Our workshop operates by appointment for all instrument and bow repair and restoration, and availability is limited. Because each player and instrument is unique, we prefer to have a conversation with you to discuss your individual needs and answer any questions you may have. We invite you to call us at 617-262-0051 (ext. 655) or email email@example.com to discuss scheduling an appointment.
As a comprehensive string shop, Carriage House Violins offers a wide range of services to our clients through every step of the instrument selection process.
A violin, cello, or any other stringed musical instrument made of wood is at risk of cracking when the relative humidity drops below 40%. The Oasis® OH-2C Digital Hygrometer accurately measures relative humidity, helping you decide when to protect your instrument with a humidifier. The OH-2C is identical to the OH-2, except that it allows for humidity calibration. Calibration allows the user to adjust the hygrometer +/- 5 RH points if any changes are needed. Because relative humidity varies greatly, even inside your home, it is recommended that you keep your hygrometer close to your instrument. With the convenient case clip it is possible to measure the relative humidity inside your guitar case. The clip attaches to the back of the hygrometer and can be mounted inside your instrument case.
