Protect your musical instrument with Venta Airwasher Humidifiers

Whether it be your guitar, cello, violin, double bass, or piano, musical instruments are a private passion for some, and loyal companions in the studio or on the stage for others. They accompany musicians for years – or even over the course of a lifetime. It is hardly surprising that owners often develop a very special relationship with their instrument. The proper maintenance of their prized possession is of course indispensable, but that is no easy task. Musical instruments are sensitive to temperatures, dust, and relative humidity. In order for your expensive musical instruments to sound good for as long as possible, they should be stored in an optimal indoor climate. In winter especially when indoor heating is being utilized, the air in guitar rooms, rehearsal rooms, or studios tends to dry out. This dry air can cause lasting damage to instruments.

Produce the best sound

The first changes in the instrument often become noticeable through a change in the way it feels when it is played as well as the sound produced. When the instrument suddenly feels or sounds different, the strings are often initially blamed, but these are often just the first signs of damages due to climatic conditions.

Musical instruments, audio mixers, and amplifiers produce the best sound when they are stored in optimal humidity. Both string and woodwind instruments alike can generate a poor tone or buzzing sounds when exposed to dry air. When pianos are exposed to high or low relative humidity, significant changes can occur to the soundboard. These changes can lead to poor tune and sharp pitch, so it is important to ensure your piano remains in an ideal indoor climate.

"The right level of humidification is important for valuable musical instruments. I bought the Venta air washer, and I'm very happy with it. Especially because it is very hygienic and low-maintenance. That is why I like to recommend this type of air humidification.“

Prof. Justus Frantz, Hamburg

Protect your investment

The reason instruments change so much due to humidity is primarily due to the material that makes up the instrument: wood. It is a living material that reacts to its surroundings and is constantly changing. This is still even the case if the tree that was used to make the instrument was chopped down half a century ago and the wood has been dried for decades. When the air is humid, wood expands, and when the air is dry, wood contracts. These changes affect not just the way the instrument is played, but also the way it looks. If a guitar or bass is stored in a dry area, the neck will warp and the fretboard will lose volume. When touching the wood with your fingers, the surface feels unusually rough, despite the varnish. Due to the contraction of the fretboard, the frets jut out sharply – a clear sign of insufficient humidification.

If you ignore these warning signs and keep storing the instrument in a dry space, serious damages can occur. The otherwise slightly convex front and back panels of string instruments will gradually curve upwards. The surface can crack, the varnish can split open, and fractures can occur. There is usually not much that can be done to repair these damages – only a specialist may be able to salvage all or parts of the instrument. This is why musicians should take great care to regularly keep an eye on the surface of the instrument as well as the humidity in the room. Fragile instruments, in particular, are at risk of being damaged by dry air. Instruments with a solid body such as electric guitars or electric basses are subject to different hazards caused by poor climatic conditions. This usually makes itself noticeable through a warping of the neck or rust on its metal parts.

“Wherever I'm performing in the world: My agencies are instructed to make sure that Venta air washers are installed on site, because my incredibly valuable violin requires the best possible indoor climate. Only VENTA can give me the confidence that the air humidification will be perfect.“

Nigel Kennedy, London
