Good sites for samples......

I'm looking for a really good sample of a hammer hitting an anvil, and haven't found "that" perfect sample in my searches thus far. Now normally I'd just walk out to the barn (St. Joe, MO...right) and give it a whack, but I've seemed to have misplaced my sledgehammer. Soooo, any suggestions or links to sites with good samples would be greatly appreciated, Thanks!

I used the Sound Dogs site for a couple projects. Pretty good quality. Large selection. It's pretty much the entire Sound Ideas catalog online. I think they have some Hollywood Edge stuff thrown in as well.

You might also try:

www.sound-effects-library.com

British company, I think. Huge library - lets you download lo-res clips for free to audition the sounds, then you buy what you want. Database searchable by description. Fees depend on length of sample, but for something short like what you want, probably less than $5 USD.

I used them recently to get some "footsteps on a marble floor". Worked just fine for me.

Ditto LittleDog's suggestion. It's great for client situations for billing and what nots.
