    Not sure If I'm posting this in the right place but, My tube amp has been getting a crackle once in a while It didn't bother me too much it's been going on for about a year even if the amp is on and no playing today thanksgiving no sound the preamp tube died its not lit up so I guess I should have had tubes on hand I ordered a russian 12ax7 from sweetwater and have to wait bummer Now I know what a bad tube sounds like.

    Tubes don’t last forever, it’s part of the game. I generally keep a bunch on hand just to be able to play with the tone of an amp.
