Safe, dependable, simple. Take the work out of managing humidity for wooden instruments – fretted, bowed or woodwinds. Boveda automatically humidifies and dehumidifies – whatever your instrument’s surroundings call for. No more foams, hoses and sponges that require constant attention and could damage an instrument, affect the sound and playability and lead to costly repairs.
The Boveda Starter Kit contains all you need to begin using Boveda to protect your wooden instrument. Just slip Boveda into the enclosed leak-resistant fabric holder. The Boveda protective holder is soft, like a polishing cloth. Nestle the holder near the instrument, close the case, and Boveda automatically adds and/or absorbs moisture all around your instrument.
The small size is suitable for fretted instruments, bowed instruments, and wooden woodwind Instruments. Includes: 2 Size 70 Boveda 49% RH and 1 single (1-pouch) fabric holder: 6″ x 4.25″
Boveda achieves and maintains a constant relative humidity (RH) range of 45% to 55% – the safe zone for wooden instruments. It uses only pure water and natural salts sealed inside a leakproof membrane. It provides humidity control for 2 to 6 months based on the instrument case, time of year, and climate. A simple touch test will let you know when it’s time to replace Boveda – they will feel crunchy and rigid.
Note: always insert Boveda into a sleeve of a Boveda fabric holder before placing in an instrument case. Do not mix different Boveda RH levels within the same instrument case. 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.
