    This might be an idiotic question, but it's my first winter outside of Texas since I've taken up the bass. Is it better to keep my bass in a heated room or in an unheated hallway that's about 5 degrees C colder during heating season? The air is definitely more humid in the latter so I figure I wouldn't need to humidify the bass as much. But is the temperature shift a bad idea, assuming the bass doesn't go out of tune too terribly?
