SLO Standby usage
« Thread started on: May 23rd, 2015, 10:28am »
New SLO owner here, and I was wondering what the common practice was at cold startup and shutdown?
Years ago with an old 76 Marshall that I had, I give it about a couple of minutes or so on standby to warm up and the same after playing it before moving it. Usually longer at shut down as I'd leave it till the last to pack up.
What are your practices and why?
PS: I was actually talking to Michael Soldano yesterday, and it slipped my mind to ask him

I generally give it 30 seconds before startup and 30 seconds at shutdown. If the amp has just come out of a cold trailer I usually let it set for awhile before firing it up. Also, if it's going back into a cold trailer after a gig I'll let the tubes cool off quite a bit before packing up.
