Recording Original Rotary Phone Sound Effects of German, Swedish & British Telephones

While walking down the street in Limassol, Cyprus I saw a shop window with many vintage rotary phones. Without any hesitation, I stepped into this designer’s wedding store and asked the owner Victoria, if I could record the sound of the rotary phones?

I suppose that doesn’t happen so often and she was very surprised by my question. We talked about sound recording and I explained to her how important such sound effects are. Later she gave me a room in the back of the store, where we took out all the phones from the window and I started recording each one of them!

I recorded the sound of the phone lifting, hanging up, and rotating the dial. For the recording, I used the Usi Pro and one AKG C 411 contact microphone. In this phone sound effects library, I separated the contact microphone recording which can be download individually plus the stereo mix with the contact microphone recordings.

From my research, the phones were Siemens (Germany), Ericsson Dialog (Sweden), and GPO (Great Britain) from 1980-1990 or even older.
