Ibanez also uses a NuTube in the new Tube Screamer.

The 'Bright' capacitor C41 is 680 pf.
You could try a lower value, like 220pf.

I am stuck on the squirrely voltages on Q8.

Q8 according to the schematic:
B:Not specified (47K from ground, it's an NPN transistor so I would expect minimal Vdc)
C: +38Vdc
E: -1Vdc

Q12 should have a negative voltage on the base: 0.6Vdc

(You do have the schematic don't you?
The expected static voltages are well marked.

Not too sure what you are seeing.

Reverb output ic looks good but Q8 base looks bad.
That makes no sense unless Q8 is toast.

Q10 should have +49 Vdc on it.
Q11 should have +1.2 Vdc on it.
Which leads me to believe Q10 is bad.

You have more problems here than I think you can solve on a forum.

What does the signal look like at the base of Q8?
Q10?
Q11?
Q12?
Take care that the specified 250mv AC signal into Q8 is NOT exceeded.

What does "Q8 is irregular pattern" this mean?

First of all, you need to be aware that this amplifier configuration is called 'The Widow Maker'.
The ac mains voltage is directly coupled to the rectifier.
There is not a transformer to supply the secondary voltages.
To work on and operate these safely you must have an isolation transformer that would separate the mains voltage from the amp (110-110Vac)

Follow the signal into the power amp.
You do have a scope, correct?
What does the signal look like at the base of Q8?
Q10?
Q11?
Q12?

So you feel the output is 'low'.
What is the maximum Vac out into an 8 ohm load before clipping?

Other than having the designators wrong on the outputs and the leg assignments wrong on the Negative outputs, I see nothing majorly wrong with the static voltages.

The schematic indicates a 225mv AC signal entering the amplifier.
What value do you read coming in there?

Where is the schematic?
Can you please post it?
On the last three transistors, what are the designated 'Q' numbers?

Not too sure what you are attempting to fix here.

Yes there is a small x over notch at higher settings.
I really doubt that you could here that.

What I see from the image is a gross mismatch in the top & bottom width of the waveform.
THAT will be noticeable.

Can you take a picture of the distortion as it appears on a scope?

If so, upload it.

The issue needs be to better defined.
Shuts off as in the front indicator goes out?
