Fragile! Glass Smashing FX


There’s something thrilling about the sound of glass breaking. Whether it’s the danger involved or the difficulty in conveying that danger into the edited sound, glass breaking sound effects remain a very difficult but useful tool in the sound editors library.

Over the course of a few years and several recording sessions of various size, this collection of glass breaking sounds came to be. From small cups, plates, and bottles to large jugs, jars and windows, the sounds found here in are designed to convey the violence and danger associated with glass breaking.

In addition to the ‘dry’ library of sounds, a useful ‘wet’ library of re-amped, or “Worldized” sound effects has also been included. Consisting of 54 out of the 83 included glass smashing sounds, this second tonal option was prepared in two locations; one, a tall, narrow concrete stairwell, and the other an interior living room complete with furniture and unruly early reflections for a total of 108 additional files for your choosing.

Combined, the Fragile! Glass Smashing Sound Effects library from Tall Tale Sound presents you with 191 mono & stereo sound effects, ready for download today!


Using a wide variety of microphones, from vintage ribbon mics to modern condensers, this library has 83 sound effects, mic’d relatively close, edited & mixed into either mono or stereo files ready to be dropped in to your next project.
