Struggle to maintain proper RH (relative humidity) in an instrument case? Compensate for extreme conditions, use an additional fabric holder in your case if you live year round at:
Specially designed to extend the life and efficiency of humidity packs for acoustic guitars, large fretted or bowed wood instruments and large woodwinds. Boveda Fabric Holders are lined with a liquid barrier to further protect your instrument in the rare occurance a leak-proof pack is ever punctured.
HOW TO USE:
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.
Do not mix different Boveda RH levels within the same instrument case. And do not use Boveda in the same case with other humidification products because they will fight against each other and reduce the efficiency of Boveda.
HOW MANY BOVEDA TO USE:
Fill with EITHER:
- Two (2) Boveda 49% RH Size 70 for wood instruments (Packs are not included, but available separately here.)
- Two (2) Boveda High-Absorbency 49% RH Size 40 for wooden instruments in high-humidity climates. (Packs are not included, but are available separately here.)
Boveda will last 2-6 months depending on the time of year, your climate and your case.
