I'm currently looking for my first bass, mostly to play folk music. I often play guitar at festivals and camping events - in a tent somewhere in the middle of a field - and I'd like to be able to play bass in this environment too. Should this affect my choice of bass? Would a laminate be happier with the cold and damp than a fully-carved bass or hybrid? I'll always be able to keep the bass out of the rain and put it in my car when it's not being played, but I don't want to ruin my bass with a couple of hours of playing in the cold, and staying in tune as the temperature drops would be a benefit too. Thanks for any help you can give!
