Standby switch on HT20 Studio combo info:
Remember that on the ht20 studio combo there is no visible standby switch,what happen's is when you remove the guitar input from amp,that is what put's the amp into standby
so turn amp on at the wall then on amp,wait for it to heat up tubes.
then plug guitar lead into input and play.
when shutting down unplug guitar from input then turn off amp switch
then turn off and remove from wall plug.
Very Happy

Aussie (don't know how to quote), isn't it enough just to turn off the master volume before switching off the amplifier ?

And, the setting I've just found for a "true" crunch: put the gain at the minimum and the overdrive volume at 4/5 o'clock ( almost symmetrical), bass and treble at 1 o'clock and middle at 2. With a stratocaster, of course !

( I'm french, hehe. )

It depends in how the amp is well designed...if you don't hear a big "clang", it can be enough...i had a Vox with no standby which was just crap and did a "bang" even with the master out...blackstar's seem to be very well constructed.
But it will always be safer to first let your amp warm with no cable plugged in it, and you can keep your settings, just plug and play...

And welcome !! cheers

hi,no the master volume has nothing to do with turning off this amp,just unplug guitar and then turn off amp,then power at wall,you don't even have to turn down guitar volume either,when i have a break i just unplug the guitar input half way out,that put's amp into standby,then just plug back in when i'm ready to play,i don't change any knob's at all in all processes,i tried your setting as well...pretty good with my strat too!.......welcome to the forum,hope you enjoy Very Happy
