Favorite Sounds

what are your favorite pin sounds and callouts?

I found this thread but didn’t want to necropost and also wanted to broaden it to sounds in general.

here’s a couple of mine that are burned into my brain:

  • right down the middle coin drop from Apollo 13
  • today today today from sopranos
  • thank you boys from eatpm
  • the multiball startup sound from Addams family
  • the increasing pitch sounds from meteor when you rack up a massive bonus
  • the main theme from grand lizard
  • The 49th bonus tone on Paragon
  • “Oh, Yes” for the 1B hurry-up on AFM; the ROTU callout and music, too
  • Lyman’s Lament on Monster Bash
  • “Whitewater!”
  • The Counterforce faster-higher humming that warns you your bonus multiplier is about to vanish

There’s too many but here’s the first few that come to mind.

  • The MM coin drop sound
  • “Hey, watch those hands buster”
  • The AFM extra ball sequence
  • LOTR “You need people of intelligence on this sort of mission, quest, thing”
  • The Twilight Zone jackpot sound

This but Homer saying “holy crap!” after getting a massive end-of-ball bonus (like 10M+).


  • All the callouts on Addams Family
  • “Lock is Lit and so am I” callout in Cactus Canyon
  • In Deadpool, whenever you beat a mode, announcer says “Deadpool Wins!” which Deadpool says “Now say I’m the greatest!” for the announcer just says “No!”

TRS coin drop sound (first two guitar chords for Brown Sugar)
AFM touch a flipper button in attract mode… YOUR SHOE IS UNTIED!
AFM The metallic thunk when you make a successful scoop shot. Best sounding scoop ever.
AC/DC Oh shit! You tilted!
Most every opening line in Family Guy. Never watched the show, love the crude humor to start every game.

The walking dead tilt warming sound.


I kinda prefer the Daily Bugle scoop on Venom over stroke of luck on AFM but both are pretty damn satisfying to nail.

Ripping the lit spinner on Black Knight, and having the increasing-pitch sound effect wrap “over the top” producing the amazing and oh so satisfying “Whaa whaaa whaa” sound at the end. That’s the best thing.


I was split between that, or the lit spinners on Flash Gordon and Sorcerer, and the former barely won out.
