Humidity question

May 29, 2020, 2:11 PM · I have been forced into the basement to play during the hot muggy days of summer. Normally I would be upstairs in a well-ventilated room where I felt comfortable hanging my violins on the wall, but I'm concerned about the humidity downstairs. It's nice and cool, but I suspect there is some moisture in the air contributing to that effect. I have a temp/humidity meter I am about to use as a measure, but is there a certain range above and below which I should aim for...a general range for the space itself, not the humidity level in the cases?
