how long do you let an amp warmup?
i got a fender blues jr off ebay
and its not playing with my guitar plugged in
but it plays when its hooked up through my boss od-20 pedal but its scratchy

thanks guys

turn it on, wait 60 seconds or so then go. it takes a few (10-20) minutes to really get hot though when the tubes get their real tone.

your supposed to let it warm up for at least 30 seconds, its not REQUIRED, but your tubes age much faster if you play it while their warming up.

It should come on in just a few seconds, but itll take longer to sound good.

sounds like he would have tried for a bit longer than you're twenty second warm up time, check tubes perhaps?
