(Ness got the Sound Stone.)

Remember Buzz Buzz’s final words as they give you some very obvious exposition before they eventually pass on into the darkness after giving you the Sound Stone. What do you do with the Sound Stone in Earthbound? It is an item that records melodies from “Your Sanctuary” locations. There are eight “Your Sanctuary” locations in Earthbound. However, if you are struggling with inventory in Earthbound, you can simply hand the Sound Stone to Ness’ sister Tracy, and it will still do record melodies.
