Protecting your musical instruments
Pianos and many string, plucked and wind instruments are made of fine woods in a climate with controlled humidity and temperature (usually 20 to 22 °C and approx. 40 to 55 percent relative humidity, depending on the manufacturer). It is therefore important to be just as careful at home. You must know the air humidity that your instrument will be exposed to and how much time it will need to adapt.
The quality of air humidity that your musical instruments are exposed to will significantly influence their durability, playability, sound, and appearance. It is certainly worth giving some thought to the ideal indoor climate. After all, musical instruments suffer in an overly dry environment. Not only does it strip them of their vibrant sound, but it will ultimately impair their financial value as well.
