i feel like my amp is lacking the tone it used to possess

im in a band and the other guitarist has an identical amp, on the same settings it seems cleaner, seems to have more head room, the tubes glow fiercely, and it sounds a bit more trebbly

my amp seems, for lack of better words, "bleh"

i have been using the drum machine and the boss rc-2 with my recordings and my friend said that popping could **** up the speaker. Could the be the issue here? or do i need new tubes because my just glow, his practically radiate, is the rc-2 harmful to the amp? what should i do

Yeah take it to a tech to make sure, but just ask for a quote. if it's just a tube change (AND YOU KNOW WHAT YOU'RE DOING) then just change for some newies.

It's more than likely a tube issue, but know that different tubes and different bias settings will have a great effect on how bright it glows.
