shower noise


I just had the shower replaced and now when i turn on the shower it makes a deep humming noise. It doesn't seem to be banging just the noise. The bathtub faucet doesn't make any noises.

Drop leg elbow is loose, the hole in the wall where the spout comes through the wall was made to tight, the riser pipe is rubbing againt something.
A simple test would be to remove and replace the shower head with a cheap one and see if it still does it.

You could just grab on to the gooseneck for shower head and try pushing/pulling on it to test that.
Try removing the shower head to see if it gets quiter,did you remove the restrictor from the shower head before installing it?
