Peavey Deuce 212 "problem"

Ok, it's not really a problem since i managed to discover how to avoid it, but still I'd like someone to explain to me what the hell happens with my amp:

The thing is that when I turn it on, plug in my guitar and start to play with the amp volume set to 5, after 10-15 minutes the volume drops for about a minute, then come back to normal. Even if I play for 6 hours after that, it doesn't happen again. Last time, I was playing alone, waiting for my bandmates, but i set to volume relatively low (at about 2,5). No volume drop occured. When the whole band started to play and i had to set the volume to 5, then again nothing happen the whole time we practiced...

I don't understand what's happening, I've used tube amps before but I've never had that sort of problem.

Is there anyone that can explain it to me?

Sounds like the sort of thing a dodgey capacitor would do.

Either turn on your amp 10 minutes early, or get it checked out by a tech.

It isn't a 'normal' tube amp thing.

Well, for the loudness you're right, but at lower volumes heavy distorted sounds are not really good for me...They don't sound right.
