Humidity Meter For Bass Guitar.....
Is it worth buying one of those humidity meters?
Humidity is a factor affecting the woods used to build the bass.....
Are there critical points of concern as to the humidity level at any given period throughout the year?
Is there a "normal" zone?
Is a place that has fluctuating humidity harder on guitars than a place that is (a) dry all the time ....or (b) high humidity all the time?
I have one in my basement and try to keep the room between 45 - 50%.
I have been told it's acoustics and hollowbodies that are most susceptible to fluctuations. I notice it in the action when the humidity goes outside of my desired range.
My local guitar shop has four humidifiers running 24/7 right now because of this really cold dry weather we've been having here in Ontario.
I have a remote meter inside of my Martin acoustic so I can monitor the temp and humidity without opening the case it's around 51% inside the case.
