I just bought my 1st Tube Amp. An Ampeg V4B. Tubes get hot and if left idle with no play can decrease the life of the tube and even burn them out. Obviously the head will get warm and it smells somewhat like a burn. I only found this out because I didn't turn the standby on for a little while. Any to make it run a little cooler I had an idea to either just put a fan near it or installing electric fans in it. Has anyone ever done this and is it a good idea? P.S. I just recently got my first tube amp. An Ampeg V4B. I've had hybrids between a trace elliot ah1200-12 and an Ampeg SVT pro 3. They had fans in them and had no need for a " standby " switch. This tube amp is a little bit of A learning experience for me. Not much but I'm learning things about tube amps that I never knew before.
