Sound effects

(PalmerPirate) #1

I’m new here, but not new to the genre. I’m making a short independent spaghetti western-style film and am looking for a particular pistol sound effect. You know the one I’m talking about; the squeaky gun shot sound that came from Lee Van Cleef’s pistol in “For a Few Dollars More” and was featured prominently in “Django.” I believe that the sound effects are half the film- Even though two characters may fire the same type of firearm in the same circumstances and the same caliber, their pistols will deliver a different sound. How pure the genre is, that the sound effect matched the character, not the gun. As common as this sound is in spaghetti westerns, I can’t seem to find it anywhere on the internet. Do any of you know where a fellow might find a resource for some of these classic sounds?

Wow, that first one almost sounds like a reverb tank getting kicked.
