I bought this amp a couple of months ago and it sounds great. However, the
tubes rattle and the sound comes though the speaker. This is very annoying. Does anybody have any advice? I have tried everything including talking to ampeg about it. If anyone has this amp or knows how to solve the problem let me know

I own a whole bunch of Ampeg amps, but your problem seems more generic than that. Which tubes are making noise? Usually it is a preamp tube. Try gently tapping on the tubes to see which one(s) are making noise. Normally, just replacing the offending tube will fix it.

In this particular amp your tube rattles are coming from the power tubes.
Your amp should be under warranty (5 years).Take your amp to your nearest service
center or replace the power tubes yourself.Don't forget to bias and use quality
tubes(Svetlana EL34 or GT-E34Ls)
