I just got my Peavey Triumph 120 retubed and when playing it at band practice, the tone suddenly went to crap. It got all muffled and nasty sounding. i turned it off for a while and turned it back on and it still didn't sound right. Well, when i was transporting it back to my house it got a couple bumps in my car and when I played it at home it sounded alright, but, again, after a while it turned to crap. I'm thinking there is a loose tube or something? I was hoping someone could help me, so what do you think the problem is/what should i do?

did you retube it yourself? cus when you you change your tubes your supost to get you amp biased. it basically adjust how much power runs through your tubes. then what i did was leave it on standby for about 20 minutes just for the hell of it, im not sure if that part is neccesary though. but yea you should get it biased if all else fails take it to sam ash or w/e.

The amp has a non-adjustable bias and i got it done by a professional.

Take it back to the shop that set it up if you didn't do it yourself. If you did do it yourself, take to a shop ^^.

It's probably like you say, just a loose tube, probably no big deal. Might even be a dodgy valve that was put in.

would it more likely be a power amp or pre amp tube? I'm guessing pre amp. Also, how would I fix this myself? I'd much rather do it myself than take it back to the shop, seeing as I do have a certain degree of skill in this kind of stuff.

So it sounded good at first and then went to crap? Yeah, could be a dodgy tube, it's kinda tough to say; but if it was the bias it probably would sound bad right off the bat.
