I am a former violin player from Iowa and am now a practicing interior architect. I have a client that owns many violas, violins and classical guitars. She lives in a very dry climate and uses a hygrometer in her cases. Because of the number of instruments she owns, keeping them all at proper humidity is very time consuming. She travels frequently to play in different orchestras and would like to have a more 'automated' system of keeping her instruments at their proper humidity when she is not at home.
My question to all of you: Has anyone ever used a walk-in style humidor (the type used for cigars) to keep instruments at proper humidity? Does an instrument specific humidor exist? I am considering installing one in her instument room. This solution is appealing to my client. Money is not a barrier for this client and she will install any system that will protect her collection.
