The Sound Stone is an important key item in EarthBound. It is used to record each of the Eight Melodies from the eight Your Sanctuary locations throughout the earth. Ness receives it from Buzz Buzz after he is mortally wounded at the hands of Lardna Minch


A completed Sound Stone, with all Eight Melodies recorded.

The Sound Stone records short melodies from each of the Your Sanctuaries found throughout the game. Using on the overworld it will take the player to a screen that plays all of the melodies acquired thus far in sequence.

After the Sound Stone records the last notes of the melody, Ness is taken to Magicant, and the item disappears permanently from his inventory. The Sound Stone cannot be thrown away, sold, or put into storage with Escargo Express

  • It is possible to avoid obtaining the Sound Stone at the beginning of the game: if Ness's inventory is full, the Sound Stone will be sent into his closet and can be obtained whenever he speaks to Tracy with an available slot in his inventory. This can be done by filling his inventory with Cookies from fighting Spiteful Crows.
