    I've got an ampeg svt classic head that has a rattle in the d.i. (sounds like change in an ashtray rattling) sometimes it will come out of the amp. Its probably a tube just wondering if anyone knows which one or any other ideas on it

    I guess talked to ampeg they couldn't tell me which tube so i'll just replace all of the pre amp tubes Kinda sucks it's only about 6 months old. Guess i'll never let my drummer move my equipment again!

    Could be any of the preamp tubes, since the DI comes off the power amp input.

    Usually the "chains rattling" is actually a power amp tube, but that wouldn't come out the DI.
