if your starting out never overlook the good ole box call. simple to use and can produce almost any sound you should need. next i would go with my personal fav, a knight and hale sla-tek pot call. mouth calls are great when you get them in close but most people need plenty of practice before becoming proficient with them.
Practice
Practice
Practice.
Good luck

My favorite is by far the Lohman Thunderdome. In my opinion, it makes the best sounding yelp of any call ive ever heard.

as of now I'm using a Primos Power Cyrstal sounds really good, but I will be getting a custome call this summer, the guy that makes them is back-up on orders. My friend has one, and it sounds fantasic. Last week he used to call in my bird, everytime he used it, the bird called back

Box calls are very easy, slates are pretty easy, and diaphrams are by far the most difficult of the 3 overall to use IMO most of the time. I use box calls to locate birds, slates occassionally when a diaphram isnt working, sometimes just changing a call does the trick. I mainly us diaphrams allot after I know where the birds are. Dan Thumma of Grand C Calls makes some great custom stuff. His 4 hole slate is about the easiest slate call Ive ever used.

I LOVED that call untill i sat on it and smashed it [:'(] Haven't been able to find one since. I have taken a liking to my Boss Tom Glass/Hickory slate call. That combined with an acrylic striker has been a proven combination in my past.

I'd go with a friction call or two first, they are pretty easy to learn. I have turkey hunted for years and still struggle with mouth calls, some people take to them pretty naturally so you shouldn't completely write them off. If I was only allowed one call I would pick a slate hands down. Although they make slate type calls with all kinds of different surfaces i still think a plain slate surfaced call, in a wood pot and wooden striker is the sweetest sounding call in the woods. I really like Primos calls, Knight & Hale, Quaker Boy and HS Strut are all pretty good too. Good luck!

Every person likes something different... Take your budget, go get something that you can afford and practice with it... listen to the hens and mimick the tone, pitch. number of yelps, time between calls... everything they do...
Cause they make the Toms hot, and you want to too...

Geeze my favorite call.... I can't really pick just one...

I'd say that if I was only going to hunt with a few I'd pick a Sadler McGraw mouth call, a Woodhaven Legend Glass and probably just a cheap K&H Wet Willy Box. I've broken damn near every box call I've ever owned just from regular old hunting usage... the woodhaven real hen's paddle split last week.

I favorite is probably the Primos glass jackpot. I just got i this year and let me tell you, it sounds sweet. As for mouth calls i like the quaker boy calls.
