It definitely sounds like a crapped-out power tube to me. Some 'radio shops' (not Radio Shack) actually still have tube testers sitting around; you can take all your tubes in and identify the gimp one.
Or just retube.
Hobbyist electronics shops on the bad side of town are usually good for finding older equipment like tube testers and such. When I visited my folks last month I discovered a great electronics shop that had a lot of vintage electronics.
Pics of my stuff are available here:

"I think I brained my damage."
"O.K. brain, I don't like you and you don't like me. Let's just get this over with and I'll go back to killing you with beer."
