cellopera Posted May 10, 2020 Report Share Posted May 10, 2020 After reading about humidity on Mr. Burgess’ website a few years ago, I have become very careful in managing my instruments. Bought a room humidifier, a stretto case humidifier (comboed with Dampits) and case/room hygrometers. I started to notice the low humidity levels in rehearsal and concert halls, as low as 21% this past winter. Even though I was very careful, my Cello has opened seams for the second time this year (January/May). Fortunately, the two places that became unglued this time are not as bad, approx. 5 cm in length. Are these sudden differences in humidity levels going to affect a Cello in the long term? When I open the case the hygrometer usually reads between 42-55% and by the time I finish the rehearsal it reads under 30%. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
