Just read about a technique for aging a new bass (in this case, Chinese)quickly by standing it in front of its own amplifier, adjusting volume to create moderate feedback, then leaving it to quietly scream at itself for a few days! Does anybody know anything about this? Is it really likely to improve the tone by accelerating the aging/maturing process...or is it more likely to wreck your amp, and seriously upset the neighbourhood? I can`t believe that vibration alone is involved in the gradual improvement of tone in an older instrument. The guy seemed serious and genuine.
