Following on from my last post re the Fox Callers,I took the plunge and had a go at making my own.
For anyone who is interested, the parts are all freely available on Ebay and from Maplins. In case the BBC are watching, other providers are in existence !!!
My plan was to have a bash at making up a caller at a reasonable cost and in the process enjoy the creativity of it all.
The story so far.
1. On to Ebay and source one of these car novelty sound kits.
£12.68 postage paid
2. Visit Maplins for 8X AA batteries and battery holder and battery clip
I bought the mixed pack of batteries,as I needed others anyway, which was £9.99.
The battery clip and holder cost £2.68
3. Solder up the joints and away you go. The amp has a mic input which you attach an MP3 or phone to
and play the sounds through the amp. I was dubious as to the sound level but when i tried it I found it very loud and capable.
The whole lot goes into a small plastic tool box (15"X5") and its ready to go.
For a total outlay of less than £20, I think its been a worthwhile venture.
Hopefully a couple of pictures below.
All I need now is some decent weather and try it out.
As always, glad to hear what everyone thinks.
