Audio of an electric lamp bulb buzzing away. The recorder was held approximately 5cm away from the bulb. I have applied some EQ on the low end as I had to amplify this quite substantially for it to be audible.

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 "H6 (XY) Zoom recorder" on 11th January 2018.
