Pinball Ringtones

Pinball Ringtones

Looking for something different in an analog-type ringtone? How about trying the sounds of a vintage pinball machine?

Since the 1970s, most pinball machines have adopted electronic tones, recorded sounds, and overly intrusive music. Earlier pinball machines used bells, bumpers, and metal sensors to create a calmer, less insistent aural atmosphere.

In addition to ringtones, you could use these sounds for alerts, notifications, or alarm tones.

When you hear these sounds in a crowded area, you’ll know it’s your mobile device that needs attention and not someone else’s.

With everyone else trying to be hip, you can go the other way, and be retro.

You can find the pinball ringtones here at my Beepzoid website.
