? tube standby !DANGER!

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by KingOfAmps, Feb 19, 2003.


  1. Early on I was told to always be certain to have a speaker cabinet (load) connected to a tube amp before turning it on. I've always followed this.

    But what about in standby mode? Can I go to standby and then disconnect the cab then reconnect to a different cab and then switch out of standby?

    Or will somethin' go thermal? :eek:

    I paid for all my gear myself. Well, me and MasterCard.
    Swapping cabs in standby is cool. But be sure to let the amp sit for a minute after you put it in standby - it could still be live for a few sec. after you flip the switch.
