I don't store my violin in it's case. It has a peg on the wall where I can see it and easily access it when I am ready to play. Trying to avoid "out of sight out of mind" since I am just a beginner. With winter on the way, we typically reduce the heat in our house and start using the ventless heater in our library so we have a couple of warmer rooms that we dwell in. The ventless heater really dries out the air in these rooms and this is the room my violin lives in. Last night it was flat, flat, flat, flat. Very out of tune. Am I harming my violin by keeping it hanging on the wall in a dry room or do I need to start storing it in it's case with a humidifier? I can't use a humidifier in the library as they tend to trigger my asthma after a while.
(I almost tagged this under the "health" heading since my question refers to the health of my violin!)
