Opening Harley Davidson 1993 Beer Can in 2022

I needed the sound of a beer can opening for a project I’m working on. My dad suggested I try this duplicate can from his collection. It’s not often that I get to open an old can as most have already been emptied from the bottom to preserve the seal.

I ultimately combined the sounds from four (4) TASCAM TM-80 microphones to create the final audio track. I discarded the audio from the ZOOM H4n Pro as it picked up too much handling noise, and from the Behringer gooseneck as it was too low to use (but worth a try).
