Raw audio of hammering small, metal nails into a wooden bookshelf. Recorded inside a house. The recorder was about 30cm away from the hammer strikes.

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.

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 7th October 2017.
