Raw audio of me swinging bamboo close to the recorder. I originally recorded these for use in a video game. The 'C' swings are much slower.

This sound is NOT in the public domain. You MUST attribute/credit the sound if you use it. If you would prefer to not have to give attribution, then take a look at the attribution-free license.

An example of how you might credit is by putting this in the description/credits:
"Bamboo Swing, C5.wav" by InspectorJ (www.jshaw.co.uk) of Freesound.org

If any of these sounds have been of help, and you are feeling charitable, please do consider donating to Freesound to help keep the site running (a link is also on the home page). Any donations are greatly appreciated! And for more awesome sounds, do please check out my sound libraries.

Please comment on where you intend to use the sound, and feel free to post a link to the work where you used it if you want (I enjoy watching/listening to anything you create!)

The sound was recorded using a "H1 Zoom recorder" on 18th February 2017.

Note: Audio quality is always better when downloaded.

    I've used this sound in my game Cargo Cult for a thrown spear. https://fullsparedice.itch.io/cargocult
    I am building a list of sound artists to put in my credits. Thank you! I couldn't have done it without your help.
