Hey UG, I think i've encountered the first problem with my newly acquired Fender Hot Rod Deluxe

I'll be playing guitar, then when i'm done i'll go over and switch off both the power and standby switch at the same time. I'll let the strings ring so there is noise going through the amp, but when I turn the switches off, the amp continues to make noise for about 2-3 seconds and im still able to play.


What the heck is going on? Some sort of failure with the switches or something? I really can't kill this amp it has less then 5 hours on it. Should I take it to my tech or what?

HELP.

Just let it cool down in standby before turning it off completely, it won't do it.

It's not going to cool off in stand by. Standby mode is for warming the tubes. Unless you're talking comparatively cool off, which is negligible. Stand by is more useful as a volume mute, to be honest; and yes, it is fairly normal that you still hear sound for two to three seconds, as the electricity leaves the circuit during that time.

Next time, put it on stand by, wait about ten or fifteen seconds, and then turn your amp off.

Basically this. I could go into the science behind it but really that's all you need to know. Even 10 seconds in Standby after you stop playing should be enough.

What? Seriously? You're complaining that you can hear the strings as your turn your amp off? That's not a problem, that's how amps are.



No, my amp was *supposedly off* and it was still making noise. I was able to play with the amp in the off position. But it's okay, its fine now.

Yeah. The tubes are still warm so they can still make noise. Perfectly normal. It's not the electricity that makes the noise its the heated plates in the tubes that make the noise. The electricity just heats the tubes. So even after the power is cut off, the tubes are still warm, and thus can still drive the speaker. After they cool down it'll be fine.

The resonant frequency of the clitoris is too low for the guitar players to take care of.
