Studio temperature range and indirect sunlight

  1. What's up everyone how are you all??

    I have moved to a new apartment which gets afternoon sun and heats up while i'm gone to about 80 degrees. The bass is not in direct sunlight ... Nevertheless I am wondering about 365 days going through a temperature change of 65 at night to maybe even 85 in the afternoons. Would this cause issues with glue or other problems conceiveably? Should I move the bass to a part of the apartment that has a more consistent temp?

    My previous spot was colder with similar range, but more like 50 to 75.

    I'm probably overanalyzing but I thought i'd ask at least.

    I wouldn't worry at all - your bass should be just fine at those temps. ;)

    I tune my bass at home and it is still tuned playing in a garage that is 40F. Or I should say I check the tuning at both places and rarely have to change it.

    *oops sorry didn't realize this was for double bass!
