I've been noticing that my Vox AD50VT doesn't really pack that 'kick' anymore. The tone seems to have faded and has become quite muddy. What could this mean? Could it be time for a new tube or speaker?

new speaker could help
Ibanez -> Peavey -> Eardrums

Apparently I'm on some list of people to listen to..?

TRY THIS FIRST

Reboot your amp. Check the owners manual about how to reset the amp. It worked for me

The rebooting thing didn't really help...

I don't think that the tubes ever have to be replaced. They have like less than 1 watt going through them. You could however need a new speaker. Play around with the setting a bit. It may just be in your head. Sometime I feel that I get a great tone and then the next day I don't like it as much.

If its not in your head, time for a new speaker.

Maybe your guitar cable is getting old?? Maybe theres loose wires somewhere.. Have the amp fixed under warranty if you have one.

i feel like the same thing happened to mine. i need to have it cranked up very loud in order to get a good tone out of it and it is very muddy i think. no idea what it is.

Could be your speaker if you damaged it somehow, or it was faulty. Celestions are usually pretty good though at handling abuse though. A new preamp tube couldn't hurt if you're famliar with working on one, plus they are only like $7-8USD a piece for balanced ones. Stands to reason if they can go bad in a regular tube amp, they could go bad in a hybrid, it's still the same old technology. How much tone they "actually" generate in any hybrid is another story I guess. It would be best if you could get it serviced under warranty though like said.

Could also be your ear is getting more picky, that happens too unfortunately.
