HADLEYS! so sweet especially in gold. on a purely sound level i think theyre more of a buzz. my friend has abbahs and theyre more like a bunch of fast clicks i also have some CKs theyre in between. my favorites are the hadleys

Hubs that need a service are loud. My King was probably the loudest. WTB & ringle use a light oil lube which allows for pawl noise. Hadley uses Teflon grease which should allow for a quiet hub if properly lubed.

You can make any good quality hub loud by changing the lubricant in them. Alot of dudes I know do that. You just take out the grease and replace it with either a thinner grease or with a thick oil. makes them sound awesome.
My hope bulbs sound mean with that done to them.....

we run silent hubs because you don't want people hearing where you ride

hmmm, i think the squirl in the spoke makes the hub sound somewhat squishy, and a deck of cards are cool too, put one card in the spokes and the faster you go the faster the beat.

-Take your current hub apart
-Clean out all the grease
-Get a handful of dirt from your backyard
-Shove the dirt in the dry hub
-Rebuild

That's how you get a loud hub.

You plan on trying to impress some chicks with a loud hub???
