Humidifying Your ABG

Humidifying Your ABG

Postby ampig » Tue Jan 04, 2011 4:53 am

I just got my ustom built ABG. I'd like to keep it on a stand in my den for easy playing access and display, but low humidity is a big concern. What are my options?
Note- A sound hole deumidifier won't work for me because the sound hole is ovaloid - not round

I don't know what type of heat you have, but I'd do two things: get a room sized room humidifier for that room and b. ask your luthier what s/he suggests.... depending on your heat type, you may be inviting your bass to the crack festival


p.s...... part of the discussion depends on the finish chosen: lacquer, poly, or polyester will retard moisture loss better than an oil or oil/poly finish. I remember reading in some publication or another that polyurethane has about the best protection from moisture loss of all the commercially made finishes (not including industrial stuff)

Get a whole house humidifier. You can get them at Sears for b/w $120 - $140 and it'll keep the whole house comfortable.
