You probably should change that ceramic cap I see between an output tube and a driver tube. At least that's what it looks like. Ceramic caps are not good at coupling audio. They tend to change capacitence and be piezeoelectric and mucks up the music some.

The important bit is the green wire (ground) which MUST be firmly attached to the chassis.
