Back in the day(1970s) we always used the standby feature, for many years. Typical lineup was: 2 twin reverbs (normal channel for presence), Fender 400PS with one or two double 15 cabinets (bass), Hammond B3/Leslie, and two tower Kustom PA. We used the standby for stage effect.

Our routine was like this:
Take to stage, decide on opening tune,
Take B3 out of standby, Leslie makes a “breathing” sound when ready,
A timed sequence starts here, about 4 to 6 seconds:
All Fenders and PA switched off standby at the same time; makes all the lights in the club flicker…
PA reverb OFF, single stage light ON,
“Good evening ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the Office lounge”…
All stage lights ON, PA reverb ON,
Wap!!! Johnny B Goode!!!!! Right between the eyes…
Place goes wild every time.

Don’t recall damaging the amps at all, and we drove them hard.

Yep, in the 70's, all your tubes were built in the USA, and replacements were available in every little town that had at least a TV repair shop, and they all did.

Thanks for sharing some of your trade secrets, and fond memories from the sounds of it. 8)

And, in those days, the 6L6 was not as expensive!
