Ok I've owned my B-52 at-112 for several months now and everything has been going great! Except...

I had an incredible tone from this thing. It was good for chunky palm muting, not horrible and shrill when I soloed... it was great. but all of a sudden if i turn the treble up at all (its at 0 right now) it sounds terrible. grainy and shrill and just bad... I thought maybe I needed to just get a new battery for my emgs. I got it switched out and I still got the same thing. I took a look inside my amp and there is one tube that isn't glowing and 1 that isn't glowing very bright... is this a sign that I need new tubes? or is it something else?

help please!!

s00perEDIT: also what kind and where do I get them??

Yeah I know.^ I'm going to get a whole new set! but My question is this:

Do I need 2 tubes that are both "6l6/5881" or do I need a 6l6 and a 5881 separately? because I'm finding both...
