In-case Humidifying, Part IV

Posted by TSSN on Monday, September 28, 2020

So it turns out that, at least in the summer, in-case humidification doesn't add a whole lot to caring for my instruments.  A quick plot shows that using a single, commercially-made humidifier added roughly 5-7% to the relative humidity of the air inside the instrument.  There was little overall difference in humidity between being inside the case (and NOT inside the instrument), and the room air outside the case. 

This little experiment will be repeated in the coming winter months for the same set up of instrument, case, humidifier, and location.

Again, really nice. People so often manufacture opinions without any evidence. It is so nice to see data used to address an important issue.

I agree. I have no financial interest in the humidifier, mandolin, or case manufacturer. But I did have humidifiers lying around from a previous work experiment doing nothing.

I'm looking forward to the winter data collection, when it should really matter.
