    So in reality you are running your mic through 2 preamps? This seems pretty counterintuitive to me...and it could be this signal path that is resulting in the undesirable sound. The two gain stages combined I'm sure can result in a louder noise floor. Try taking one of the two preamps out of the signal path completely.
