    I recently bought the mathews creed and it makes the buzz noise and vibration also..I know its coming from the cam. I took it back to the archery shop and they re tightened all the bolts and inspected the bow.. the noise is still there but they can here it. The archery shop say it should be fine now but then when I took it home and shot it outside, I still here the buzz noise from.. When I pluck on the string it makes a buzz noise at the cam.. took it back to the archery shop and shot it indoors and could not here it indoors.. So, they changed the cam out and i took it home and shot it outside and the noise is still there.. also the cam seems to be slightly slanted a little more then the others while i was there at the shop looking at the other mathews creed that they had on display.. It bothers me a lot because my old mathews drenalin is quieter. dont get me wrong but the creed shoots amazing. its just that the noise and vibration bothers me a lot.. hopefully someone can fix this issue..

    For those of you still having issues try putting a little bit of wax on the serving where the string leaves the cam and the idler.

    Thanks, I will try that. Another thing that I did in the interim that really helped was to install an additional 3 monkey tails on the string and cables (as in the installation instructions); that took most of the buzz away !! I am a lot happier now !!

    I would take off the monkey tails and just try the wax.

    mine has the BUZZ also…if you put your fingers on the wheel where the string just starts to meet it,  the noise is gone……wtf.  I’m hopeing they make a lower string stop like my z7ex has.  I’m guessing the problem would be solved.

    I have a slight vibration noise coming from mine on the shot, but it’s the string stop.

    I also have the buzz. I notice it when shooting and when plucking the string. I have also found as a non shooter that if you are more than a few feet from the shooter you can’t hear the buzz.  But as a shooter its beyond frustrating to hear. I have spent many a hour messing with it and am positive its coming from the cam. I have tried putting different rubber things on the cam, all help but none completely get rid of the buzz. I am going to try the wax suggestion but I really hope Mathews or someone comes up with a fix soon……its getting way to close to season!!

    I tried the wax. It seemed to help when plucking the string but when I went to the range and shot it was still there. I will be bringing it to my archery shop this week to have there tech look at it. I will post the findings.

    Any fixes?  Been shooting my new creed for 1 week.  Out of the box it was silent.  Deadly silent.  After making DW adjustments and shooting ~50 arrows….I’ve got the dang CAM BUZZ!!!!  twang the string and there’s no question about it…cam rattles.

    My wife is shooting my Z7 now and comparatively, hers is drastically more quiet.  So much that she even commented on how loud my creed is all of a sudden.

    I have inspected every bolt on the bow…including the 3 in the cam…All are tight.  Tissue seems to take away the noise, as does a finger where the string meets the cam… extra wax didn’t do anything….  We need a fix!!

    Mathews – Can we get a resolution?!

    Adding wax to serving where it meets the cam took the buzz away. The pro shop didnt recommend waxing the string where it contacts cam for the possible noise in cold though.

    Mine is doing the same thing. When i bought it, it had absolutely no noise. As soon as i got home and started shooting the buzz started. I took it back to have the tech look at it but he couldnt hear the buzz inside either.

    My Creed is doing the same. First 500 shots whisper quiet……….now the buzz has started……not bad, yet still annoying to me. $900. Should be silent.
