Why doesn't the Fender Blues Jr. have a standby switch? Is it because it is small enough that the tubes don't have to warm up or something like that?

they still have to warm up for the usual 1 minute or so before they achieve full power But you just leave it on during a show there are many amps out there that dont have a std.by switch Doesnt really matter too much, though they are convenient for imidiate action on stage. I dont have one on either of my amps, and I just really leave them on during a show and mute the signal either on the guitar or on my tuner.

I don't know much about this amp, but maybe it's not all tube? Correct me if I'm wrong, but in my experience many tube hybrids don't have standby yet still take a little while to warm up once turned on.

Probably a price point choice on Fender's part.


most likely, but less components equals less noise

It still needs to warm up.
Basically, standby is a mute switch. When you start the Blues Jr, you should turn the volume down all the way for 30 seconds or so, then it will be warmed up.
There are a lot of small tube combos that lack a standby switch.

That's why it didn't work when I tried to use one.

before turning it off? Really? why is that?


If you turn it off with Vol at 10 youll hear a loud poppoing noise. Similar to the one you hear on you home hifi with the volume up and you turn of the tv Anyways, It's supposedly bad for the tubes and the transformer. I always turn down the volume to 0 before I turn it off but try it and youll hear why
