I've heard its bad to let tube amps get cold because the tubes might crack or something like that. I'm moving tomorrow and my head will be out in my van overnight. I'm in New York, so its like 30F here. Is this bad?

I mean, what do touring bands do? They dont keep their stuff indoors all the time, right?

I have a feeling this is a really dumb question.

Nah it should be fine, just dont leave them in extreme temperatures for prolonged periods - That's only -1.1 degrees C which is roughly what us Brits get for 70% of the year.

The one thing you need to worry about is moisture. When the amp warms up condensation can form and cause arcing which could damage the amp. Make sure you give it a give it some time to warm up before turning it on so than any condensation inside will have evaporated.

Kevin speaks the truth.

Cold won't affect it really...

cold by itself shouldn't hurt it,

dont feel stupid for asking something like that, its your investment, you should be able to ask whatever you want.
