Replacement Packs for Starter Kits for Fretted and Bowed Instruments and Woodwinds | Individually Overwrapped

Boveda 49% RH Standard Size 12-Pack Cube


Sold out

The most convenient way to keep humidity pack replacements in reserve. Prevents too much or too little moisture from damaging an instrument. Protecting an instrument, Boveda lasts for months. Overwrapped, the packs are good for up to two years! 

Using Boveda in an instrument case: 

  • Requires zero maintenance—no more filling messy hoses and snakes and wetting sponges
  • Maintains an ideal relative humidity range for instruments—45-55% RH
  • Prevents wide fluctuations in humidity that cause the wood to expand or shrink, and degrade its performance abilities

A 12-Pack of these Standard Size Boveda refills:

  • Directional Starter Kit
  • Small Starter Kit
  • Large Starter Kit
  • Single Fabric Holder
  • Double Fabric Holder



  1. Remove Boveda's plastic wrapper. (Do not open the Boveda itself.)
  2. Just slip unwrapped Boveda into the pouch(es) of its protective fabric holder. Place in case and close the lid. Always keep your case closed when using Boveda.

Always insert Boveda into a pouch of a Boveda Fabric Holder before placing in an instrument case. The fabric holder allows Boveda to last longer and work better and acts as a liquid barrier if a packet is accidentally punctured. 


  • Mix different Boveda RH levels within the same instrument case
  •  Use Boveda in the same case with other humidification products because they will fight against each other and reduce the efficiency of Boveda

To refill a Boveda Single Fabric Holder or Directional Fabric Holder: Use one (1) or two (2) Boveda 49% RH Standard Size
To refill a Boveda Double Fabric Holder: Use two (2) or four (4) Boveda 49% RH Standard Size

Each Boveda in the cube is individually overwrapped. 

Boveda will last 2-6 months depending on the time of year, your climate and your case.
Unopened package: Up to two (2) years

Do the touch test. Order replacement packs BEFORE Boveda is totally rigid to avoid a lapse in humidity protection for your instrument.
