I know that if I had a question about the consequences of extreme low humidity, I would get a few lectures about cracking and I know that is good advice.
However, (if the violin survives) do very dry conditions affect the SOUND quality? I think so. At least, my violins sound definitely "brittle" in the Winter. Are Summer conditions better?
My indoor hygrometer reads 47 with 55 being nominal. My room humidifier(s) never go off unless I turn them off.
So, I wonder about what I think I hear (or is it just cabin fever?)
