My amp sounds hollow

I changed the valves in my Laney GH100L and now it sounds really hollow and tinny, I haven't had the change to turn it up but is this due to the different tubes, (sovteks) or does it need rebiasing, unfortuantly due to space i have to have a 1X12 i will try it with a 4X12 later.

I only changed the preamp valves

Changing preamp tubes does not require a bias job, that is only required when changing power tubes.

Could be a bad tube somewhere. Put the old ones back in and start doing the process of elimination test to figure out which new tube is the culprit, if any.

Make sure you swapped the tubes out with an equivalent type as well.
