Hard to explain noise when hitting brakes and or turning slow

Hi all

Looking for a little help. I have this noise when hitting my brakes at only slower speeds. Like under 30mph but above 10mph. It doesn't sound like metal screeching. More like a "tone" played on a sick musical instrument. I thought it was the front brakes. Not that. I replaced rotors and pads and I still have the noise. They needed replaced anyhow but I can't figure out where it's comining from. I have replaced the rear rotors, calipers, and rotors about 40k miles ago. I rarely tow anything. Meaning once a year. I can't imagine that I have rear brake issues. I have however got a rock between the rear rotor and the inside where the axle is and boy did it make a noise. Thought I trashed my gears. I plan to take the rear rotors off just to check but I can't figure out where this tone is coming from. It's so random and I can't get it to do it all the time.
