Prevent Your Sound Board From Cracking This Winter !


Recommended Posts

Note that the Humistats require distilled water. I think I might have clogged one by using regular water. I ordered and have two more, but I've ended up using something that a c.net member suggested.

 

I use a camera bag for my concertina, so there's a bit of extra room in there. I've taken four of the little plastic containers I get prescription medicine in, but some absorbent material in them (some I used cloth, some I used paper). I had initially drilled holes in the caps, but I don't use the caps any longer. I wet the absorbent material, drain out the excess, and put them in the bag, which I zip tightly. The excellent little humidity gauge I bought with my Humistats shows that the humidity runs 40-50 percent, even if the room humidity is much lower. I do have to be careful to keep things upright, of course, and I am careful not to have excess water.

That point had passed me by. Thank you.

Hm! I think I might give this a go. I have loads of old plastic 35mm roll-film canisters (remember 'film' cameras anyone?).

I think a little tightly rolled and moistened muslin inside the canister, and a couple of holes in the lid might lead to an

acceptable substitute device. We shall see...

 

Thank you.
