Does Humidity affect your prized instrument?

Tuesday, July 20, 2010

I have been working on a new product for some time now...it is called "Humidifix".   After years of frustration trying to keep my finely tuned and adjusted instruments stable, and safe, I discovered that the only offerings for over-humidification on the market, has been silica packs that fill up and get tossed...many times, too late.  Our new product takes the guess-work out of maintaining proper Relative humidity (at 50% and above) with an on-board rechargeable system, that is readable from the exterior of the case. If the RH (relative-humidity) is say, 95%, and you want to take your banjo out to play...out-doors, and you KNOW the head, neck, and pot will absorb lots of moisture, and sound poorly in an hour or so, why not be prepared?  When a the RH is high, your banjo will slowly absorb moisture, and change in many ways...by keeping the RH at an adjustably correct amount, playability, and tone quality will be less affected.  The way you set your banjo up at 50% RH, is the way you can depend on it to play...from now on...and with the RH soaring in different parts of the country at higher than nornal rates,  that higher humidity is really something to consider....   Our system will immediately start the moisture removal from your instrument, banjo, guitar, dobro, and do it in a relatively short time. All electric and metal componants on your instrument will also be protected... The rechargeable in-case unit is a high-quality componant that will last up to 10 years. We have installled an "adjustable" internal dehydration" vent system that allows you to simply regulate the amount of H20 you want to remove  to keep your instrument at the optimum RH, 45 to 50%.  The case is kept closed with the externally viewed analog, or digital hygrometer (your chioce, different prices) included in the installation kit, so your case's "atmosphere" is not lost to constant openings when you  check for  RH conditions.  Please ask any questions you may have...as we will be offering this quality 7-year full warranty kit, with a CD including kit installation and hygrometer re-calibration instructions. This new product has been thouroughly tested and tried.  It is a confidence inspiring product, that will save the user time ,  money,  and the anxiety of worrying about the "tone" when onstage..     Call for more info...Joseph Zarola 931-707-9797  Our new domain is now under construction;   "www.humidifix.com"  We will off the system here at a special rate for BHO members.
