I want to say perfect, but there is a little issue with 100 watt bulbs and dimmers

I purchased this because it indicated it took up to three 100-watt bulbs. I just had it installed and was going to use it with a Lutron dimmer. Not a cheap Lutron dimmer, but a mid-range. I put 3 clear 100 watt bulbs in and it hummed terribly when I began to dim it. I called Hubbardton Forge and they blamed the dimmer. I did ask if there was particular brand of bulb they recommend for their fixtures and they said "no". I also asked if there was a particular brand or type of dimmer they recommend and the customer rep said "no". I then called ATG Lighting Universe and a customer rep from ATG was checking up on it for me when I did some experimentation. I purchased GE 100 watt Reveal bulbs, GE 100 watt soft white bulbs and GE 75 watt soft white bulbs. The 75 watt did not hum at all when dimmed. The 100 watt Reveal hummed almost as much as the GE clear. The GE 100 watt soft white hummed just a bit so it was almost non-discernible. So...my point is, not all bulbs are alike when it comes to this Hubbardton Forge fixture.
