^Yes, you'll need to wait 20-60 seconds depending on the amp. Some amps warm up more quickly than others.

I'm getting a tube amp soon and was told to turn on the power, wait thirty seconds, and turn the standby off. Which is correct?

Yes, you turn the power switch on and then then flip the standby switch to on.

What he's saying is first you turn the amp on in standby then you turn it on all the way.

To clear any confusion:

First flip the power switch to on

Next Wait 30 seconds or so

Last flip the standby switch to on.

There's been a lot of misguided information in this thread so far. You're going to first start off with your power off, and your standby switch facing the exact same way as the power switch. Unless your amp's standby is backwards or something. You will then switch the power on, and wait about 30 secs or so and then flip the standby so it's the same way as the power. Usually I kick my amp on, then make sure everything is set up the way I want, tunings, pedals, etc and then I just flip the standby. By then it's usually been anywhere from 30 secs to 3 mins, which is plenty of time.

When you kick the standby switch the same way as the power, you should have sound. If you don't, kick it the other way. If you have sound now, you need to have the switched opposite of each other when doing what I described. Also, when I turn off my amp, I do it in reverse order. It's not going to help the amp cool down since the heaters are still on, but it gets the amp ready for the next power up. Some amps don't have standby switches, such as my Blues Junior. I generally just unplug the cable from the amp whenever it's off or it's warming up. In that case, I turn it on, do my order, then plug my cable into the amp.
