F3 has buzz when hit hard

I recently had my C5 tuned and I've noticed F3 has a slight buzz when I strike it hard. The E next to it has a similar problem. Other notes are fine and sound clean. Any suggestions what might be causing this?

Here is a recording of the note F3 buzzing

It would be instructive to also hear the surrounding notes for comparison.

How frequently do you have the instrument tuned?

Where in the sound envelope are you hearing the buzz?

Did you try it on single strings muting the other two?

A sound recording of C3 up to A4 and back is here . On listening to it there is no obvious *buzz* but there is an *sharp edge* at the end of the E and F which is very distracting when playing. The notes are also noticibly louder when playing. I'm not sure if this comes across in the recording although I can hear it.

What I hear is voicing issues. The tuning of the unisons seems fine. Voicing (tone regulation) is completely separate from tuning.

Thanks Peter. That is what I wanted to know.
