So, i just came home from band practice, with my amp in my trunk. I have a jet city JCA50 head. Anyway, i noticed random drops in gain and power, as well as a scratchy sound on the clean channel. I'm guessing (or rather hoping) that its the tubes. But i have no idea if its the power or the preamp tubes. The amp has 4 12ax7's and 2 6L6 tubes.

I'm wondering if i can just drop in another set of tubes without rebiasing the thing? I don't have the knowledge or the tools to rebias it anyway, and i dont feel comfortable opening it up. Changing the tubes would be alright tho. Would i need to use the same tubes that were already inside to simply replace them (it still has the stock tubes), or can i just switch them with any tubes of the same type, regardless of the manufacturer? Or will that require a rebias?

Of course this problem couldnt come at a more perfect time, since i have a gig on saturday, and i need to fix this as soon as possible. Thanks for the anwsers in advance!

yeah you can just drop some in, but it will perform best if you rebias it.

It does sound like a tube issue, buy a new power tube set and 2-3 12ax7 to roll through it
