Thank you!
It'll be fine though 40% is on the low end of acceptable. Just keep it in the case when you're not playing it and store a humidification system within the case. Personally I use a drilled soap dish and a sponge but humidipacks seem popular on this forum as well. Purchasing a full room/home humidifier seems like overkill to me.
