New! Buy Boveda (formerly Humidipak) 49% RH in bulk with our new 20 pack bricks and save money. Each brick contains 20 brown kraft paper Boveda that are not individually overwrapped in plastic. This saves you the time and hassle of having to unwrap the packs when you change out your Boveda. Because we don’t have to wrap each pack, this is the most cost effective way to buy your Boveda. Shelf life of Boveda left in the bulk pack is 2 years.
Boveda’s 2-way humidity control technology automatically protects your wooden instrument against warping, cracks and other damage caused by lack of humidification or too much humidification. Boveda maintains a constant 40%-50% relative humidity level within your instrument’s (closed) case.
Improper storage is the greatest constant danger to the condition of a wooden instrument. Until Boveda, humidified storage meant refilling awkward and unreliable sponges, snakes or discs. Those products only work 1-way, they add humidity whether it’s needed or not, while Boveda is the world’s first 2-way humidity control.
If not properly stored in a stable environment, your instrument will lose the specific geometry built into it while it was being crafted at the climate-controlled factory. This can cause warping or shrinking, which will change the tune at the least and cause damage at the most. In fact, most repair problems with wooden instruments can be avoided with properly humidified storage from Boveda.
Each Boveda consists of a specially prepared saturated solution of pure water and natural salts. This saturated solution is contained within a water-vapor permeable “reverse osmosis” membrane.
Boveda provides the cleanest and most purified humidity of all other products available on the market today.
