I have a Fender Blues Deluxe reissue that I bought used about 7 months ago. I was playing today and it started to make this loud abrupt cracking noise that I then noticed resulted in a small loss of volume. I looked at the back of the amp and noticed a burning smell coming from the pre-amp tubes. Did I blow a tube out or is it something bigger? I don't know when the previous owner changed the tubes if ever. Thanks
