How to tell if a basement is still humid...

Hey guys-

Setting up a studio in my basement. Feels kind of humid. Not really sure how to tell if it's TOO humid- also not sure how bad it is for my gear.

Loading in some delicate things, electronically- analog synths, some microphones, Rokit 8's, etc.

A little help?

imho
if you can feel it then it is too humid
get a dehumidifier or two

RTFM for specs for your gear
there are ways to measure it
perhaps it is okay for your kit

I used a similar meter when we were having trouble with the CR being too dry.
These days they also come in LCD form.

Mine was in the upper 80s (%), with some pools of water in the corners.

I then got a dehumidifier, it's now staying within 55-60%...

I know some of my stuff says they are good between 10-90% but I would definitely try to keep it under 70.

Humidity + Electronics = Bad
