The better ways to store your basses

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by chalie, Mar 3, 2005.


  1. Hi, :rollno:

    I wish to get some advice from you guys on how to store the basses. I got few basses with me and not everyone of them I play frequently.


    How should I store those basses that I play once every week

    How should I store those basses that I play once every 3 weeks

    How should I store those basses that I play once every 6 weeks

    How should I store those basses that I play once every 12 weeks


    Thanks in advance for you advice.

    Chalie

    Chalie, It would be a long drive (Detroit MI) But I'd be more then happy to store a couple for you! Serriously, you might want to post this in the luthers section . I'm sure some of the guys there could give some good advice. Hey, I'm employed, may be a I'll start a bass storage company!

    i play my Warwick everyday but i keep it in its HSC because it gets extremely dusty in my house. if i keep it on the stand for one night it looks like it's been sitting out for at least a week.

    I keep mine out on stands at all times, 'cept when I take 'em out to gig or practice. I like keeping them exposed to the environment as much as possible, because (in my mind, anyway), it keeps 'em more "used to" the elements than if I kept them in their respective cases.
