amp too quiet
hello everyone, i have a peavey vtm 60 that i ve sorta been expeimenting with for a while.  
when i firt got it, it seemed a bit quiet and i figured that it just needed new tubes. (it had the original 6l6's from the 80's. it now has kt90s in it and it is still real quiet. my brothers 50 watt sovtek can easily overpower it.  
what would cause this? ive tried biasing it hotter or colder and that doesnt really do anything. im wondering if its blocking distortion, but i dont know a solution for that that wouldnt attenuate the signal from the PI.  
any help is really appreciated.
