We lost power over here, while my amp was on standby. I've haven't tried it yet, but is there any chance that damage was done to it? Any input would be appreciated. Thanks!

Just playin' it safe. This amp dies and I'm screwed, so I'm being as careful as possible.

nothin wrong with checkin first

i'm not an expert on this and i am assuming you have a tube/valve amp with a power tube/valve.

you can obviously look at the tubes themselves for damage and it could be blown fuse so you may want to check that, but the bottom line is if it is blown it is blown - turning it on isn't going to make it blow up more.

i am assuming by now you have checked....sorry i walked away for a moment to brewskitize

An amp is not like a computer, where you need to go through a shutdown procedure to turn it off. Shutting down an amp involves flipping the mains switch. A power failure is essentially the same thing. Even if the outage were accompanied by a power surge, it's not likely to hurt the amp. Tube amps are pretty forgiving of voltage fluctuations.
