Hamburger Lady duck call?

Post by appliancide » Sun Jun 16, 2019 8:29 pm

Does anyone know of what kind of duck call Genesis used for this song? I need one for reasons.

Bonus if I can avoid giving reality tv "stars" any money.

It's an antique fox hunting horn. They can be cheap or expensive based on whether it has antique/collectors value or not. I've never played one so I'm not sure how much technique is involved. Truly a haunting sound tho, especially in that song!

Not a duck. That is a rooks call if anything.

I have an Acme Crows Call Made in England. They vary from one to the other. Try searching rooks call or crows call. ... CEA&adurl=

edit - looks like more of a simple mono whistle of some sort but a rooks call will get you close. Does not have the sustain of whatever G is using.

Years ago I used an electric kazoo run through the modular.
