The listings site for collectors of rare and unusual noises

 

Two Bongs from a Gong

Two moderately loud bongs from a dinner gong, circa 1926, thought to be part of a collection obtained from Longleat in the early eighties.

£80 for the pair, but will consider splitting


Echo of a distant volley, American Civil War

Although not the original sound, this excellent replica is a must for collectors of military memorabilia. Still in its original box.

£40 ono


Platform announcement, Glasgow Central, Late fifties

Some damage to the final sentence and slurring of some sibilants but otherwise in excellent condition. The section mentioning the buffet car is particularly interesting.

Will deliver to anywhere in the UK. Also, ask about our limited edition festive ting-a-lings.

The word 'tangerine' spoken slowly in a North Country accent

Thought to have once belonged to George Bernard Shaw and subsequently gifted to the people of Barcelona in grateful thanks for the donkey.

£400
