OVERVIEW

An affordable 3-pack of replacement packets for the Planet Waves' Humidipak humidity controller

This 3-pack of replacement packets for Planet Waves' Humidipak humidification system is an affordable way to keep your acoustic instrument at its proper relative humidity. The packets last from 2-6 months, so ordering a three pack can last you anywhere from half a year to a year-and-a-half.

The patented, two-way Humidipak humidification system (sold separately) is a two-way humidity controller that's recommended by Taylor guitars and other leading manufacturers for maintaining the stability and playability of your instrument. This humidification system maintains 45-50% relative humidity, eliminating all maintenance and guesswork. No more guessing if or when to refill the humidifier and worrying about drips or creating a mess. Unlike other refillable humidifiers, the Humidipak humidity controller acts as a gauge because it provides true two-way, purified humidity control. It adds or reduces moisture as needed to maintain proper relative humidity, which is the ideal climate for wooden instruments such as acoustic guitars.

Just place 2 packets in the double pouch, place the double pouch over your D and G strings, and let it hang down into the soundhole. Place the third Humidipak replacement packet under your guitar's headstock while 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 instrument is located. When the Humidipak packet becomes firm, discard it and replace it with another Humidipak replacement packet.


Keep your acoustic instrument humidified properly with back up packets that keep the humidity going when you order this packet 3-pack today.

    Owned a Taylor 414 CE now for about six monthsPackets have been lasting about 44 days in the dry climate where I am with Taylor caseAt first dissapointed with life span of packets but learned from website additional infoPackets even when they are beginning to firm up are still controlling humidity at 45-50Decided to check statement by putting a remote sensor in my case at 40 daysHouse humidity 25-38 percent humidity/Guitar case was a steady 48 percentBags have been firming up for about 5 days but still holding there ownI'm curently trying a reconstitution of packets by placing about an inch of water in the bottom of a mason jar, overlapping edge of packet and seal at top and tightening the ring.Got great results after 3 days with a dried up packet.Did a test in a less quality case and it did not hold the moisture. A sealed case is a MUSTWhen playing you have to keep the packets in case and case completely locked down.If they can figure out a way to make these things work for at least 3 months in the dead of winter I'll be a faithful customer.I'm hoping they continue to work with this product to improve on its ability.
    I think this item has the potential to be the best humidity control for any wood instrument short of storing in a humidity controlled room.
    I dont believe the price is right yet. Life to price ratio.

    Will buy againa and again.
    A must, no mess, fix for dry or wet environments. I used to work at a couple music shops for nearly 5 years, trying to fix cracked guitars and this is the easiest product (that actually works) I have ever seen. Will not fix a huge crack, but will help seal small ones and prevent them. I use them all year around.
    Built well. I have kids and was afraid of them getting into the package, but there is no way for that.
    Grade A. This much to keep my $3500 Taylor from splitting. Who wouldn't buy them?!?!

          Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves HuMIDIpak Replacement Packets - 3 Pack:

          The photos don't depict the product. Planet Waves has also changed the sacks that live in the sound hole. They are too large for most guitars. Does Martin, Gibson, and Taylor have problems with this chemical fiber cocktail contacting the finishes of their sound holes ?

          They changed the sound hole sack and lined it to be almost moisture proof and requiring it to be folded over a string and clipped. This should make the packets last since no air can get in and out.

          The pouch that lives in with the peg head remains unchanged. I can't find any photos of what I've received on Planet Waves sites, GC sites, or MF sites.

                My acoustic guitar always suffered in dry winters. The back would warp, and once the bridge even popped off from the front bowing excessively. These humidity packs solved the problem completely, and I'm finding each replacement set lasts about 2-3 months through michigan winters.

                The older version made by Planet Waves was a great product that I used for several years with no problems, but the updated model by D'Addario seems like its quality has been reduced to save cost. The packs are smaller and now made of cheaper, brown paper. The cloth pouches are also of much lower quality on the combined packs. Very disappointed and afraid to use them now. Seems like quality was sacrificed to save production costs. Don't want to risk using them on my quality acoustics. Hope they fix these issues!

                  I was skeptical at first, but after a couple of years use this is all I use. They last at least six months and eliminate the hassle and mess of buying/storing/using demin water.

                        Humidipack works great. I just put the two pack in my guitars sound hole, and the other pack by the area of the guitar head stock. Thats it, your instrument will stay properly hydrated. No guess work. Your guitar will last, and sound the way it was intended by the manufacturer.

                            I can make the humidipaks last months longer by inserting an Oasis humidifier into each pack. Costs more up front but you save in the long run.

                            Why use both? The humidipaks keep the humidity at a constant 45-50%. It's the change in humidity that can damage an instrument.

                            Even though I live in the desert my system works. I've had humidipaks last as long as 8-9 months as long as I'm diligent about not letting the Oasis humidifiers dry out.

                                Humidifying your guitar is a smart thing to do if you love your guitar. It is one of those situations, however, where you will not immediately see results. You will not be able to sit and watch your instrument getting humidified. So, do they work well? I trust that they do. Planet Waves humidipaks are easy to use, easy on your guitar and are safe. I haven't seen them go on sale very often but when that happens, I take advantage because they are a bit pricey.

                                  I have been using these humidipacks for my all solid wood acoustic guitars for many years now. I am very happy with the results. I have not had to take my guitars in for adjustments in intonation but once in the past 7 years. I will take that. They are sounding better than ever. It is nice to be able to keep the humidipack in the guitar and case. I do like to run a humidifier in the music room once or twice a week to increase the humidity. This extends the the life of the humidipack to 3 months or more. I live in a dry climate. I hope this helps.

                                    Considering my guitars are better than my playing I want them to continue sounding great while avoiding damage caused by fluxuation in humidity. The himidipak does the trick; they are easy to use and effective.
