Protect Your Instrument with Boveda

Improper storage is a major threat to wooden instruments. The Boveda Ukulele & Guitar Humidity Control Pack eliminates the hassle of unreliable sponges and snakes. Musicians need three or more packs for a guitar or one for a ukulele to maintain optimal humidification. Boveda, the leader in two-way humidity control, offers various sizes and RH% to suit your needs. Each pack maintains a steady 40%-50% relative humidity, safeguarding your instrument from warping, cracks, and other damage due to improper humidification.

Oasis Humidifier for Ukulele

Oasis OH-18 Humidifier: Premium Instrument Protection

Hand-crafted in America, the Oasis OH-18 Humidifier is perfect for protecting fine instruments. Whether you own a bowed string instrument, a flat top steel string guitar, or a nylon string classical guitar, this humidifier is essential. It is designed to prevent dry weather damage, saving you from costly repairs. The Oasis OH-18 uses a multi-layer tube with Humigel crystals™ that hold more water than traditional sponges. The inner liner, similar to Gore-Tex®, prevents leaks while allowing water vapor to escape. Choose the blue humidifier for a slower emission rate or the khaki for a quicker release.

Keep Your Ukulele Safe with the Oasis OH-32 Humidifier

If you live in a very dry climate, the Oasis OH-32 humidifier is essential. It’s designed to maintain humidity in conditions of 20–25% relative humidity. It uses Humigel, a super-absorbent polymer that holds up to 500 times its weight in water. The special fabric allows water vapor to pass through while preventing leaks. The OH-32 hangs from your strings with a stabilizing bar, ensuring it doesn’t touch the instrument’s body. For best results, use distilled water to avoid clogging the liner.
