Recording a pump jack sound effect in California, USA
On our way from Costa Mesa up to San Jose, we saw several pump jacks however, many were not operating at the time. Luckily, we found one near the road that was pumping oil.
When we got closer to the machine, I was excited to hear the rusty, squeaky, and pulsing sounds the pumpjack was making.
The road was bumpy and dusty but we finally made it to the gate. I could already see and hear the vibrations of the rusty door. The whole fence was shaking and a sign rattles each time the pump went up and down.
It created incredible mechanical sound effects that are perfect for any kind of horror or spooky sound design.
I used the Zoom H6 and the Rode NTG 4+ as the recording equipment.
