Protects your guitar and keeps you informed.

The Planet Waves Acoustic Guitar Humidifier with HTS is a moisture reservoir that you suspend inside the body to slowly release moisture. The humidifier protects your guitar from damage even in the driest conditions. The high absorption sponge doesn't shrink or deform, avoiding leakage. The Planet Wave humidifier's removable top and removable sponge make it easy to keep the sponge moist. The unit registers temperature and humidity levels from 20%-99%. A memory function records the date and time of the highest and lowest temperature and humidity levels. The Planet Waves Acoustic Guitar Humidifier suspends from strings so it doesn't actually touch the guitar.

  • Seems Good

    As reviewed by TOBIAS PLONSKI on 3/19/2013

    Best as I can tell it gives an acurate humidity reading. But, I don't have anything to compare it too. I do know that with no humidifier in my guitar case it reads around 20% and the local weather report typically tells us we're around 20% humidity which is parched dry. We use a lot of chapstick. With 1 Planet Waves Acoustic Guitar Humidifier Item # 100709435 in the sound hole it reads around 32% and then with 2 Item # 100709435 it reads around 40%. So I use 2 of the drop in Humidifiers. One comes with the "HTS" hygrometer and you can buy a second one if you think you need it. Ideally you want to maintain around 45% but in my opinion any improvement over dry will extend the life of your guitar and help prevent problems. If your guitar is laminant top, back and sides you probably don't need one of these by might need something to put in the headstock area of your guitar case to keep the fretboard fresh. Now, I own a decent quality Takamine which are known for durability and not as prone to warping and cracking like Taylors, Martins, Breedloves, etc... are. That's one of the reasons you see so many Takamines on proffesional tours. They are much easier to maintain and they are easier to mix the tone in a live band situation.

  • Not Reliable

    As reviewed by on 8/27/2007

    If you're looking for an accurate hygrometer to protect your instrument, keep looking... I tested 2 Planet Waves unites (purchased to monitor 2 martin guitars) and found that they both reported wild fluctuations in humidity over a 24 hour period. In my line of work, our environmental lab (used for testing electronics) has a quality hygrometer which recorded the set test area humidity (in a 24 hour period) between 48%-50%. Over the same period, in the same location, both Planet Waves units recorded readings between 31% - 52%. The Planet Waves units did not even agree with each other and recorded low humidity readings randomly over a 24 hour period as shown on each of the date/time memories. The test was repeated 3 times with similar results. Clearly these 2 Planet Waves units are not reliable and if representative of the design, should be avoided. As mentioned, it?s unclear if this is a design flaw or the result of something missed in quality control however it is clear that this defect would prompt the user to employ a humidifier product when it?s unnecessary.

  • a great package!

    As reviewed by dai on 11/3/2006

    This is a must-have if you play a nice acoustic and live in a dry place, or even just a house that is heated. The gauge is a nice bonus, too - a lot of people over-humidify their guitars, which can be just as dangerous as dryness. I use this on my Gibson Songwriter Deluxe, and absolutely love it. It has done a fantastic job of keeping my guitar at the right humidity. A great product for a great price!
