Hey UG,
Recently i just picked up a silverface deluxe reverb, which i have had no problems with at all. After an angry sister came and told me to turn it off, i flipped it on standby and heard a popping sound. I know that this common for some tube amps, primary fenders, but i flipped back in the on switch almost immediately following that.

I heard a loud buzz and hum, a sound like an amp on a lead channel or something. i can kind of hear the guitar coming through, but not loud enough at all. can someone tell me what is going on?

thanks ahead of time

Check the tubes, would be the obvious first answer. Are they all powering up?

And I greatly envy your SF DR. It's my ideal amp
Hopefully I'll find one sometime next year.

i've been checking them, and none are cloudy or anything.

i had a theory; is it possible that tubes can start to burn pretty hot, so hot that when the amp is turned off, or the volume is turned down, they can continue to "act" as if they are at a higher volume while at a lower one? maybe like trying to be 10 at 2. i don't know i may be crazy haha.

but thank you it really is one of the greatest amps i've played. i hope you get one also!
