Re: Woodwinds and Humidity
I called some of the manufacturers about this a few years ago when I was trying to make the case to have a dehumidifier in the band hall. You want 40-50% humidity - any less and it's too dry, any more and you start getting the problems you're talking about. My school is on a tear to reduce spending so over the summer all wooden instruments from my district move to the HS band hall, which is where the dehumidifier is located. That way, it's one room and they still get their savings.
