    Off Topic Question about Tubed guitar amplifiers.

    I understand this is an art website but i figured seeing as this is an off topic question and music is in the classification of 'The Arts' i'd put it in the lounge.

    I've just picked up my Peavey 6505+ amplifier and i'm just trying to iron out the details of what the correct process is when turning a Tubed Amplifier on and off?

    First standby, let the tubes warm up (Depending on your tubes the time will vary, then power.

    Honestly I usually just turn both the knobs on right away. It's not the correct way, but I don't wanna be a snob about it. My tubes are still fine.

    cheers man i was looking on a few forums and i saw someone mention something about an average waiting time of (1 second = 1 watt) so for my 120watt head they suggest 2 minutes.
    but there was a big argument over it so i decided to look elswhere and make a recent post.
    thanks for the quick reply.
