The Tommy Gun sound effects library features 42 recordings of the historic weapon, ready to electrify your projects with this iconic American firearm. While the Thompson Submachine Gun was used primarily in the 1920’s and ‘30’s, the firing, bullet pass-bys, and ricochet sounds from the ‘Chicago Typewriter’ can be used for guns of any time period.
Recorded to tape by renowned sound artist Andy Aaron (Scarface, Apocalypse Now, Return of the Jedi), these characterful gunshot sounds feature both single shots, bursts of various lengths, and fully automatic gun fire. The collection was recorded in a secluded forest in Woodstock, NY, complete with firing targets including cans, broken furniture, a washing machine, and glass bottles of “shooting beer” (not to be confused with "drinking beer") The session came to an abrupt end when a stray bullet severed an audio cable near a target.
Complemented by sounds of metal impacts, glass and dirt debris, bullet pass-bys, these gun recordings will add explosive energy to your scenes that feature old-school gangsters, mob/mafia members, World War II soldiers — as well as contemporary gun-wielders. Each sound file is embedded with rich, descriptive metadata for fast, intuitive search results to help increase efficiency and sustain creativity.
