Well. Cold can make the fuzz tighter sounding. Some guys would put their Ge fuzz In the freezer, so they would work better on hot days. However, I am sure there a limits on both sides temp wise for how it will sound. When they get too hot they sound like a static splattered mess. I have heard some give the same description when too cold (around 30 or so degrees Fahrenheit). Basically Ge is a temperamental mess when it comes to temperature impacting bias. That is why lots of folks moved to Silicon transistors. How cold will it be where you are playing?

I assume or hope you're referring to transport of the pedal in your gear bag or case. I would just keep it like a guitar, i.e. if you are comfortable so are they. Same on stage, but safer on the cool side for sure. I still vividly remember an experience outdoors in the summer where I had the splattered mess Paul refers to above.

GuitarZ: They say you should be on the same page about kids before you get married. I really think you ought to talk about expectations on outdoor Christmas/Holiday lights. That could have been a game changer.
