Not sure of they have the domes but you might look at Brookside game calls. They sell frames, latex, etc.

I believe the dome frame is patented by rocky mt and licensed to primos. I doubt they’re available.

No law against making your own calls.

Thin Aluminum sheet metal frame. Make a steel die to cut the frames. Cut the fabric plates and latex, bend and compress the frame.

Sure you will need to experiment on latex and tension that you like....you single guys gotta have some old condoms around somewhere......

Might call Vandelay Industries. Not sure if they carry the domes, but, the best latex in the business!....Ask for George

JK...I couldn’t resist;-)

Beendare- The ribbed ones might have a unique sound. I hope AllAround doesn’t use the lubricated condoms. Yuk!
