The Recordist is proud to present a new series of HD Professional sound effects libraries featuring rare and unique guns. Next in this series is the ZB37 Machine Gun. Recorded on a 400 acre ranch in North Idaho with a huge array of microphones and handheld recorders.
Perspectives include: attached, very close, medium and distant. From just a few inches out to 150 meters, this collection offers a wide range of source material. 10 mono and 7 stereo microphones time aligned and level matched provide a “ready to go” set of 24-bit 96k WAV files with detailed Soundminer Pro metadata from this Czechoslovak 7.92×57mm Mauser belt fed weapon. Single and burst variations are included along with mechanical action “foley” sounds. Special close-up designed microphone combinations are also included. The weapon recorded is authentic, not a replica.
Gun Background (Wiki):
The ZB37 is a Czechoslovak machine gun. A versatile weapon, it was used both as a squad support weapon, as a mounted machine gun for tanks and other armoured vehicles, and on fixed positions inside Czechoslovak border fortifications. Adopted before the World War II by the armies of Czechoslovakia and Romania, it was also license-built in the United Kingdom as the Besa machine gun. Following the German invasion of Czechoslovakia, large quantities of the weapon were captured by the Wehrmacht and used during the war under the designation of MG 37.
