Oasis OH1 Acoustic Guitar Humidifier Features

- Provides long-lasting humidification
- Ensures no leakage due to overfilling
- Promises two levels of leak protection
- Is stabilized to never touch the body of your instrument
Repairing a cracked top of a fine guitar is expensive, and it can alter its sound. Although ‘sound hole’ humidifiers have been around for a long time, Oasis humidifiers provide a better answer to humidification. The body of the Oasis Guitar Humidifier 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 Oasis shrinks to compensate for the loss of water. Because you can see the Oasis shrink, it’s easy to determine when it is ready for refill. Also, you don't have to guess when it is full. Simply unscrew the black cap, fill with water to the top of the container, and replace the cap. Once sealed, the water-tight container is your first line of defense against leaks. The super absorbent polymer crystals inside Oasis, Humigel, is your second line of defense. It captures up to 500 times its weight in water in an absorbent gel matrix.
Like other sound hole humidifiers, Oasis fits between the strings of your guitar. The materials that touch your strings are relatively soft and won’t scratch. A blue polyurethane stabilizing bar fits over the neck of the humidifier. Once positioned in the sound hole, the stabilizing bar lies across the guitar strings to ensure even weight distribution. The Oasis® Guitar Humidifier never touches the body of your instrument.
Because tap and bottled water contain dissolved minerals that can clog the liner, distilled water is recommended to extend the useful life of your humidifier.
Oasis OH2 Digital Hygrometer
When the relative humidity drops below 40%, a guitar, or any stringed musical instrument made of wood, is at risk of cracking or warping. The Oasis® Digital Hygrometer accurately measures relative humidity, helping you decide when to protect your instrument with the Oasis Guitar Humidifier. Because relative humidity varies so much, even inside your home, we recommend that you keep your hygrometer close to your instrument.

How does it work? To get an accurate humidity reading for the guitar body, we recommend that you first lay the guitar case with the back to the floor and open the cover. Take a small piece of cloth, and place it under the hygrometer to avoid scratching the top of your guitar. Put the hygrometer on the guitar top with the sensor at the edge of the sound hole. Close the case, and allow 4-6 hours for the humidity to stabilize. Open the case and look at the reading within a few seconds, and you get the humidity reading that existed just before you opened the case.
Because the Oasis humidifier will somewhat distort the humidity reading, take readings with the Oasis humidifier in place and take readings without the Oasis humidifier. A well-humidified guitar in its case will have relatively stable humidity readings, so you don’t have to measure the humidity all the time.
Since the hygrometer is not secured, take special care NOT to move the case while the hygrometer is in this position.
