Drop CTRL High-Profile "pinging" metal sound when typing?

more_vert
I recently got the Drop CTRL High-Profile keyboard in the mail, and immediately when i started typing i noticed a loud, metal reverb sound while typing. I have a Drop ALT High-Profile board and I hear absolutely nothing like this from that board. I even took one of my lubed switches from my ALT and one of the keycaps from it as well but I still hear it. Is there a problem with my new board? Or is this just because the CTRL is designed differently? So far im really not a fan, it's the loudest keyboard I've ever typed on. I could take a video for an example if necessary.

Just got my HP drop CTRL recently and I'm experiencing so much reverb as well. I've since stuck sorbothane between p lates and pcb (cut manually) and managed to reduced this significantly, it's still there but it's not so bad anymore. But the spacebar though, man it's horrible, no matter what I do (changed multiple switches, Cherry Stabs, sorbothane inside the spacebar key) it still sounds so hollow, was hoping you found some sort of a fix on yours.
