M.U.D. is an exceptionally effective dehumidifier made from highly absorbent calcinated minerals. It lasts longer, and removes more moisture from the air than any other desiccant in the world. It is a re-usable, organic, moisture-absorbing compound that is capable of absorbing up to75% of its own weight in water for 60-90 days. Then can be reactivated!
CASE SWEAT: Whatever climate you ive in, there is always moisture in the air, usually ranging between 50%-90%. Moving your instrument and equipment in their case from a cool room, to the warmth outside (or even worse, to a baking hot car) will cause the natural moisture inside the case to condensate quickly.
Woodwind instruments; Water in the air is readily absorbed by the wood, which will create a noticeable loss of tone, due to the extra weight. Humidity also causes serious damage: wood will swell, warp, twist, and crack. Glue softens, and joints open, leaving you with expensive repair charges. Dampness also encourages mildew, and pest infestation such as weevils, mites, and woodworm.
Moisture also causes swelling to the pads, corks and wooden bodies, leaving you with expensive repair charges.
Place the M.U.D. vial in your instrument case. One vial is sufficient for violins, guitars, and smaller instruments (up to 1/4 cubic meter). For cellos and larger instruments, two or more vials are recommended.
M.U.D. has a naturally built-in colour indicator, which shows you how much moisture has been absorbed. When completely dry, M.U.D. is a light sandy colour. As moisture is absorbed over a period of time, M.U.D. changes its hue to a darker reddish-mahogany colour. When this occurs, it is then time to reactivate your M.U.D. by simply placing it in the microwave.
