Great video. For anyone who hasn't tried the Phelps diaphrams, I highly recommend them. I've tried everyone under the sun. My goto has always been the raging bull by bugling bull game calls. It's a great call, but a buddy just turned me on to the Phelps amp series. Wow. They produce excellent sound, very easy to blow, and the best feature, they hold up well. I always figured I can get about 100 good bugles out of my raging bull before the latex stretches and I lose volume. With the amp calls, I have been blowing the hell out of them, and they all still sound like new. For me, I also get more range of sound out of them. My fav is the amp grey.

I’ve never used Phelps, but have heard nothing but good comments about them. I’d have to add Bugling Bull’s Mellow Yellow Mama and Elk101’ s All-Star to the mix as easiest to use.

Rocky mountain bully bull with Rocky mountain Reed's. Awesome

Thanks for the video.

When using the external reed call, you don't just blow into it. You need to bite on the reed and slide it in between your teeth while blowing and then release your bite on the reed while continuing to blow in short bursts.

x2 Wyo.. the elk 101 all star was the easiest I've used and very versatile.

Check out the new rip-it diaphragms and mouth calls by Native by Carlton. They are good looking calls and easy to use. Sound great too!

The "Cowgirl" call has always been my favorite as I'm just not capable of using one of those diaphragms. Usually in combination with a matriarch call of some sort.

Nah, had one of those Hoochie Mamas. After about a year it developed a bad case of what sounded like flatulence.

My Phelps Born and Raised bugle and 3 BRO reeds were on my doorstep when I got home last night. Wow, I sure like those reeds and the sound of that bugle! I'll have to try out the AMP series too...
