Tanner Hardy Highlights the Ins and Outs of Slayer’s Drake Slayer Double Reed Duck Call
Hey guys, Tanner Hardy here with Slayer Calls. Today we’re going to be looking at our flagship call, the Drake Slayer. This is a double reed call. We’re going to be pulling it apart, showing you the inside, making sure everybody knows how to clean their call, put it back together and make sure it’s running smooth. So we’ll get right into it.
Obviously, you’re going to take your barrel off. You’ll have two reeds in here. Just grab the reeds by the bottom. Don’t bend them up, pull them straight out, and then your wedge will come out with them. Set all that down. You can separate your reeds. Have your towel or whatever, wipe them off, make sure they’re clean, nothing sticky on them. Then when we go and put them back together, you’re always going to grab top and bottom and just apply a little bit of pressure. Whichever way it bends, you want to put the bend back down on your insert. That’s going to allow the reed to bend up. When you’re placing your reeds back on your insert, you want to make sure they’re as centered as possible over that tone channel. And you have a dimpled reed on top. It’s going to be just a little bit shorter. The dimple is always going to go down to allow a little bit of space in between those two reeds so they can both do their job. Once you get that, time to put your wedge back in. It slides right on top with both reeds touching the end of the insert. You slide it right in. Your call’s good to go. Put the barrel back on. Run it.
Thanks guys. That’s Tanner Hardy with Slayer Calls.
