Noise When Recording Bass

I recently got a Guild Starfire bass - it's awesome! But when I record it through my ampeg DI into my Apollo Twin, there's a really annoying noise. They're single coils but it's not the normal hum (I switch from both pickups to just bridge pickup in the example so you can hear). Any ideas what this might be?

When I come out of the headphone output on the Ampeg DI into my headphones, this noise isnt there. I tried running a solidybody 6 string through the DI into my Apollo and that noise isnt there. It seems to be isolated to the bass.
