Door Stop

I always liked the sound this old spring door stop makes when accidentally kicked, but never recorded it until now. I think the fact that its attached to a one hundred two year old wooden door gives is some nice resonance.

This is a basic mono recording originally at 48kHz and 24bit. I plugged my favorite large diaphragm condenser into my M-Audio Firewire 410 with the phantom power enabled. I’m not sure what I might use it for. Perhaps it will make up some percussion in a future track.

  1. Surprisingly good sustain. Nice, rich, earthy tone. That is not typical from my experience. Cool to have a home that provides such a nice soundscape.

  2. I used to drive my parents absolutely bonkers with those things. Thanks for the memories.
