Boveda...violin case and room humidifier
My new lutheir (who restored my lovely 18th century instrument) recommends I use both a room and case humidifier this winter as I live in an older apartment. I've the room humidifier and a controller. Currently I'm doing the saline tests for my room and case hygrometers so I know how far off they really are.
I also have a Boveda...but I just don't like the idea of having it touch my instrument. My Bobelock has several internal compartments, one of which is large enough to fit the Boveda. Would it be effective to have it in that compartment? The lid to that compartment is quite tight fitting, unsure that actually matters.
Thanks! My instrument has had open seams and cracks in the past and I want to do what I can to hopefully prevent a repeat from the winter weather.
I used to use boveda and was also concerned about them touching my instrument, so I used
It came with a pouch - it was packaged for use in a wooden instrument case. Perhaps that isn't a concern with the pouch. My Bobelock case also came with a little round hygrometer that fits in the lid and I will experiment with that as well. I purchased the Boveda last year and before I realized that it was too large to fit my previous case.
I really like this humidifier for inside cases.
