Trust This advise: Keep Those Old External Sounds !!!
This can be one of those strange things in my swiftlet farming career.
While doing revamping works in Kulai, the owner of the affected BH joined me with those back breaking activities.
He stayed in the same hotel for two nights and we travel daily to the BH using my car.
He was willing to raise those hammer to knock some walls until some of his fingers blistered all over.
During the first day with him I wanted to impressed with what I have done and played some of my best sounds.
What I did was to play those high end external sounds one by one, about 10 of them.
I though one of my so call latest and high end sounds will attract some birds into the revamp BH.
However during that particular day I was wrong.
Nothing yes nothing happened. Not one bird entered the BH even the revamp works stop for the day. It was like all those birds being hypnotized by my neighbour.
The owner was hoping to see some action but I failed to impress.
He was not happy and of course I was pretty disappointed.
"Harry I think all those birds were hypnotized by our neighbour and they never reacted when they passed our entrance hole." he said.
"We shall try again tomorrow with my second set of sounds." I tried to comfort him.
The following day I did that but this time I used some of those old sounds that I thought were absolute and no longer attractive.
The first I choose was D'Honey.
I was taken back when at least 4-5 birds started to rush to the entrance hole and entered.
I then played the second old sound my Godsend then Hartanto and D'awesome.
The effect was the same. The birds seems to love these oldies as compared to the latest.
Hmm this is something weird.
How come they prefer those old songs as compared to the latest hot sounds?
I don't think I know the right answers but this special event tells me that never ever throw away your old sounds.
You might one day need these old sounds for they can be as effective as those new one.
It saved my day when the owner saw with his own eyes that those birds were rushing into his BH and inside there were a number flying into the main hall and the VIP rooms.
"Wah Harry I am very glad to see them entering even when your workers are still fixing those light points."
The lesson from this actual experience is that please keep those old sound in your collection.
You never know.
It can save your life. Trust me.....
