It's so you can warm the tubes up before playing sound through the amp.

after you turn on the amp, you leave it on standby for 30 seconds before playing, unless you wanna burn out your tubes faster

Head and Cab for $130? You don't need a head and cabinet, you need a psychological examination.

make sure you turn to standby before you turn the amp off, at least for me to turn it on you turn the on/off switch off while the on/standby switch is in standby and let the tubes warm up then you turn that switch to on. To turn off just turn into standby first then off.

Well it is also something that's good to use when you're about to open the amp up, to say change the tubes. What it does is that it discharges the caps basically. Meaning that if you're about to open the amp, switch to standby and then off (you should aways do it like this, but now it's extra important), since it will discharge the caps, not risking your life or amp (or at least decreasing the risk).

It takes more than that to discharge the caps. The purpose of standby is to warm the tubes nothing more.
If you start a reply with: I have never played one but I have heard good things about it! Your opinion is invalid.
