Fizz? Tone not satisfactory?

Or like a hiss? Noise?

Like a fizz that's barely noticeable. I think it's tonal rather than sign of malfunction. Happens only when I play.

Are you playing at a quiet bedroom volume? My amps are a bit fizzy in the highs until I turn them up a little more.

Fairly quiet, yet. It's a 50 watt combo.

If the amp has stock tubes you might want to change them. Preamp tubes in particular. Try a set of JJ ecc83 tubes in it and see if the amp tames a bit.

*edit* wait, 50 watts. Its one of the older Diavlos then?

What tubes are in those? The American Randalls use good tubes but I don't know what their Chinese ones have. What does it have? If they are Chinese tubes and labelled 12AX7A, that is likely to be your source of trouble. If they are MIC labelled 12AX7C it won't be the problem but if they are 12AX7A, rip 'em out and replace them with JJ's.

Speaker could be it too. What's in it? We need more info.

yes it will. snag a set of jj's and throw them in. over time pick up some other 12ax7 tubes to experament with, but i highly recomend a jj 5751 for the PI to controll the amp a little more.

Ruby what? Ruby can be anything. What's the full code written on the tubes?

they were ruby 12ax7ac5 HG and yes i know that ruby tubs can and are just about everything. they are rebrands and they also sound like shit thats why they were swapped out.

They're actually not a bad tube. They're 9th gen Sinos.
