I usually play on low channel at volume at noonish during last setting alot of volume was lost and I nvr really noticed til band mate said due to my in ears... I switched to high and it seems to be all there is had to turn down... I swapped out the el84s for extras and it's the same problem... any ideas??
Also try wiggling your cord where it's plugged into the amp jack while strumming. I had a similar problem, replaced tubes etc... and found the 1/4" jack on the amp had gone bad but worked fine on the high gain switch setting. Probably someone stepped on my cable at some point. I replaced the plastic jack with a standard 1/4" metal Switchcraft jack and no problems since.

GuitarZ: Ugh! Dropped small nut while installing new outside lamp. Thought I saw where it landed. Couldn't find it. Moved the car & such. Engineering mind said, drop another (after ~hour). Bang! Within 5 seconds. Nut found! Yea! Wife Impressed!

GuitarZ: Bells & Whistles-New Cars. A year with our Subaru Outback, finally realized doors have to be unlocked for inside rear hatch button to work. Dang! I need that feature for social distancing. Looked like an idiot pulling up & jumping out to manually open.

GuitarZ: Best Pandemic Comment - Delivery guy shows up. As we're social distancing, I look at myself in brown loafers, black socks, gym shorts, t-shirt and say "I realize this is not my best look". His response "You can wear whatever you want to the apocalypse."
