tube preamp ac hum

I bought an inexpensive tube preamp made by ART-- lots of people complain about an ac hum-mine has this also- the thing is- it uses a 9v ac walwart as the power supply so the hum would be coming from the walwart right?

any thoughts on how to eliminate this hum- I hate sending stuff back
