OVERVIEW

Safe and simple guitar humidification.

The body of the Blue 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. By watching the Oasis humidifier shrink, you can determine when it is ready for refill. When refilling, 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 watertight container is your first line of defense against leaks. Humigel, the super absorbent polymer crystals inside the Oasis Humidifier, are your second line of defense. Humigel 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 instrument. The materials that touch your strings are relatively soft and will not scratch your strings. A blue polyurethane stabilizing bar fits over the neck of the guitar humidifier. Once positioned in the sound hole, the stabilizing bar lies across the guitar strings to ensure even weight distribution. Oasis never touches the body of your guitar.

For normal seasonal humidification (down to 25% relative humidity), most guitarists can rely on the original Blue Oasis. The Oasis provides humidification for 7-10 days before needing to be refilled.

I live in Colorado and use these year-round. Distilled water is a must for me since it seems like half of the Rocky Mountains are dissolved in our tap water. At 70 cents a gallon for distilled water (and a gallon lasts a very long time), it just makes sense for me.I've got a little over a dozen acoustic guitars with a wide value range, but I use these on every one of them -- even the cheap ones -- and I'm very pleased with the results. Tuning is stable -- a good sign of proper humidity control.One problem I've had with a couple of them: it seems that after a year or two, the constant shrinking (and crinkling) and unshrinking of the tube material causes spot leaks to develop, enough so that when you fill one you immediately see a wet spot (or two) show up on the outside. Also, the tube no longer shrinks as the humigel crystals dry out - air is leaking in. Oasis has very kindly replaced 2 of the ones I had that developed leaks (thanks!) but I've now got another one that is showing the signs. It's not a bad failure rate, really, considering how many I own, but if you only have one and it happens to you, then your failure rate is 100%. Ouch.Despite this minor complaint, I'll keep using them because they're the best and most cost-effective guitar humidifiers I've ever used. And my guitars - even the cheap ones -- deserve proper care.

It leaks

Bought this 11 months ago. It's had a very "easy" life. Never left the house, spent all it's time in a guitar case. Only used distilled water.

I noticed it had no water, but hadn't shrunk. Filled it, and there was a tiny bit of water on the outside. Shook it off, dried it on my shirt, and a few seconds later, felt more water. Squeezing gently exposed a leak in the bottom of the cylinder.

I will NOT buy another one. Waste of money, and a potential catastrophe.

Simplify Guitar Humidification

By Jim Gach

from Baltimore

Comments about Oasis OH-1 Original Guitar Humidifier:

I have been using a Kyser sound hole humidifier for years - worked well but messy and dificult to refill. The Oasis OH-1 is easy to use, the container collapses as a visual signal that it is time to add water. Provided syringe makes adding the water easy and mess free. Good product for anyone who has a serious acoustic guitar they want to keep appropriately hydrated.

      Comments about Oasis OH-1 Original Guitar Humidifier:

      From the pictures I thought this would be more presure on my strings than I would want. Not a problem. Then I was concerned about the weight of this causing a lean and tension to the neck. Again not a problem. Even with my Guild F150 standing up in the case leaning against the wall no problem as part of the body of the humidifier is up against the sound hole and no direct contact with the water part is touching the guitar. I do not know how well this would do bouncing in a vehicle or whatever on the way to a gig. It is easy to use, easy to refill and seems to be just what i need. I use this laying down in the case and sometimes standing up while it is leaning against the wall.

        Comments about Oasis OH-1 Original Guitar Humidifier:

        Great product, does what it says. This was recommended to me by Breedlove for my high-end acoustic. The only drawback is you have to spread the D and G strings quite far to insert it between them, which makes me a little uncomfortable, so I usually slacken the strings a bit.

        See all my reviews

        Comments about Oasis OH-1 Original Guitar Humidifier:

        After using the "Dampit" or sponge-type humidifier for some time, I really like this one better! The water you place inside this humidifier is captured inside by the absorption gel (like a disposable diaper) so there's no danger of over-wetting and getting too much moisture into your guitar. Plus, it's EZ to tell when it's ready for re-filling -- shrivels up like a prune. Altho a little pricey, it's safer and more foolproof than the sponge-type humidifiers.

                I am a bassist but also have several accoustic guitars, including a vintage Gibson. During the NE winters the house gets very dry. This humidifier gives me a safe, no drip method of keeping my axes from cracking.

                The Oasis does a good job the only complaint is getting it between the strings also use distilled water in case your water is mineral filled different places will be different as far as water is concerned.

                I bought one of these and the cap on it presses so hard onto my Martin Hardshell case that I will not use it. It is akin to buying Square tires and how I missed it when buying it I do not know. I will use it in the case for my Dulcimer but no way will I add the stress to my case and guitar/strings.

                This is a must if you own an acoustic instrument. Especially in a dry environment, 20% humidity. Just bhy the replacement crystals and change them every season.

                Use distilled water.

                  Comments about Oasis OH-1 Original Guitar Humidifier:

                  I own a Martin HD-35 and a very old D12-20. I am very fussy. I had the type that fits in the sound hole and I found (even when I was careful)light wear marks caused by the insertion and removal of the disc. The Oasis is fairly easy to use, once you get the hang of it. I have not noticed ANY string stretch or wear on strings. Don't over fill and be certain to screw the cap on tightly. It all makes sense compared with other types, especially for the price.

                  Comments about Oasis OH-1 Original Guitar Humidifier:

                  This was recommended by my Taylor Factory tech a couple years ago. It does work well, but runs dry in a couple days if your guitar is left on the stand in even a semi-dry climate (I live in Boston--radiators for heat). Once it runs dry, the gel inside dries out and it doesn't hold water as well and can mold. Price-wise though--buying another isn't a budget breaker and it does last longer than sponge-types and has little or no leakage, even when it's older.

                  This humidifier, is by far superior to most others in the same price range. Unlike many others, The humidifier itself never touches the wood on your guitar. I have a Taylor 310-CE acoustic.So this is money well spent on a good investment. I strongly reccomend this humidifier.
