About This Item

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."

And Cyrus Forough, Concert Artist, Professor of Violin , Carnegie Mellon University says about the Stretto: "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."

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).

Question by:

  • THOMAS CHRIS TY
  • ALHAMBRA, CA

Asked On: 02/21/2018

Is the bag or pouch disposable or reusable? If reusable, for how many usage if reusable before disposing the bag?

SHAR Answer:

Hi Thomas! Yes, the humidification bags are reusable. We recommend re-soaking them approximately every 2 weeks. The humidifier includes 2 bags, which will last several times over. The bags tend to last longer if you don't let them dry out completely. Check often and re-soak when needed. Hope this helps!
