    What could potentially cause an over the top distortion of bass frequencies when I play?

    It seems like all the neck pickups on my guitar have recently been sounding worse lately. There's no clarity or tightness in the low end anymore. Could this be a potential power tube going out on me? The preamp + PI are both new. Well, new old stock ;).

    The rig:

    Orange AD-30R
    RCA 12AX7 Preamp
    Mullard balanced 12AT7 PI
    Mullard 12AT7 Reverb
    Tesla NOS EL84, matched quad

    I can post clips if needed.
