It's stereo amp, and I don't think it's tube. However, for a stereo amp, it is very good. Don't plug guitar into it; just use it as hi-fi if it works.

Just try streaching your hand befor playing challenging songs. Or start off by playing an easy song, then a more challenging song to get the muscles warmed up.

I try a mix of Vai's 10 Hour workout and Petrucci's off his instructional vid.

I don't warm up for long maybe....5-10 minutes but if you still feel cool, then do more.
