    Another solid idea. I'll do that with my "batten down the hatches" routine. Thanks.

    I found a bad stabilizer and loose pendulum sight by holding the grip and hitting the limbs with the palm of my other hand. I worked from top to bottom and it helped replicate vibrations, and isolate the sounds.

    I've also noticed some string buzz sometimes come from "string leeches", peep sights. Tie them in tightly. Plucking the string helps isolate the irritating vibes. Rubber washer between the stabilizer and riser...teflon tape on threads of all the screws. Quiets and prevents loosening. It gets tedious but I hate little noises. Kinda like dashboard rattles in my truck.
