    In terms of what? Are you looking for a bass? An amp?

    It's probably a good idea to be more specific with what your needs are.;)

    I'm about to buy an amp so I'm open suggestions

    (looking at a gallien krueger 700RB)

    I'm also wondering if there is anything I can do with my bass.

    When I play out doors regardless if the tempurature is hot or cold I always get really nice sustain and the harmonics are so sweet and really ring out!!! but If I play in doors even if it was colder in doors my bass would feel really sloppy and not ring at all making it hard to hold a harmonic

    (I'm dealing mostly with 12th fret harmonics)

    Well, that's a good question. It would help a lot if we knew what your setup is, from your bass, to your amp, any effects, etc. Fill in your profile and we'll have a much better understanding.

    Second, it sounds like this belongs in the "Amps" forum, rather than basses. Perhaps a moderator can move it for you.

    Anyway, in a more generic sense, if you're experiencing difficulty more inside than outside, perhaps the environment has something to do with this? Maybe there's a difference in power consistency. If this is the case, a good line regulator might make a difference.

    Or, maybe it's the bass. Maybe it's the amp.

    For amps, before you buy one, I'd suggest you try out several different models in various sizes to determine what gives you your optimal tone in your price range.

    This question is pretty much aimed at my bass not the amplifier I'm looking at.

    It does have to do with the bass because I normally warm up with the bass unplugged.

    The setup on my bass is fairly low to the to the fret board and good and fast for playing up high.

    what seems to be happening has to do with neck changes so what else other than the tempurature could change the neck?

    Wait a minute???

    how about the humidity?
