Talk about an original custom call! This call is an “Original Turkey Coffin” from Baker Boys Turkey Calls. The Baker Boys Original Turkey Coffin – it’s a friction call that looks like a box call, but the striking surface is on the back and you use a striker like you would use on a pot call! You just run the striker in a straight line instead of a circular motion like you would on a traditional pot. As you work the call you can turn it in the direction you want to sound to carry, as the open end of the call acts as a speaker.
The surface of the copper needs to be sanded as often as needed! The call will not work if you touch the copper with your fingers because the oils in your hand will kill the sound. If this happens all you have to do is sand the calls surface with 220 or finer sandpaper or emery cloth. This call will make every turkey sound that you want out of a call! You can use soft calling by applying soft pressure on the call, and a louder sound as you add pressure – the harder you push down on the surface the louder it gets! The striker on this call is mounted with two holes on the call so it is always with the call in one package! This call is made of redwood and the striker is made of teak! This call was invented by my Dad Stanley Baker and is of his craftsmanship – a handmade and turned custom call! This call comes in many surfaces such as Copper, Glass, Aluminum, Slate, and Acrylic!

This is really a neat and fun call to work with. The key is to use the call like they do in the video below. By holding the striker high, you can get a nice purr and cluck. You can even place your hand over the box to muffle the sound producing soft calls! As with any copper call, you’ll need to use a scotch-brite pad to clean the copper that accumulates on the end of the striker.
