This is where Music Sorb comes into the picture. Music Sorb absorbs and releases moisture as the humidity changes. It acts like a shock absorber to the humidity fluctuations. Music Sorb is based on synthetic silica gel with a simple chemical switch which changes it from adsorbing to desorbing. So, with Music Sorb in the piano, acting as an adsorber/desorber of moisture, there are less extremes, less flexibility, and the instrument is less subject to expansion/contraction and the piano stays more stable.
