It's either your tubes or there was a change in the power level at the amp. The voltage/amps from the outlet can change depending on the demand put on the overall electric grid and that can change the sound of your amp as well.

So, the old tubes may cause the change in the power level? the problem will be resoved changing tubes?. thanks for your help.

No the actually volts or wattage coming from the outlet can change which effects the sound of a tube amp.

Keep playing as is for about a week, if it doesn't get better try new tubes.
