FYI, it's usually the power tube that goes out. Do a search on this forum on topics like checking tube or something like that. Also, if your amp is not a Class - A valve amp, you gonna have to get the new tubes bias. So bringing it to a tech might not be a bad idea.

BTW, how you liking that MXR delay pedal??

I'd change the preamp tubes while you're at it. Look into some Tung-sols! Great all around, tone, low microphonics problems, good gain.

Read the "Everything you need to know about tubes" sticky on this site, he covers most brand and type of tube and their characteristic.
