Noisy solenoid valve on Aprilaire 560 Humidifier

My model 560 humidifier is plumbed as follows: faucet-like shut-off at cold water wipe, 1/4 inch copper tubing to the solenoid valve. The water flowing through the gives off a high pitch sound that carries through the house. I'd like to replace the shut off with a gate valve and "fix" the solenoid. Any recommendations?

Noisy solenoid valve on Aprilaire 560 Humidifier

Got a picture of that valve?
A gate is the last type of valve I'd suggest. The stem may leak, over time they do not shut off.
