Humidity and your guitar. It is a really important discussion, and it’s not complicated. When the furnace goes on, you need to humidify your guitar. Humidity is vital to its health and longevity.
Wood responds to changes in both temperature and humidity. When the furnace goes on, humidity levels in your home can drop below 20%. That dry air draws moisture out of your guitar causing the wood to shrink. Cracking, frets protruding along the neck, bridge lifting, warping, string buzz as well as compromised playability and sound are the result.
Your guitar needs to be kept between 45% and 50% humidity. The only way to do that is by using a guitar humidifier. The humidifiers that are installed on your furnace do not raise the humidity levels high enough to protect your guitar. Our Repair Department regularly sees guitars with problems resulting from low humidity. Don’t let yours be one of them.
We carry several kinds of humidifiers. Two that are recommended by Taylor and Martin Guitars are the Oasis Plus and the D’Addario Humidipak. We also strongly encourage you to purchase a digital hygrometer which lets you monitor humidity levels to ensure you’re between 45% and 50%. Both of these together can be purchased for under $55.
If you’re experiencing cracking, checking or any of the other humidity issued listed above, give us a call and we will assist you. Our onsite Repair Department can help with a guitar that has been exposed to low humidity conditions. Please keep in mind that not humidifying your guitar may void the manufacturer’s warranty.
A humidifier, a hygrometer and your guitar kept together in the case will protect it from our long, dry Canadian winters – a minimal investment to extend the life of your guitar and keep it playing and sounding great for many years to come.
Please give us a call or send us an email if you have any questions.

J.P. Cormier stopped by The Arts Music Store with the fine folks at Boucher guitars in Quebec to demo a few guitars for us. This Jumbo guitar was custom hand built for J.P. by the one and only Robin Boucher himself. With AAAA Adirondack Spruce for the top and flame maple back and sides, this guitar offers volume, clarity and balance mixed with Boucher’s extreme focus on comfort.
