 Re: playing in the rain

I was never particularly worried about rain in decent temperatures either but it does help to take a cloth (I keep a 100% cotton flannel cloth in the case at all tines ) and wipe off any excess moisture from around the keys and posts. Unfortunately springs can begin to rust if rain is left on them too often.

Oh, I wanted to add that the biggest issue for me regularly playing in the rain is the flip folder. Make sure you take out the music and the black paper backing to allow them to air dry. Otherwise your music will begin to smell like a wet dog.
