Off Hook Tone?
« on: August 24, 2018, 05:16:36 PM »
Can someone send me a mp3 of the off hook tone used by step by step switches by General Electric in the U.S?

Or was there no off hook tone?


Right now I'm using a 'CryBaby' tone as my off hook tone but I want to be period-correct on this,


Also where can I buy one of these step by step switches https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FVsosQnWmL4
for cheap. My budget would be $35-$45 Or could anyone possibly donate something like this?

I'm guessing all I need to get a prototype working is

one of the switches from the video
a ring generator
a tone generator
a line finder?

48v and 24v DC power supply?

I know there is a tone called the 'Howler' tone but I cannot find anything online. the only tone I found was a howler tone for a different country.

Look up "MADhouse Telephone" on FB, then search "howler". I have a post about mine with videos in the comments. I couldn't post them here. ADavid

That is a 12 hour clip, I listened for around 12 seconds which was too long.
