    Digital Hygro-Thermometer

    During dry weather the often 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.

    Hygro-Thermometer operates with single AAA battery (included) and gives humidity and temperature in farenheit or celsius, and also records recent highest and lowest settings of both readings. Attaches with included velcro strips to interior of case, or can simply be stored in accessory pocket inside case. Stretto effectively humidifies entire case, so if hygro-thermometer is placed inside a pocket, readings will still be acccurate for entire case.
