by from Fort WayneI was skeptical of how well this very moderately priced humidifier could work. The alternative that was suggested just rattled around in the guitar, however, so this seemed like a better choice, if i... read more [+]t worked. Lo and behold, it does. It is deceptively simple. You squeeze the sides, and out pops a sponge. You could do your dishes with it, and I assume that if you want to replace it, a chunk of kitchen sponge will do the trick. You soak the sponge to your liking, pop it back in the unit, and snap the top back on. Now for the feature that I think sets this apart from those plastic tubs. The unit slides between the strings in your soundhole. The little tab that you can see in the center bottom of the picture (which is the top when you place it in your guitar) is actually for the string to snap over, so that the humidifier cannot slide or come loose. The great thing about this is that it never touches your guitar (other than the strings) or the inside of the body, and cannot rattle around and make noise or damage the inside of the sound chamber. You can flip guitar all around, and the unit stays put. Also, as long as you have not totally sodden the sponge without squeezing it out, no water can come out to mess things up. So it does what it is supposed to, without creating any cause for worry. close [-]

Works well if you keep your guitar in a case
by Tommy from Richmond, VaI bought this because it's been dry and I thought I could just humidify my guitars "as needed." I thought I'd just stick the guitar in a case for a week with the humidifier and "refresh" it. Unfortuna... read more [+]tely, it doesn't work like that. After I did further research, I realized your guitar needs to stay at a constant humidity, not fluctuating. I can't stand keeping my instruments in cases because I'm lazy. I need them on a stand for easy access or they won't get played. So I decided to invest in a room humidifier instead. As for this product, I still intend to use it when I travel. It is easy, convenient, and effective when you have your instrument in it's case. close [-]

Simple, Easy Humidifier
by fromI have several of these little humidifiers. I even use them in the cases of some electric guitars, just laying in the case (rather than inserting into the soundhole, because there isn't a soundhole).... read more [+] So, even with an acoustic, if you don't feel comfortable inserting this into the soundhole where it places constant pressure on the strings, just throw it in the case. I have never had any problems with any water leaking out onto any of my guitars. close [-]

by Will from Brush Prairie, WAIt works great, but it doesn't look as good as it does in the picture. It doesn't damage the electronics in your A/E guitar.
