I don't recommend passive pickups for any kind of blues tone. Ideally, you'd want a passive pickup with a reasonably low level of output.

Do you have one?
If so, clips please

Anyways, to my knowledge it doesn't have a standby. Just when it's powering up, leave your volume all the way down.

So that's the way to go with amps that doesn't have a standby switch? I see. I figured I was supposed to do that,, but I wasn't sure if it would help keeping my tube life att all. Does it work just as well as a standby switch or can I expect the tube life of my Killer Ant to be shorter even if doing this procedure?
