Tip of the Month: August

As we move into a new season it is critical to maintain proper humidity in your instruments.  Too much humidity can cause warping and swelling . Too little humidity can cause dryness and cracking of the finish and glue .The ideal humidity level of a room  where your instruments are stored should be maintained between 40-50%.

A simple device called a hygrometer that can be purchased from us displays the humidity level. In large rooms a de-humidifier can be used to lower humidity to the proper level. In the instrument case itself there are a few different options that we can offer to help maintain proper humidity. Give us a call or email us if you need more information.
