they arrived, each and every call would make very good Turkey Talk without any Chalk on the Paddle. Once I adde the Chalk the Call came alive! Out of the 9 or 10 that I have purchased from Albert, I have only had to send one back. It was purchased for my Hunting Buddy and he wanted a slightly Higher Pitched Call. I called Albert, talked to him and explained what my Hunting Partner wanted and sent the Call Back. Albert made a new call and shipped it back to me in less than two weeks! My Hunting Partner is now satisifed and carries that Call on every Hunt!

IMO All Box Calls have a period of breaking in. It takes some time for the Paddle and the Side of the Call to wear in. The first thing that I look for in a Box Call after running it is to see if there are two crossed J's in the Chalk on the underside of the Lid. These J's should be in exactly the same place on both sides of the Lid. This tells me that the Lid and the Sides are symmetrical and the Curve of the Paddle is meeting the Curve Side of the Call at exactly the same point on both sides. I also play the call on both sides to insure there are two distinctly differents tones and play the Call with the Paddle towards me and away from me to insure that I can play the call in several different positions without effecting the Turkey Sounds that the call makes! If a Box Call will do all of this then I have found a Call that I like and will purchase one or more of them!

He was somewhat disappointed in the call he received.

The point in saying this is that call makers cherry pick calls to put into competitions. If they are serious about the competition, they will pick the very best out of the vast amounts they have made. So, that call that highly placed in the competition may have been one out of 20 or 50, or 100. This goes back to the "try before buy".

Yep, I like to try before I buy if I'm looking for a hunting call, they can vary to some degree no matter who makes them; with a collection call it doesn't matter as much.

If you don't use your own, you sure can't expect anyone else to.

I use my own as well; but I also want the best sound I can get in the ones I collect.
