    I'll say it before someone else does, searching the forums is usually advised before asking a question.

    But here are some likely candidates for the cause:
    -Neck adjustment needed via truss rod
    -the grooves in your nut are too deep
    -fret re-dressing may be required
    -have you changed string gauges? that may also be the cause.

    to hard of a attack when hitting the strings is another example..

    if you hit the strings lightly does it make the same noise?
