As the weather starts to get chilly and we keep cozy and warm, we need to make adjustments to ensure our instruments are comfortable too!
Here in the midwest, as the temperature drops, normally too comes a drop in humidity levels. This happens especially in our homes when we kick on our furnaces and send dry, warm air throughout the house. Just as we may need to put on lotion or add humidifiers to keep us comfortable, our instruments also need the added humidity to prevent cracks and open seams. Since our instruments are made of wood, they are very susceptible to humidity changes. Shrinkage cracks and/or edges coming unglued are common for instruments stored in overly dry conditions.
