    Anyone ever have any porblems with these units as far as noise or hum my svp-pro seems to be a bit noisy and i'm thinking of switching up. My tech just put russian groove tubes in the pro and they were fine for a couple weeks now they are starting to get noisy.
     
  2. No noise issues with my SVP-CL.
     
  3. Nope, I had one for a while. Theyre known to be quite quiet, especially in comparison to the other Ampeg preamps.

  4. My SVP-CL is very quiet. Have you tried a different cable between the SVP and your power amp? Maybe you just have an intermittent cable.

    Mine's dead quiet. Any sources of electrical noise nearby? Is it still noisy when your bass and cable are disconnected?

    IIRC, the Pros have a history of being noisey. The CLs are very quiet.

    I haven't heard my pre make ANY untoward noise unless I've CRANKED the gain and master, and I'm not seriously going to play the rig with those settings. At typical gig settings, it is dead quiet.
