Hey guys. this morning i plugged in to my VK, and played for a while. i then thought i turned it off and went to school.

During maths first period, i realised i had left it on, shat myself and called my mum to turn it off.

so im curious if youve ever left your amp running on standby for a LONG period of time.

thanks.

Yeah I've left my VK on for a while, never more than overnight though. I usually leave my Champ on FOREVER because the light is on the back, so I constantly forget and go off to class and don't even notice until my room mate goes to bed and I can see the light glowing under the table.

Apparently you get more gain out of an amp by leaving it on for a few hours (my rhythm guitarist and his Valveking swear by this)
I left my 6505+ on for a whole weekend by accident once, and hell, it sounded sweet
ohai little sig.

that's quite interesting
sex, drugs, and rock and roll have turned into aids, needles, and techno..

i wouldn't recommend it but doubt it'll do much harm for just a day or so, just minus that time for the amps overall life expectancy.

alot of electronic things these days crap out after a certain small no. of yrs, and though i'm hopeful, i'd hesitate to think that modern guitar tube amps are much different.

life is uncertain, things are meant to be enjoyed =)

i'm more concerned about the state of my hearing than the life of my amps tubes hehehe

I left my Gibson Goldtone GA-30rvs on for almost two days once. It is a Class A 4 x EL84 amp. The thing kept the room warm...lol.
