When I play, the volume of my amp is fluctuating. It drops off for a few seconds and then goes back up to where it was. Is that indication of one of the tubes failing?

How old are the tubes? And yes it sounds like tube failure..
If you start a reply with: I have never played one but I have heard good things about it! Your opinion is invalid.
