Is it bad to turn the power on your amp off when your down before activating the standby switch?
I turned my amp off while the standby was off and it crackled and need to know if that was bad.

I usually wait about 10 seconds, because when I do it right away there is a thump and crackle from my cab.......

I wouldn't have described 60s Vox amps as low end.
Any amp using an indirectly heated rectifier valve doesn't or shouldn't have a standby, they're not required for SS rectified valve amps either.

So do you guys turn off standby after it warms up, or do you play with standby on?

Is the process - Power - standby - wait a couple minutes - turn standby off?
