    Tried the Vaseline and it didn’t help. The e clips seemed pretty tight.

    I have noticed it on a few bows. Replaced cams, e-clips, everything else. It is a vibration from the string and the cam.  The remedy I have found that works great is to throw some string silencers/monkey tails on the bow. I guarantee it will take away the buzz.

    With one monkey tail at bottom, should I put one more at top? What are the best type of string silencers?

    I have had my creed for about a month now and have had no buzzing sound from the bow . I placed the string stop to a point of just touching the string. a week after having the bow I noticed the cable sitting low in the timing hole bow was pulling 73 lbs. the dealer set timing right by twisting cable up. set bow to 70 lbs. two   weeks later I felt a slight pain in my left bicep. kept shooting . but know reduced to 60 lbs. I guess I should of worked my way up to max poundage. and not been a idiot still feel it after a month . but love the bow smooth shooter

    I have found a great way to locate noise on your bow. Take a rubber mallet and start tapping the riser while loosely holding the bow.You can hear any noise the bow generates during the shot except sting twang!

    I must be lucky, my bow is virtually silent.  But, I’m glad to know about the issues and possible fixes, should the problem arise.

    I have an update on my buzz problem. I took it back to my dealer and after an hour and a half of  pressing and checking every little thing on the bow it came down to the cam. We couldn’t replicate the sound with the cam off of the bow but once under pressure the cam made the sound again. We then changed the cam out with a new one and the sound was gone and it was dead quite. After further discussion with the dealer and Mathews, we all  decided the best thing to do was to send the bow back to get it completely checked out and fixed or replaced.
    I will let everyone know what the outcome is in the end. Can’t say enough great things about Mathews and the way they take care of problems. Also shout out to my dealer for taking the time.

    I recently picked up a creed to and I also have that same problem it sounds like the vibration is coming from the cam.
    I am going to go down to the archery shop here and swap out the cam hopefully this cures the problem its definitely not helping me get confident with the bow. Thank goodness I still have my Z7 won’t let that go any time soon{#emotions_dlg.mathews_arrow}

    I recently bought my creed and found it had a rattle in the cam, checked e clips tightened bolts and its still making that noise. Is the fix replacing the cam ?

    OK, my creed has started this infamous buzz as well {#emotions_dlg.mathews_mad}.

    Everything is tight and to spec, and other than this annoying buzz, the bow shoots great. Has there been an official fix to this or will we have to live with this?

    I read in another thread (that I cant find right now) that that noise was caused by a loose 3rd cam bolt that is hidden under the limb near the bottom axle.  After tightening this bolt, the noise went away. To get to this bolt, the bow has to be pressed.

    Before I take my creed to the shop to press the bow to check this, has anyone tried this and did it work ?

    On mine that bolt was tight and the buzz is still there. I believe I’m going to have to replace the cam because the shop tried a different one and the noise went away but when they put mine back on the buzz came back.  I hate to do it but the buzz bothers me.

    I agree that the buzz is very bothersome and if it requires replacing the cam them this is what we need to do – hope Mathews agrees.  Before that however,I’d like to know what is the difference from the original cam and the new version one that causes the buzz?  I would not want to go though the trouble of having it changed and then have it start again after another 100 shots.
