I love my Peavey XXX 1x12 combo, but for the last few months it's really been unpredictable. Seems like after a couple of sets, the volume drops. I took it to a factory authorized repair center, and they put a load on the transformer for a long time and couldn't find anything wrong with it.
I know it isn't just me. The dirty looks I get from the other band members is testimony to the fact that there's a problem somewhere.
I'm debating trying new tubes. I bought it as NOS is 2009, but my buddy tells me that it isn't a sign of tubes going bad. I'm told they tend to get microphonic when going bad.
So, now I'm on the hunt for something different. Breaks my heart really, because I love that amp.
So, I play Ibanez and Carvin guitars with DiMarzio pickups. I play anything from country to Guns & Roses, so I need versatility.

While I'd love to tell you to buy a better sounding amp, that totally sounds like old, tired power tubes.
