Question sounds - (un-)sheathing ?!

I've recently found a nice little addon to handle sheathing / unsheathing of the weapon in a particular hand:

AutoSheath

I had no idea how much - if that weapon is out all the time - it gets sheathed / unsheathed. It happens a lot.

Does any addon exist, to silence such a thing?
I doubt it, given that it's such a specific request, but I have to ask.

Assuming it does not, then...
Does anyone know the various sound files - responsible for the sheathing / unsheathing noises?

I've looked through (but found nothing relevant in):

Mute Annoying WoW Sounds

If I just knew what the sounds are called, I could borrow and rename an empty file.

Thanks!

Problem solved. I went there:

Sound commands for every sound updated for Cataclysm
http://www.wowinterface.com/download...Cataclysm.html

I extracted the files and did "Ctrl+F", to find "sheath". I found the following:

/script PlaySoundFile("Sound\\Interface\\SheathMetal.ogg")
/script PlaySoundFile("Sound\\Interface\\SheathShield.ogg")
/script PlaySoundFile("Sound\\Interface\\SheathWood.ogg")

/script PlaySoundFile("Sound\\Interface\\UnSheathWood.ogg")
/script PlaySoundFile("Sound\\Interface\\UnsheathMetal.ogg")
/script PlaySoundFile("Sound\\Interface\\UnsheathShield.ogg")

I downloaded:

Mute Annoying WoW Sounds
http://www.wowinterface.com/download...WoWSounds.html

I found the first 0 byte ogg file I could - "Wrath_Login_1" (Sound v2.0\Sound\Ambience\GlueScreen).

I then made five copies, to have six in total, and gave them the names of the above files.

My half dozen new 0 byte sound files were then placed in a folder entitled "Interface" and that was placed in Warcraft's "Sound" folder

(This is located at C:\Program Files (x86)\World of Warcraft\Data).

After logging in, I now no longer hear those repetitive sheath / unsheath sounds.

Thank goodness!
