I have been trying to diagnose a plumbing noise problem
with no success and would appreciate some more seasoned
When I open the upstairs bathroom sink cold water faucet
just a little I get a strong loud vibrating sound. It goes away
as I increase the water flow.
No problem with the hot water faucet or downstairs faucets
(hot and cold). I first thought it a hammer problem but that
supposedly only happens on closing faucets and anyway I
did bleed the system to all air back into the air chambers.
But this ghoulish noise persists.
Pointers much appreciated. Thanks.

Could be a loose disk. The cold water faucet could have a disk
floating around and vibrating as it throttles more, and vibrates less
as it throttles less.
This would lead me towards repair/replace the disk.
Just a guess... Not your plumber.
