Moving from UK to OZ. Any tips for DB transport in container?
I am moving to oz at the end of the year. Really happy about that!
I have a nice fully carved bass (worth £3K), and its going in the container. So i have a few questions regarding transportation and what to do.
firstly, my main man 4stringfortress sorted me out a decent hard case.
Next ... its going to be 2-3 months in the case and in the container. Should i get a humidifier for the inside of the bass? Or should i me more worried about damp and mould? Should i loosen the strings ?
Last - im moving from the depths of winter here to the heights of summer there. I have heard stories of people saying 'dont take the bass out the case for a bit' as the change in temperature will cause warping and cracking of the table, back or ribs .. Is this true or just an old wives tale?
Any advice here from people who have done this on here?
