I am wanting to buy some hubs that are kind of loud and cheap. I dont need anything great like Chris King, but it would be cool to have some noise. Also it would be good if it was cheaper. Thanks

If you take out the cassette and degrease it, itll make almost any hub louder. Some people say itll cause damage, but Ive done it all my bikes and Ive been fine.

DT Swiss hubs can be pretty loud. And TheRealJack is right, you can make any hub louder by taking the thick, heavy grease out and replacing it with thinner stuff. It will shorten the lifespan of the bearings if you don't check and regrease your hub often though.

Right now my hub and shimano deore is completely silent. would degreasing it help? I also want to buy a hub.

In my experience, Shimano hubs are always quiet

Just look up a sound check or YouTube review of whatever hub you're wanting to buy and you can usually hear it online. I ride the Profile Elite and it's so dang noisy. Love that noise though $$$
