mushy/distorted sound cutting in and out. Filter caps??

I have a  72 V4 and the sound comes and goes, like I said, muddy/distored and cuts in and out and doesn't sustain for long. I'm thinking its the filter caps closest to the power tubes. They look brand new tho. I opened it up and checked for cold solder joints and visible signs of bad caps and resistors but nothing. However, if I hit the filter caps the saound sometimes spikes and sounds like it should. Am I on the right track with the filter caps? Could it be just a bad solder joint since they look newly replaced? Or, is there something else I could be overlooking? Any help is much appreciated!
