    They are worthless. I have one too and it barely moves 10-15% up and down with extreme changes of real humidity. My son got large styrofoam case with his cello and the hygrometer on that works much better (moves 30% u and down) , but still lacks any accuracy...
    Caliber III or IV is recommended hygrometer with good precision.

    I chime in to offer a recommendation that I seldom see posted when this question about cases comes up on the Cafe', which appear often.

    I have appreciated the Zero Gravity case from TKL... I almost never see it referenced. Here are a few pictures. I knew nothing about these cases until David Cohen sent my custom A5 in one 2 years ago. I much prefer it to the Travelight case I've previously owned.

    I am having trouble finding this case for sale. I saw one music store selling it for $149.00 and another at $79.00 Quite a wide gap. Anyone know where it can be purchased?

    I maybe wrong, but it is highly doubtful.

    Hi Adrian - I thought that would be the case. ''Fitted for show - not for use'' !.

    Mossmanl - I have considered one of the TKL cases in the past,but the outer pocket,for which i have no use whatsoever,put me off. They do seem to be a nice case though. Is the construction similar to the Travelite case ie. a rigid body inside which a foam core is fitted ?,
