WARNING: Tube/Valve amplifiers use potentially LETHAL HIGH VOLTAGES.
Building, troubleshooting and testing of these amplifiers should only be
performed by someone who is thoroughly familiar with
the safety precautions around high voltages.
hey guys, when I first plug into my amp it sounds like crap with the volume low, but better with the volume up. BUT, when I play continuously for a while the amp just starts to wail, does it usually take 15 mins or so to warm up the tubes? its aguitar amp btw
I have to agree. The normal heater warmup time is around 11 seconds. All my stuff sounds great after 5 min. I haven't really paid attention to the time. Do not leave the stuff on 24/7. That's just not smart at all.
