So i'm waiting for my new amp head and cab to arrive (tomorrow Bugera 6260 + matching cab).... i've had a tube amp before so i know about the standby system, and know not to turn the head on without a speaker load. Once all thats taken care of, how do i go about 'breaking the amp in'? Should i run it at a certain volume before cranking or?

Thanks. =]

with a brand new cab, you need to break in the speakers.
play lightly at first with the volume low.
then start turning up the volume, but don't crank it up right away.

This is fairly important. Brand new speakers need to be eased into loud volumes. Don't just put the amp as loud as you can stand it minutes after turning it on.

And really, spend your day finding tones you like. Do that over a couple hours and your speakers will relax nicely, then louder volumes are free and clear.
