Overview

Planet Waves, in collaboration with Humidipak, brings you the first two-way humidity controller that maintains a constant 45% relative humidity level. The patented Planet Waves Humidipak completely eliminates all the guesswork and anxiety of maintaining your musical instrument's proper humidity level. No more guessing if or when to refill the humidifier and worrying about drips or mess. Unlike all refillable humidifiers, the Humidipak acts as a gauge because it provides true "two-way" purified humidity control. It adds or reduces moisture only as needed to maintain 45% RH - the ideal climate for wooden instruments such as acoustic guitars.

Just place 2 packets in the double pouch. Put the double pouch over your D and G strings and let it hang down into the soundhole. Place the third packet under your guitar's headstock in its case. Close the case and you're done. The packet will last anywhere from 2-6 months, depending on the humidity where you are. When the packet become firm, discard and replace. The Humidipak humidity controller is as simple as that!

FEATURES

  • True two-way Humidity control
  • Maintains constant 45%RH within instrument case
  • No water, no drips, no mess
  • Long lasting, maintenance free design
Pro Coverage

About 6 mouths ago I got a Jumbo Taylor 315ce and wanted to upgrade my Humidity Control System. I was sick of messing around with water guess-work! So I walked into a guitar center and they told me to try this. Simply amazing! I never have to worry! Just check the pack every month to see when you need a new one! Lasts more like 4 months.

This product is not all it claims to be. Don't think it will bring your guitar's case to 45% humidity. It will only maintain what you already have. I tried these and have not gotten the kind of results promised. The packets will last about three months or so, and then you will to purchase more... three more packets every three months or so. When this product originally came out it worked wonderfully. The variations (so they won't leak on your guitar) are not as good imho.

Planet Waves Humidipack

By Scott

Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Two-Way Humidification System:

Very easy to use, set it and forget it No fooling around with water and syringes like the Oasis models. Just open the package, put the humidipacks in their holders, drop one in the case and hang the other in the soundhole & you're done

Better than expected

By Alan

from Westport Island, Maine

Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Two-Way Humidification System:

I tried the Humidpaks over the past several months and was delighted to find that they exceeded my expectations. I live on an island off the coast of Maine where weather conditions change constantly. Humidipak has allowed me to forget the stress I constantly lived with in trying to maintain my Martins in the best possible condition.

Beware - This system is not all it's cracked up to be

By mark

from Fort Collins, CO

Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Two-Way Humidification System:

I live in Colorado and so have to take guitar humidification very seriously. It's a labor of love, but I'm always looking for something more convenient than wetting sponges since I travel frequently with work and can't reliably service them - and it's a pain in the behind. I've tried the humidipak system twice, the previous generation and the "new and improved" version. In both cases the paks only last about 3 weeks in this climate. There are a few problems with the design. Stuffing the saddlebag style pouches into the sound hole between the middle strings requires bending the strings to allow enough room. I prefer to slip them in between the e-strings and sound hole on each side. As the paks dry out, they get harder to slip into place. If you leave it in too long (a few weeks) the paks will dry out and get rock hard and then you'll have to be careful removing them without damaging the sound hole. It takes more than 3 paks per case to get the RH anywhere close to 40%. With only 3 guitars it's a small fortune to keep them all outfitted in humidipaks. These might work ok in moderately humid climates but they fail miserably in the high desert of Colorado. I'm going back to sponges - sigh, for my Taylor, Cordoba and Epiphone Sheraton II.

It works for me

By Bill Jasso

from Ohio

Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Two-Way Humidification System:

I live in Northeast Ohio. Winter humidity rarely gets above 20%. In summer it can get to 80%. Humidipak has been great for my Martins. Keeping a hydrometer in the case, they all remain at 44-47% levels. Humidipaks have lasted over a month with no signs of drying out. Haven't used them in summer yet, but they were well worth the price for keeping the guitars humidified in the winter.

      The original system I purchased a few years ago had one single and one double sleeve or pouch and was super simple to use. This new soundhole sleeve or pouch is horrible. Very poor design. Would not purchase this again unless they replace the double pouch!!!

        Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Two-Way Humidification System:

        The older pouches work better for me. They changed it to a plastic kind of sleeve to make it easier to slide into the sound hole. The problem is you have to clip the packets in the bag with a 2 dumb plastic pieces.
        My guitars kind of nice & I don't trust the plastic piece's to not rough up my guitar when I travel. I returned this kit & bought some of the older style kits I like on a popular online auction website.
        I will say that the newer style pouch is a little easier to slide out. However for me it is not worth the sacrifice of having to worry about it scratching my wood or the plastic pieces breaking.
        Looks like something that is designed to break where as the old pouches would probably last you for life. I advise you to stock up on older style pouches if you like them.
        The benefit of the older style pouches is that it was just a piece of fabric w/ 2 pouch pockets/no plastic. It was easy enough to just drape around or in-between the strings & not very hard to carefully slide out of the sound hole.
        If it ain't broke don't fix it D'Addario!

          Great Humidifier

          By Tom

          from Madison, WI

          Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Two-Way Humidification System:

          I have a humidity gauge in with the packs. The reading on the gauge reads 42%. It seems to be working great. I am not 100% confident with my gauge so I think it is probably at a constant 45%. I would definately buy it again. I am not sur if I would get the refills though. Unless I am missing something, it is cheaper by $5 to just buy the entire kit again. I don't know why the refills cost more. The only two downfalls for me is that one, you have to buy more and more refills when these runout instead of just adding more water to it like all of the others. Two, the logo patch that is sewn onto the case always gets caught on the strings when inserting it and removing it. It's really not that big of a deal if you remember to pull the string over. Those are the only reasons I am rating it a 4. Otherwise I would rate it a 5 for performance.

          Cheaped out on the Mesh Holders

          By Canoemandan

          from G.V. MI

          Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Two-Way Humidification System:

          The mesh holders on the Humidipaks that I bought when they first came out were much nicer than the ones they sell now. The sound hole mesh holders had a divider strip between them that was substantial and had a little loop on it. The new packets are very flimsy. My last replacement packets lasted quite a few months but the new ones I just put in my case started to harden up after about 3 weeks. I called them and they sent me some free replacements which was nice of them. I think there may be some issues with Humidipak trying different formulations so that they can maximize how many they sell. Obviously the longer they last the less they will sell so, if they can get them to last only 3 months instead of 6 (like my early ones did) they'll make more money. All in all they have worked very well for me but the jury is still out on the latest packets.

          Don't Work as Advertised!

          By Anonymous

          from Mpls, MN

          Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Two-Way Humidification System:

          I have been using the Humidipak system for about one year now, and they simply don't work as advertised. I have a Taylor 714ce and wanted something reliable to keep the humidity around 45%. I had previously been using a Planet Waves sponge-based system. I live in MN and we do get low humidity in the winter. In my house, it can get into the 35-40% range in Dec thru Feb. The problem is that I only get about one month for a brand new set of Humidipaks. In 3-4 weeks they are hard as a rock and need to be replaced. Also, I have an Oasis humidity sensor and it reports high/low and current humitidy within my guitar case. Basically, except for when the Humidipaks are brand new, the humidity is the same as the room in which I store my guitar. They do last longer in the summer when the humidity is high, but seem worthless in my climate. These are not worth the money. I would not recommend them.

          Works Both Ways

          By Cliff Rhodenizer

          from Roswell, GA

          Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Two-Way Humidification System:

          I live in the Atlanta area where humidity is relatively high most of the year. I got these to not only ADD moisture when needed, but it also absorbs excess moisture when humidity is too high. That is the biggest advantage I see in these over the other kinds. My humidipaks have lasted about six months so far, as I expected. But now that we are going into the coldest winter months, they will probably start to dry out more. If you live in a humid climate, they will last longer. If you live in a dry climate, they will harden up and need to be replaced more often. That's just the way it works. Leave the case closed while you are playing and be careful not to puncture the paks. If you have a pickup blocking the sound hole, you don't have to squeeze the pak around it. Just lay it in the case at the base of the neck where it wont get squeezed.
