so i was playing just for a a little bit then i put down my guitar, i must have lost my train of thought becasue i didnt play for the rest of the nite which is really no big deal. so then i get up the next morning go out for a run, i come back in my room. why is the light on. i start freaking out, i have just left my tube amp on for about 14 hours straight. without standby on. im such a moron. and i started to play it today thank god it still worked however there is alot less of everything i noticed that alot of the treble is gone, great just what i needed lol. im sure im not the only one here that has been an idiot like me and done somehting really stupid like that. and also i wanted to put a post cause i really havent been on here in awhile.

I have a tube amp and have an attenuator box right in front of the on/off switch & red "on" light. I've left my amp on mistakenly maybe 5 times for about 20 hours. Everyone makes mistakes.

Your not speaking from experience I hope?

Look on the bright side - at least, you woke up the following morning.

I started with nothing - and I've still got most of it left.

Goats and handcuffs aside, it should have done nothing to the amp. It was just sitting there warm. Maybe you reduced the overall lifetime of the amp by a few hours, but we don't know exactly what that is anyway.

There are pros who play amps at high levels for many many hours when they perform, and I don't know what they do to the equipment they practice on. (Where's Joe? I think I've seen him mention many times that he often leaves amps on for days on end).

That's a good point Vink.

The goat on the other hand, will have to be put down.
