    I was told that by keeping your bass in it's case the strings will last longer/stay brighter longer. Is there any truth to this? I always keep my basses on a stand in my bedroom.
     
  2. Your Bass should ALWAYS be in a hard case when not in use.

    Heat, humidity, temp. changes, and a variety of environmental factors will all have a negitive effect.

    Forget the strings. It's bad for the instrument.

    Fact:
    Strings oxidize faster in a humid room...

    ...While the wood swells.
