        I should add, that's for modern designs...I can't speak for all amps, since I haven't looked into all amps. But MOST standby's I've seen don't send B+ voltage to the tubes until you take it off standby, that's when I could see tube life going down hill, because you have full plate voltage continuously...

                    Great, so looks like its OK to leave it on standby then. I just want to be able to play whenever without having to switch it ON and then wait for it to heat up.



                    Thanks All.

                        On a related note...how long does everyone leave an amp to warm up..?



                        I usually turn mine on, check the tuning on my guitar (2-5 minutes) and then go for it.....seems OK to me.

                            I usually wait about 30 seconds.



                            As for leaving it in standby, I don't think it matters.



                            I've read about tubes in stuff like old broadcasting equipment that have ran continuously for 10,000+ hours.

                                It really depends on the amp.

                                Some standby circuits don't disconnect the high voltage DC, some just mute the signal to the power amp, and some like the AC30 circuit you shouldn't use the standby at all, as it puts a large strain on the rectifier.



                                Really, you can't wait like 30 seconds for your amp to warm up?
