The ClimaCab | Petite is the smallest size of our multi-instrument line of humidity controlled display cases. It's designed to allow for maximum versatility in displaying and protecting your fine instruments. Our ClimaCab | Petite can comfortably store three to four guitars along the top rail. With the addition of the slat wall, an additional one to two guitars and many more smaller bodied instruments* can be stored depending on configuration.
As with all of our products, each are handmade one at a time in small batches. Each has humble beginnings in an Amish workshop nestled on the bluffs above the Mississippi River in western Wisconsin. Traditional woodworking techniques passed down through generations ensure the highest quality construction available.
Just as you've come to expect excellence in your instruments, you can now have the same in your climate controlled ClimaCab | Petite.
All ClimaCabs come standard with ClimaControl Technology™, which is combination of Acoustic Remedy’s patented Guaranteed Seal System™ and innovative Dual Humidification Process™. Click the Features tab to learn more about this industry leading approach to preservation.
In addition, a powered humidifier with digital controller, a fully dimmable, remote controlled LED lighting around entire perimeter of display section, various storage options for lower section, a rail hanging system with eight String Swing pivoting hangers, and a Caliber IV hygrometer to monitor humidity levels.
Wood Species: Cherry, Black Walnut, Flamed Maple, Plain Maple, Northern White Ash, and Aromatic Cedar round out the standard wood species for this product line.
**Scroll to the bottom of any tab for starting prices for each species**
Dual wood combinations, for example Cherry with Black Walnut accents or Flamed Maple with Aromatic Cedar accents, are available. In addition, we offer many domestic and exotic wood species as well as a wide array of customizable options for those looking for truly unique look. Visit the Customizing Options tab for more information.

Dimensions: 36" wide x 23" depth x 72" tallAcoustic Remedy's patented Guaranteed Seal System™: combines a highly durable neoprene gasket and the same latches we utilize on our renowned ClimaStand to pull doors tight to gasket to achieve airtight environment
Spring loaded magnets have a pull force of 50 lbs each per latch. We mount three sets along the length of the door frame to create the consistent compression.
The neoprene gasket is mounted along a small strip of wood running the entire perimeter of the face frame of the upper section of the cabinet and inset just enough to be proud of the face frame. When the latches engage the door is pulled to the face frame compressing the gasket.
Each ClimaCab, prior to leaving the shop, is tested for air tightness by shining light along the entire gasket. If no light escapes between the door and the gasket then no air will either.
Dual Humidification Process™: powered/active and non-powered/passive gives you peace of mind and no gaps in humidity control
Powered/active: An industry leading, Vigilant Sentry 100 humidifier is housed in the lower storage cabinet in a hermetically sealed wood box. The Sentry 100 provides active humidification by turning the unit on/off compared to the factory set point of 50% relative humidity, which is at the midpoint of ideal relative humidity for stringed instruments (45-55%). A 1-gallon reservoir provides enough moisture for approximately 4-6 weeks and is easily refilled by lifting the cover plate and pouring more water into the reservoir. An extremely accurate digital sensor is mounted on the back wall of the ClimaCab. The capabilities of the Sentry 100 allow for +/- 5% relative humidity.
Non-Powered/Passive: (5) Boveda Cedar Two Packet Holders and (10) 49% Two Way Humidification packets can act as a secondary humidity control for anytime the powered unit is out of water, during power outages, or extended periods of time away from home. In certain climates, the passive system may be all that's required. In others it does the job to assist or maintain already achieved perfect humidity levels.
Versatile Hanging/Storage Systems: multiple storage solutions for your instruments allow for many display configurations
All ClimaCabs come standard with the the Top Rail Hanging System. This innovative hanging system consists of small blocks of wood, with the String Swing Display Case Hanger mounted to the block, and a matching wood rail.
Each block has opposing angles to the rail allowing secure hanging and the ability to slide left to right along the rail to multiple positions in the ClimaCab. These String Swing Display Case Hangers can also pivot 180 degrees at the yoke to allow for further configuration options. For example, you could store 2 guitars front facing, 4 guitars at 45 degree angle, or many more at 90 degree angle.
In order to add the Slat Wall Hanging System, you must visit the Customizing Options tab to add this option to your cabinet. There are many types of slat wall hangers available from String Swing (included with slat wall upgrade) and others from Hercules (additional cost). 8” Multi-Angle String Swings can pivot 180 degrees at the yoke and at the slat wall. Fixed arm String Swings do not pivot and come with 2" or 4" stems.
Industry first ProHang System combines the both Top Rail and Slat Wall Hanging Systems in one package giving unlimited display configurations
