I received a new call from Paul Heasley, Phil's brother.  I do not have a pic of it yet but it is only about 3/8 inch thick, about 3 inches wide and about 4 inches long.  It fits in a shirt pocket.  It is a striker operated call with a strip of slate inset on one side and a strip of copper on the other side.  The two sides are separated by about 1/4 inch making a sound chamber in the middle.  Mine is cherry wood and a hardwood striker.  I do not have any copper calls and this call makes a real raspy call on the slate and a very clear higher pitched call on the copper side.   He makes them from several wood types and a choice of about 4 different call strips and even 4 different strikers.  From my playing around with it I believe it has a really good sound.  Methinks longbeards will be down this spring.  Is it turkey season yet.

Make sure you have some scotchbrite pads in your vest. Copper and Aluminum both need to be touched up frequently to keep their tone. In fact aluminum and copper will loose tone even if you aren't using them. They oxidize and you really can't prevent it. Glass and Slate are more forgiving but they still need a touch up as soon as they start to get slick.

Thanks for the reminder Leo this call came with both  scotch brite and  sand paper and the scotch brite will absolutely be along on the hunt.
