    How deep do you normally make your pot calls?

    Mine are 3/4” to 13/16” on 3.5” calls. Lot of variables in pot calls, but that is what I have settled on.

    3/4-7/8 depending on wood. Only 3" calls. No 3 1/2" any more

    3.5 with 3" glass sound board. I have found glass sound boards are to my liking better. I do want to try some acrylic or wood boards

    What gap are you all using between soundboard and striking surface?

    I usually use the thickness of a slate strike plate

    FYI if you don't know...take notes of measurements and the slightest change in ANY measurement will change the sound!
