It takes at least twice as long as my Germino. Is it a tube issue or just the way the Victoria is supposed to work?
That depends upon how the bias is set and the Class of operation.All tube amps sound better after being on for awhile, usually about 30 minutes of good hard playing.
Set up your amp first, turn it on, after about a minute or so take it off standby and then get out your guitar, tune it, set up any pedals etc, and you're good to go.
