I am planning on taking my stuff into my basement soon to free up room upstairs. Of course, the basement is usually the coldest place in the house (at least mine is), so how do you maintain proper temperature and humidity throughout, 24/7? I am just very nervous about this (maybe a bit too much but would certainly like to be cautious before taking it all down there).

I am going to buy a few space heaters soon anyhow for the house, but before I get one chugging along in the basement and have my bills spike, figured some with basement setups could help if that's not the most ideal means...

Also, are amps (tube amp here) significantly affected by temperature?

Thanks.

(Apologies if this isn't the appropriate forum, wasn't sure which one would be best as it's fairly generic (mods do yer thang if need be).

It's not your amp you should worry about - it's the guitar. The wood can expand and contract (particularly with high heat and humidity) which would cause checking of the finish.

With cold, I think you'll be fine, though, provided nothing gets wet.

Hmmm, well currently I use one of these for my acoustic, refilling every week or less. Is that enough? Or will I need to shell out for a room-sized (or rather basement-sized) humidifier?

I am guessing the basement is dryer along with being colder.
