Kid Magic Game Calls Conditioning and Use
Use the included Scotch Brite. Run across the entire calling surface in one direction only. To reduce build up on your Magic Wand (striker) you will want to blow off the residue prior to use. Run your Kid Magic Wand (striker) in the opposite direction when calling.
Condition the surface with a glass conditional stone (fine grit whetstone). Run across the calling surface in one direction only. Then clean the residue with your jeans or shirt. Run your Kid Magic Wand (striker) in the opposite direction when calling. Keep in mind that you are not polishing the surface, you want deep grooves, but even grooves. Deep scratches hinder performance, just like having a surface too smooth in places will. You can maintain the calling surface with 60-120 grit sandpaper between stone uses.
Kid Magic Wand (striker)
Your Kid Magic Wand (striker) can build up with slate, glass and aluminum residue. You will want to remove this with a Scotch Brite pad or 80-120 grit sandpaper.
Magic Tricks (calling techniques)
- Yelping – Make small circles 1/2” to 1” in length. Some people prefer making a “J” shape
- Clucking – Pull the peg toward you about 1/8” to 1” with light pressure
- Purring – Pull the peg toward you in a half-circle with light pressure
- Cutting – Pull the peg toward you 1/4” to 3/8”
- The closer to the edge of the calling surface the higher the pitch, closer to the middle will result in a deeper sound.
