Oasis® Case Humidifier

You probably already know that your instrument can crack in dry weather. Repairing a cracked top of a fine guitar is both expensive and can alter the sound of your instrument. To solve this problem, guitarists have been using humidifiers since the 1960's. These humidifiers do have a number of drawbacks. The first is that you cannot see when they need to be refilled. When you do refill them, they can be overfilled and drip inside your expensive instrument. This is because all currently available humidifiers have openings to allow for water evaporation. The job of protecting the instrument against leaks is left to an absorbent medium such as a sponge or floral foam, which can be over saturated with water.

Dave Hepple has now developed the most effective and easy guitar case humidifier we have ever used, it's called the Oasis® guitar case humidifier.

This Oasis® set includes a steel belt clip, a stainless steel strip with adhesive backing, blue Oasis® humidifier filled with super absorbent Humigel™ polymer crystals and a 10cc. syringe. The Humigel™ crystals absorb 500 times their weight in water so the volume of dry crystals needed in the humidifier is extremely small (0.3 cubic centimeters to be exact), making them almost invisible at the bottom of the humidifier. The body of Oasis® is made from a specially designed fabric that allows water vapor (but not water) to pass through it. As the vapor transmission takes place, a vacuum is created and the Oasis® humidifier shrinks to compensate for the loss of water. Simply by watching the Oasis® shrink, every time you take your guitar out of your case, you can very easily see and determine when it is ready for a refill with distilled water. When refilling, you don't have to guess when it is full. Simply unscrew the black cap, fill with distilled water to the top of the container and replace the cap.

With this Oasis® guitar case humidifier, Dave also invented a simple way to integrated two neodymium magnets in the seam of the humidifier. These magnets then attach to the instrument case using either the included steel belt clip or the stainless steel strip with adhesive backing. This enables you to attach, remove and re-attach your blue Oasis® humidifier very easily to the inside of any of your instrument cases. The belt clip fits over the side of the case and provides a flat vertical surface for the magnets to adhere. The adhesive backed stainless steel strip allows for either vertical or horizontal attachment anywhere there is a flat surface inside the case. An advantage of this type of humidifier is the flexibility to position the humidifier in a wide variety of locations within your instrument case.

The syringe will increase your control during filling or refilling the humidifier. Since the humidifier holds about 32cc’s of water, it will take 3+ syringes of water to fill the first time. After that, refills should only take 1+ syringe of water. As always, we recommend the use of distilled water which will extend the useful life of your humidifier. The Humigel™ crystals inside the Oasis® guitar humidifier are designed to last a long time.

Important: When using your Oasis® guitar case humidifier for the first time, be careful not to turn your humidifier upside down in an attempt to try and look at the dry crystals. If you do turn the humidifier upside down, you might spill some of the dry crystals out decreasing the humidifier its capacity. Once the water has been absorbed by the dry crystals you will see them very easily.
