    I recently got a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe, and until tonight was quite happy with my amp.
    However tonight while playing with my Jazzmaster with p90s, in mid song without me noticing it went from nice clear overdrive to a rather unpleasant breakup, much less distinct. It was almost as if I blew the amp or the speaker, however the speaker seems fine.
    there seems to be no volume loss, just a loss in dynamic, and clean tone.

    Any ideas, as it did not sound like this until it seemed I pushed the amp a bit to hard.

    could it be preamp tubes? or speaker? Or worse...... :/

    Well, I had a similar thing happen to me way back with an HRD and it was a cold solder joint. Took it to a tech and they fixed 'er up.
