The humidifiers can be placed directly in the gig bag or hard case to achieve the desired effect.

Damage, corrosion or rusting of any hardware components or damage to finishes or cracks, splitting, or warpage of wood due to changes in temperature or humidity, or from exposure to extreme temperatures, acts of nature, dry climates, or salt air climates,  or exposure to moisture, contact with sun, fire,, body salts and acids of perspiration will void the warranty.
