Laundry Mangles is a library full of sounds from vintage machines that once were used in many public washhouses. In some locations they are in use even today.
Basically, the weight of a huge box filled with stones was used to press big pieces of linen, bed sheets or towels wound on rollers below. Early models were operated by hand which was very exhausting and soon the machines were equipped with electric motors and belt drives.
This library delivers sounds from 5 different models of various ages that can be operated with crank shaft or electrical belt drive. All machines have been extensively recorded so that any imaginable perspective and operational state is covered. This includes full runs with belt drive and crank shaft, protective grating handlings, idling motor and much more.
