Angry ringing pipes

whenever we turn off the cold water tap the pipes start making a very loud ringing sound at about 180Hz. it lasts anywhere from a few seconds to half an hour or so.
what is this, and how can we fix it?

The most likely cause is your pressure regulating valve at the main water entrance. Theortically they can be rebuilt, but just forget that.....replace the whole valve.
