It could be oils from the skin burning up on the glass of the tube. Nothing to worry about unless the amp stops functioning, or the smell gets stronger.

its not too uncommon on valve amps and it isnt anything too sinister. as long as it isnt full on smoking it should be fine.

...Or you could go Angus Young on it... play it 'til it quits.

^most places just charge a flat bench fee if they're just checking on it...between 35-70 USD usually. If they find something wrong, they'll usually tell you how much on top of the bench fee it'll be to fix it.

If all your tubes are glowing the same brightness (i.e. not hot plating), and the amp sounds fine...and you don't see smoke...I wouldn't worry about it. But better safe than sorry I guess
#12
should i keep this amp and try to figure out whats wrong or return it and get another one?

How can you troll Craigslist?

And just get it checked out and see what they have to say.

Is it really smoke you smell? Because with my Twin Reverb when I get my head close to it I can smell something that isn't like anything else I can think of. It's the smell of tubes working.

Trolling has two definitions.

The intended definition would be you browse Craigslist obsessively, like trolling (or trawling) for fish.

The other would be posting obscenely low prices on things and not taking calls on them.

did you forget to take any wrappings off the tubes?

or maybe there was padding inside that wasnt removed or you forgot to check for?

or maybe its just because the tubes are new and probably havent been to operating temprature for long periods of time before.
