Default MKW Malaysian Blackwood Trumpet

This is a call that Mike and I talked about making a year ago.Mike got this wood and told me about it and sent me pictures of the blank.I said that I would like a call out of the blank when it dried.Well a year goes by Mike and I talk all the time about turkey and turkey hunting and no mention of the call then I get a txt a week or so back and its a call turned.Mike tells me that that is my call.
The call is Malaysian Blackwood body with a Ivory mouth piece and cork lip stop.The reason I mention the lip stop is because Mike never did a cork one and being a PITA I asked for one.
I will say this with no resevation that this call is the easiest call I own and will out play any call that I own and I have some big name callmaker calls.If any one wants to hear this call message me and I will be glad to play it over the phone for you.

Great looking call Job. Mike makes some fine ones for sure. They are the easiest playing ones out there. All it takes is a whisper.

That's good to hear, might need to get my hands on one........ but you know by saying this publicly you will never be allowed to own another Cox trumpet.
