ok, this is a common topic, but im still a bit confused..

on a 5150... both switches are flicked to the right (off)

do i turn my standby or power on first?

seems like power on first would warm the tubes

OR..

is it standby on (which i understand means that sound emits from the amp)

then after a few minutes power on?

ive usually been flicking the standby switch to the left then wait a bit then power...

but when i turn on the standby, the tubes dont light up at all or i dont hear any sound..

im starrting to think ive been playing with cold tubes this whole time

first turn on power, wait a minute for the tubes to warm, then turn on standby.

Is there any black people on UG?
I don't think a lot of black people play guitar anymore.

This is what I do. Different amps using different names makes things more difficult, but basically, flip the power switch - there should be lights on now and the tubes should be warming. However, the amp will emit no sound. Then after a minute you flip the other switch and you get sound.

Just turn it on, you're not gonna blow yourself up. Wait a few moments before you play anything.
These go to eleven...

step one

step two

Wait a bit, say at least 20-30 seconds ish....
step 3 is rock out time.

step 4 is back to the step 2 position
step 5 is back to the step 1 position.
