Home-made DIY Guitar Case Humidifier

On November 7, 2011, in Advice, Videos, by Magnolia Guitar

Like I promised last week, here is Part 2 of my video “Humidity and Your Guitar.”

In this video, I get right to work and demonstrate how easy and inexpensive it is to make your own home-made guitar case humidifier. You’ll save money now by doing it yourself, but you’ll also save money later, because you’ll be properly maintaining your instrument over the course of its life.

Keep your instrument properly humidified in the winter or in dry climates and you won’t have to visit a tech like me needing a big ticket repair!

Humidity & Your Guitar (Part 1 of 2)

On October 31, 2011, in Advice, Videos, by Magnolia Guitar

This past weekend, it actually snowed. And it’s still only October!

Since I had to actually turn on the heat for the first time this season, I thought I’d share this 2-part video that covers humidity, temperature and caring for your guitar in the winter.

In Part 1 below, I talk about temperature, humidity and things to consider when storing your guitar during the winter months.

In Part 2 next week, I show you how to save some money and make your own home-made guitar case humidifier for practically nothing!

One thing I don’t mention in the video is that I’m among those who prefer humidifiers that don’t go inside the guitar. When used properly, these products are safe, but some just prefer not to risk it. The humidifiers that I will show you to make next week can be placed inside the head-stock area. They work just as well, and there’s risk of water leakage inside your guitar.
