    I was wondering if anyone else has had issues with their Ampeg SVT-2 Pro taking ages to warm up?

    I can leave if for 20-40 mins and sometimes it just won't switch onto 'on' mode. It's really odd, and a big of a nightmare. Eventually it does switch on, but it's pot luck to guess when that happens.

    Yeah, I agree. I have an SVT 2 pro and have never had to wait more than a minute. I know they do have a function in them whereby even if you flick both switches to on straightaway, the light will remain red for about 20 seconds and the amp will remain in the warm up stage.

    I'm no tech but perhaps there could be something wrong with this part of their circuit which is supposed to be a safeguard against just switching on without warm up.
