Raw audio created by forcefully scraping a metal mallet along a piano string, causing the pitch to rise as the mallet scrapes against the string. The dampers are resting on the strings.

I've uploaded this as a free sample for you to use, but do please also check out the full library I created.

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 8th June 2017.

Note: Audio quality is always better when downloaded.
