I had a bass teacher for about 6 months, and he would say in the class that he used a mixture of carlssons and pops. He said he melted them down in the microwave. I was wondering if any of you have done this before, and if you knew what kind of container to melt them down in, for how long, and how long to let them sit before you use it again. Any other details would be helpful. I would ask that teacher again, but i am afraid i have lost contact of him. I believe he moved back east somewhere. Thanks in advance.
