Is it worth leaving the instruments at home?

Musical instruments such as guitars, bass, drums, and other musical equipment such as speakers, pedestals, microphones, amplifiers, sound desk, among others, occupy a significant space and can disrupt the organization of your home.

If you live with your family or with friends, surely some of them have complained about the space occupied by the instruments. Even if you live alone, you may have already had to move the equipment from side to side to release the passage or necessary space. And how about when cleaning the room where you keep these instruments? Dragging everything from side to side is tiring and still throws the equipment at risk. How to get around this stress?

Tips on how to store musical instruments:

  • It is essential to clean the instrument before storing it to better preserve it. It is also necessary to dry it, because, especially in the case of wind instruments, moisture can accumulate bacteria.
  • Place the smaller instruments, once cleaned, in appropriate and thermal cases, which are sold in specialised stores.
  • When storing string instruments such as a guitar, mandolin, ukulele, bass, among others, it is essential to keep them in their appropriate cases. These cases are crucial because they are protected internally and externally, absorbing any external impact that may occur.
  • Use also plastics or cloths on flooring instruments, like pianos. This helps avoid the accumulation of dust.
  • All instruments have a section that is more delicate, usually from where the sound comes out. Because of this, it should be avoided to leave this region against the wall or with weight on top. If you have a string instrument, for example, do not let his arm get pressure as this might damage it.
