So I have a bit of a dilemma. I recently moved to a university that is near my home town (2 hour drive). The problem is that my room is incredibly small, so I don't really have room for an amplifier, or really even a bass for that matter! I have an acoustic guitar with me here, and even that seems bulky and in the way a lot of the time. There's really just not a good place to put it.
Since I moved, I've been going back to my home town nearly every weekend to try and cram in as much playing as I can (and see to see some familiar faces of course
). However, I decided that I just really would like to figure out a way to have my bass with me here, even if it meant sacrificing some space. I could use just the head portion of my amplifier and play through headphones, so that isn't my concern. My concern is that taking a bass to and from different climates might warp the wood, or require very frequent truss rod adjustments. When I moved my acoustic guitar down here, after a few days, it was obvious that it needed to be adjusted. That isn't a concern because it's just staying here, but with my bass, I would want to take it with me on the weekends as well as have it here during the week.
So basically I'm wondering how much danger I would be putting my bass in by taking it to and from college and home, in terms of the climate warping the wood. Part of me is saying that I'm being way too nervous about this haha, but after seeing what happened to my acoustic I figured I should at least try to gain some insight first. Thanks in advance for your time!
