Traynor YGL-3 Mark 3 question


I have been playing bass for 20 years, yet I'm still completely ignorant about gear.

I have recently found the most amazing bass tone by playing a Traynor YGL-3 mark 3 head 100-watt tube head with an impedance of 4 ohms run parallel with a Traynor TS-98 9x8" speaker cabinet (rated 8 ohms and 150 watts) and a custom-built cab with an 18" EV speaker (rated 8 ohms and 200 watts).

It played beautifully for one month (I play at very loud volume 3 times a week) and then the fuse in the Traynor head started to trip, indicating a blown power or rectifier tube.

My question is the head not powerful enough to run both speakers or was the tube just ready to blow?

I also use some pedals that boost the signal quite a bit (sans amp, blue beard fuzz pedal & Pog 2 pedal).

Thanks for any and all feedback!!
