    Sounds like an earthing (earth loop) issue; when someone touches the amp they provide an earth and the humming ceases. The amp itself may not be earthed; try connecting a single wire to the casing (it may have a ground connection on the back) and the other end to the earth (make sure it is the earth) in 3-pin plug. Plug it into a wall socket, and the hum should disappear.

    This just worked for me.
