    I've been having a few issues with my sound becoming increasingly distorted over time at rehearsals and gigs... I've eliminated my amp and bass from the equation, so it looks like it's down to my Digitech BP8. I suspect there's an issue with the valve in it - has anyone else with one of these tried changing the valve to a different type of 12AX7 for different sounds? I need something that will stay clean (unless I want distortion! ;) )...
