I'd been demoing mics last weekend and noticed this odd periodic "bell clang" from a brand new Peluso 22 47 SE. It was driving me nuts so I tried multiple chain combos, pres (API A2D, LA-610, Digi 002), and mics. I only got this sound when the 22 47 SE was first in the chain.

Has anyone heard anything like this?
At the suggestion of a fellow Gearslut, I contacted John Peluso at the factory. Peluso said it sounded like the tube had been damaged in shipment during our sub-zero weather and he immediately sent out two new tubes free of charge. This solved the problem and the 2247SE now sounds like the proverbial butter-slathed oak: http://www.snowvalley.org/Files/Peluso2.mp3
Now THAT'S customer service. Three cheers for Peluso.
