As an owner of a double bass, you need to monitor your humidity where the bass is primarily stored. With today’s technology, this has never been easier or cheaper than it is today! We’ve been using this tiny device here in the Upton Bass showroom to keep an eye on how our humidifiers are doing, and you should too. Simply put, whether the bass is old or new, the burden of its care rests on YOUR shoulders. A luthier can do EVERYTHING right in making your instrument, and if you dehydrate it, you will cause costly damages to it. If you own a bass, you need to own a humidity monitor.
