Why does my shower make a humming noise?

For some reason or another, my shower emits a very audible (and annoying) humming noise. The only thing that I can remotely compare it to is the sound of a tea kettle going off, though it is not as loud nor as "harsh" on the ears.
What's weird is that I only get this noise when using warm/hot water; in fact, I can pin point the "place" on shower knob where the noise will kick in when I turn the knob far enough. Due to this, I'm expecting it might be something to do with my hot water heater, as the same problem has occurred with different shower heads (what I originally thought to be the source of the problem).
Has anyone else had this problem before? Can it be fixed? Thanks!
