Hey y'all, I am the year-long proud owner of an Egnater 15w tweaker half-stack. and recently my amp "broke". By "broke" I mean that randomly while I was playing my amp's volume cut to such low volumes that I thought the sound cut out completely, but if I turn the volume and gain all the way up it sounds barely loud but clearly audible. I tried plugging straight into the amp with multiple guitars, different cables, but the problem keeps coming up. Do I need to replace my tubes? If I do which ones? My power amp tubes light up fine, and I can't see my preamp tubes' lights. Is this not usual for a tube blowout? Could it be something else?

Highly probable but try this first. Pull out each valve and plug them back in again.

I would say tubes, yes. They use a pair of 6V6 power tubes and a pair of 12AX7s

Whether a tube lights up or not is no indication whatsoever of if it is working. I have plenty of worn out 6V6 power tubes that light up just fine.
