Increased sustain after unplugging Damp Chaser
« on: November 11, 2020, 10:00:02 AM »
I have an old Yamaha G7 of which I'm not happy with the sustain in the treble area. The third G above middle C in particular has very short sustain. In fact none at all when unison is dead on. This piano has had a Damp Chaser dehumidifier installed and plugged in 24/7 since I acquired it two years ago. We live in the tropics where RH is mostly above 80% year round and never goes below 70%.

Two days ago I unplugged the Damp Chaser because we needed to do some house maintenance. Now, I noticed increased sustain in general. The high G in particular has sustain now.

Am i imagining things?

I suspect this post to be spam, as this was copied and pasted from:

http://forum.pianoworld.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/3043058/increased-sustain-after-unplugging-damp-chaser.html

And the user who created it on that forum has received plenty of answers regarding the situation. Seems INCREDIBLY unlikely that they need a second forum to answer a question that's already been answered.
