I was curious how much heat could be damaging to a DB. I always wonder about leaving it in a car for an hour on a hot day and storing it in my car in the garage overnight (well, haven't done that yet but sometimes its tempting on a late night). Am I doing unseen or possibly anunexpected damage surprise popping up, to my bass if I keep it in hot places. Also, there's a big change in temperature at night here and where I am playing at night, we're even putting on jackets due to the coolness. I guess this is also a question about the effect of temperatures changes on a DB too.
