Here is a test you can do at home for the sound. Test out the speaker. To do this you will need two alligator clips with wire about ft. long. Remove the speaker wire clips under the speaker magnet and attach the alligator clips . Take a C size battery and touch both ends of the battery. You should here a scratching sound . If you do you know your speaker is OK. Then you have a problem that needs a Technician. A good music shop should be able to give you a idea of the repair cost. Don't go to a big music change, find a small full service shop that deals with Fender. I don't think this will cost a lot. Fenders play for years, Its truly worth the bench fee. Good luck DFD , please rate me thanks

Your amplifier uses 2 tubes 12AX7WA. These tubes are not expensive (less than 10$ each) so, since you know that they are used for a long period of time, I suggest you use a brand new one set. Take a look at this link for instance. You can not troubleshoot a problem like yours if the tubes are not brand new.
In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, accept my solution.
Thanks and regards

A common reason for 'distortion' with all bass amps can be either that the screws holding the speaker unit to the cabinet have worked loose or that there has been a build up of dust particles in the corrugations around the edge of the speaker cone, which rattle especially on the lower notes.
The solution is simple - remove the front grille and check the screws are tight. Use a vacuum cleaner to remove dust from the rim of the speaker cone.

Inout connectors are often broken by tripping overr cables resulting in intermittent operation. Wiggle plug and then each pot to see if anything shows itself. Circuit board cracks and broken solder joints are suspect as well.

Deciding the date depends on what part of the amp your serial number is.
