I have a single coil strat that I play through a vox da5 amp. Whenever I play a chord that involves an open g string, (open g chord, open c chord) I get a hum from the amp. Why is it doing this?

It doesn't matter if the amp is clean or distorted.

I'm suspecting it might have to do with the strings? like unwounded or wounded g string? I strung them with Ernie ball 9's electric guitar strings. They're like 2 months old, but could be older.

I have a similar problem. I get a similar strange buzzing if I play any fret between 9 and 13 on the G string. I have a feeling it's the speaker.
