So, while setting up for our last gig my amp decided it was time to be a douchebag and pretty much die on me. All of a sudden the lead channel on my head was sounding EXTREMELY muddy and much lower in volume, and my clean channel was barely audible. The amp was feedbacking like there was no tomorrow.

Can anyone help me figure out what the problem is and how to fix it?

I have a Peavey Valveking head (yes, not the best i know)

sounds like a bad powertube since it's happening on all channels.

I'd bring it into a shop and have them look, they'll know best.

how do i go about checking the tubes though? Just replace them?

If you're asking that, for the sake of the amp it's probably best you don't do it yourself. That's the kind of thing I personally wouldn't want an amateur to do.

Take it into a shop, because if it's your power tubes which need replacing, they need to be re-biased; which is difficult. So I'd recommend getting a professional to do it.
