All Floor Models ship in two different boxes - one for the main body and one for the base of the ClimaStand. Typical time necessary for assembly is 10 minutes and requires a #2 square bit. We use square head bit because it tends to avoiding stripping out the head of the screw if your drill slips.
You simply line up the the base with light pencil marks on the body and inserting three screws along the top and five screws through the bottom. All holes are pre-drilled and the insertion of the screws should be very easy.
All Wall Models ship with three screws and three plastic toggles that can be inserted into the drywall for added strength. Please keep in mind these are recommended instructions and it will require the assistance of at least one other person. If you don't feel comfortable installing the case, please hire a handyman or carpenter.

We can generally get all ClimaStands out of our workshop within 5-10 business days for the wood types we keep in stock, which varies from time to time. All other wood types incur additional wait time, which varies depending on availability of lumber. Please keep in mind that this is an estimate and we will contact you if additional time will be required to ship your case.
We are constantly varying our inventory, so again we will be in touch after your order if it will take longer than the typical turn around time.
OF COURSE!! It is essential to humidify all wooden instruments. In fact, lack of humidity is the number one cause of all instrument repairs.
If your guitar has not been previously humidified and/or is showing signs of lack of humidity, the packets will dispense at an increased rate due to the fact that the instrument is in a dry condition and will soak up the moisture it desperately needs to reach equilibrium. Research has shown that a properly humidified acoustic guitar holds about 8-10 grams of water. To restore a dry guitar to the proper level can take 30-60 grams of water/vapor. The wood and interior of the ClimaStand are “seasoned” at our facility and should be at equilibrium when it arrives. If your guitar was properly humidified before it was placed in the ClimaStand, equilibrium will be reached within 1-2 days. If your guitar is not properly humidified before placing it in the ClimaStand it will take longer to come to equilibrium, on average 2-4 days.
On average, the Two-Way Humidification packets have a lifespan of 2-4 months depending on several variables listed below. As long as you are cognizant of these factors, we anticipate your packets will last the average lifespan.
You may experience months where the packets last longer or shorter based on these variables:
Fall/Winter: in many regions humidity levels have their greatest effect on instruments during these months. Most residential heating systems drive the RH inside your home to dangerously low levels for instruments. The Two-Way Humidification packets may dispense quicker as a strong demand is put on the packets to bring levels to equilibrium and maintain the 45-50% RH inside the ClimaStand.
Spring/Summer: as ambient atmospheric humidity levels increase, so does the lifespan of the packets, which may be 4-6 months or perhaps longer.
Desert/High Mountain Environments: extreme low humidity conditions are prevalent at higher elevations where the air is thinner and temperatures are typically cooler and in desert climates. These climates will result in lower humidity levels and the packet lifespan may mirror the fall/winter estimates.
Sub-Tropical Regions: humidity levels are elevated and warmer temperatures are normal driving up the RH. These factors will increase the duration of the packets.
You will get the most life from the Two-Way Humidification packets by constant use of the product and starting with a properly humidified instrument.
*Remember, when playing your instrument keep the Two-Way Humidification packets in the ClimaStand with the door securely fastened and secured to maximize packet life*
In addition to using the Two-Way Humidification System you should also consider the following:
There are several factors to consider if you want to cancel your order after payment.
