Time To Humidify Again!

by Kevin Hart on 09/13/18

The weather is drying out again in the northern hemisphere. Here in Wyoming it’s almost always that time!

We’ve talked about humidification before. This time I would like to give some specific product recommendations. I’ve been using these for a couple of years and I’ve had good success with them.

I’ve been very pleased with the D’Addario Humidipacks and the Humiditrak. The Humidipacks keep the relative humidity in the guitar and case at 50%. They are soft sided and won’t harm the instruments. To keep track of the relative humidity, the Humiditrak offers a Bluetooth hygrometer that you can access with your smartphone. The Humiditrak lets you monitor your guitars relative humidity and temperature hourly, or monthly. It has the added benefit of being able to track and record impact. This is a great bonus on those trips when you are forced to check your guitar with the airline.

Check out our previous post for more general information and on room and instrument humidifiers, and hygrometers.

Enjoy your practice and your time with your guitar!
