: How often do you guy's have to tune your bass? Mine goes *WAY* off tune in a day so I have to put it back every time I play it, is this normal?
Um...no, I don't believe that's normal at all. I can understand how it would happen if you repeatedly alternated it between warm and cold climates (It stretches and shrinks the strings), or if you're constantly putting it in a gig bag/case (Mine always emerges out of tune and I have to retune it). Other than those exceptions, though, something's wrong.
Are the strings old? If so, try slapping on a new set (You would be amazed what this fixes). If not, you should probably have it taken to a shop and examined.
Hope this helped...
