Winter Amps

Hey I keep my tube amp out in our spare room and most of the time there is no heat in there so it is quite cold in there....like so cold that i tracked snow in and it didnt melt for a week, anyways, i was wondering if the extreme cold is detrimental or harmful to amps - I know i may have some problems if i bring it inside and it gets condensation on it but i have no room to keep it in my house all the time.

You shold be fine, the biggest thing is moving them around when they go from on to extreme cold.(It can break solder joints on the boards in your amp) But I doubt your doing this

I think in your situation the standby switch actually becomes important, but I'm not even positive of that. Other than that, and moving it as was said above, I don't see any issues.

I keep my Valveking in the garage or in the boot of my car & it's not broken on me yet (had it 6 years). Last year I left it overnight when the outside temperature hit minus 15.
