Stretto® Humidifier for Violin or Viola

Item# S1010

$30.00

In Stock

The Stretto from Switzerland is simply the most effective system for maintaining a safe and consistent humidity level in a case's interior. The Stretto bag effectively humidifies for up to two weeks. When ready to rehydrate the bag, simply re-soak in water (use distilled water for best results). Benefits to the player include an instrument safer from the risk of cracks, more consistent performance, and bow hair that does not dry and shrink (causing higher tension risking warpage or even tip breaks). Charles AvSHARian, CEO of SHAR, says about the Stretto: "I highly recommend the Stretto system to advanced players and professionals as it is without question the best humidifying system available. The humidifying bags are easy to use, and last up to two weeks without any maintenance. For those with valuable instruments and bows, I believe the Stretto system is extremely valuable for safeguarding their investment and for consistent top performance."

Humidity Advisory
"Central heating, air conditioning and the dry climate parts of the country have done more damage to musical instruments than all other natural forces. There are a few absolutes to follow in order to keep your instrument in top condition and save time and money spent on repair.

1. Use the Stretto system of controlled, moisture release and electronic humidistat.
2. Keep your case closed at all times except to remove or replace the instrument.
3. Replace moisture pouches as needed (keep some spares handy).

As in all museums protecting great works of art, the humidity must be equalized for the preservation  of such masterpieces. All instruments require similar protection, regardless of their age��we owe it to our precious investment. I heartily recommend the Stretto."

-Cyrus Forough, Concert Artist, Professor of Violin , Carnegie Mellon University

Why Use a Humidifier?
The winter months ahead will bring with them colder and drier air which can be dangerous for instruments and bows. Wood absorbs and releases moisture as humidity levels change in the surrounding air. Instruments are, of course, made of wood. Dry air causes wood to release moisture which causes it to shrink and/or shift ever so slightly which for your instrument can lead to cracks and expensive repair bills. Of course most instruments will not crack, but as your instrument dries out, its tone will change, and seldom does it change for the better! Bow horsehair shrinks in dry air which can impair sound quality, or cause the bow to warp, or could even result in a disastrous bow tip break. A good phrase that comes to mind is: "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." Purchasing a relatively inexpensive humidifier will protect your investment and you to sound your best.

The hygrometer operates with single AAA battery (included) and reads humidity and temperature in Fahrenheit or Celsius; it also records the most recent highest and lowest settings of both readings. It can attach with included Velcro strips to the interior of case, or it can simply be stored in accessory pocket inside case. The Stretto effectively humidifies the entire case, so if the hygrometer is placed inside a pocket, its readings will still be accurate for entire case.
