    Hey All
    Another SVP-PRO user here suffering by the same problems - lot's of "hum" & noisy DI.
    I am looking for suggestions on tube replacement to help eliminate or reduce the noise. The unit was purchased new from Bass Central a few months back. I have searched the forums but have not yet come upon a definitive fix. Also. I have e-mailed Lord Valve as suggested , but did not get a respose, yet. I don't know if I am looking to change much in overall "tone" of the unit -I am pretty much happy with the sound out of the box - just want it to be quiet!
    Thanks
    Glenn

    Trying calling Lord Valve instead. I've been really satisfied with the tubes he sent me. Dramatically reduced the noise, but I still will get noise if I crank both the master and the gain knobs. Tone sounds great, go for it.
