Grubbs Tribute Cocobolo - Flying Duck Co.
The Flying Duck Co. Grubbs is based on the Mondo platform. Grubbs is one of the earliest documented commercial call makers. His call design construction influenced many Illinois call makers who followed, including Charles Perdew, Skippy Barto, and Val Leonard. Grubbs is generally credited with making the first banded duck call and creating the classic mouthpiece, which was copied, in one form or another, by a host of callmakers. Grubbs claimed to have made the first duck call for the commercial market in 1868. Still, there is no evidence to support this other than his testimony. The earliest documented mention of a Grubbs duck call is in the 1889-1890 Montgomery catalog. This is the only run of these calls that will be produced.
