    push the big green one with the light behind it. then hit the one with no light behind it.
    Do the reverse to shut it off.....

    I would hire a naked girl to dance in front of the amp.

    No this is not a joke, on another thread, they said do the same way to turn it off (not reverse), just wished I could find the thread....now I'm confused

    yeh turn the mains on ..let the tubes warm up for a bit say 2 minutes then turn the half/fulll power switch .. i turn my half /full power off first ..let cool for say a minute then turn the mains off .. always turn the mains on first to let the tubes warm but shutting the amp down you can choose either way .. theres a never ending debate (tubes cooling or caps discharge etc)on that with pros and cons both ways..anyways fine for the amp really though ..

    I can end that debate by saying that it does in fact matter.

    When you turn the amp off, reverse the procedure. But here's the thing, wait for atleast 30 seconds, otherwise there's no point to do it, if you just turn off both quick it's the same thing as you just turn off the mains first.
