Humidifiers for Guitar/Home Studio..


Recommended Posts

I wish I had more room for Plants & a Fish Tank..  As it is I'm trying to find a spot that a good Tower Humidifier (that will do the job) will fit.. The Levoit was too boxy & by the time you moved it away from the wall it was sitting in the middle of the Room.. It wasn't working for my Room.. 

I nooticed last night the humidity droppoed to 23%... I think I need to get it done..

Do you run the A/C all night?   Do you need to? 

This time of year I have Thermostat set to 76 degrees. It’s Automatic… Summers when it’s really hot in the 100’s I set it 78-80 degrees.. So, yeah, pretty much most of the year…

I like that one.... I like that you don't have to remove the tanks to fill it up.... Hopefully it works out for you. 

Supposed to be here around the 23rd of May.. I'll post a follow up...

Thanks

I had a though about the air conditioner and humidifier fighting each other.  Any way to take the water coming out of the A/C and route it to the reservoir of the humidifier using a hose?  Otherwise you are going to go through a lot of water.

Not that would allow peaceful coexistence with my wife! Actually thought about having it professionally done.. But, I want to try this first & see how it goes.. Personally I prefer a dry Climate.. It’s good for me. Turns out it’s not good for my Guitars..

The AC really doesn't fight the humidifier that much. I have found the humidifier consumes the same amount of water with or without the AC on.

I haven't read through this entire thread so sorry if this has already been discussed, but do semi-hollow guitars (335's, Thinline Teles) require humidity control as much as acoustics ?

It appears all Guitars made of Wood can be affected by lack of Humidity.. Not just the Bodies but also the Necks & Fretboards.

Solid Body, Hollow & Semi-Hollow Bodies.. All of them…

Necks are pretty much the same & lack of humidity can cause shrinking & fret edges..

Ahhh.... I didn't think about that one. I mostly worry about my acoustics....

The new Humidifier arrived today.. Setup was fast & easy.. Filled with water, wait 20 minutes for Filter to absorb water.. set Humidity level, Turn on & select Fan Speed.

The humidity in my room was about 30%.. Within an hour or so it was up to 45%..

The Tower shape is ideal, fits perfect, surprisingly doesn’t take much room, works fast & looks like a piece of furniture.

So far I’m impressed.

Amazon has them for $168.00..

My Studio is now 41% humidity.. It feels really humid.. I’m not used to it here in the Desert..  It’s going to take some time to adjust to it. I guess it’s good for my Guitars though!

Great news... Did you order the Bacteriostatic Treatment? This is very important.

I’m using Distilled water so far.. I’m ordering the Bacteriostatic Treatment today.. What do you recommend? Also, how often do you need to change filters?

Thanks

Just a cap full on every tank refill. The system will show a code on the LCD readout when you need to change the filters. I have to change mine about every 6-8 months. I don't use distilled water so it could be a longer interval between filter changes for you.
