It has been freezing in New England and running the shop humidifiers has been critical. The photo shows the only time ever that the various hygrometers have been in such agreement. RH is in the 40% range because it rained for half a day before freezing again. Usually it is a struggle to keep it above 30% with 2 humidifiers going.
But struggle you must! If you have a nice piano and are at all serious about keeping it in shape, measure and control the humidity. You have to play an active role if you don’t want bad news later. Confused? Call or email me. I’m happy to help….really!
