From the description this seems to be the infamous cowbell, which usually is a rock caught in between the brake disc and the backing plate. (Search "cowbell" and you'll find lots of threads on m3post.) Tap on the plate and see if it has the same note. Sometimes some hard braking can free it, or you can try with your fingers. If it's not the same note, well, just ignore my comment.
