OVERVIEW

Effective and easy humidification mounted in the case of any wood instrument.

The huge success of the original Blue Oasis sound-hole humidifier has brought many inquiries about ways to provide humidification for other instruments including violins, violas, cellos, mandolins, ukuleles, jazz guitars and guitars with flat top cases.

After careful consideration, Oasis decided the best approach to solving this challenge was to develop a humidifier that attaches to the inside of the instrument case. Finding a secure way to attach the humidifier to the inside of the case, and still have it easily removed and reattached, was no small challenge.

With proven technology, the Blue Oasis humidifier, Oasis inserted two neodymium magnets in the seam of the humidifier. The magnets then attach to the instrument case using either a steel belt style clip or a stainless steel strip with adhesive backing. The belt style clip fits over the side of the case and provides a flat vertical surface for the magnets to adhere. The adhesive backed stainless steel strip allows for either vertical or horizontal attachment anywhere there is a flat surface inside the case. An advantage of this type of humidifier is the flexibility to position the humidifier in a wide variety of locations within your musical instrument's case.

A 10cc. syringe is also included. The syringe will increase the user's control during filling or refilling the humidifier. Since the Oasis humidifier holds about 32cc's of water, it will take 3+ syringes of water to fill the first time. After that, refills should only take 1+ syringe of water. As always, Oasis recommends the use of distilled water which will extend the useful life of your humidifier.

FEATURES
  • You can see when Oasis is ready for refill
  • Long lasting humidification
  • Won't leak due to overfilling

    This baby saved my guitar. I live where it gets very cold and dry, and the first winter after I got a really nice acoustic the dry air started to kill its neck. The wood started to shrink and the frets felt like the teeth of a saw blade, I was getting buzzing frets that couldn't be adjusted w/the truss rod unless the action was WAY high... My first experience w/the guitar shrinking because of no humidity. I got a lot of goofy advice on how to fix it and went w/the conservative - bought this Oasis, put it in the case, and in a few weeks my baby was back and nearly good as new. Eventually, the neck was AOK thanks to using this humidifier.I solved the sticky tape problem by super-gluing the sticky tape to the fuzzy lining of the case where the humidifier fit. Now that I've had it for about two years the only problem is that the seam where the REALLY STRONG magnets fit has opened up, and the humidifier doesn't stay in place. So, I guess it's time to get the super glue!If you own an acoustic guitar, this humidifier is a must-have item.

    These humidifiers are way over priced and not a real good design.Directions are poor. Can you lay it on its side?, don't know, Does the cap leak if you put it on its side ?, don't know. Basically if you have a factory case or tight to guitar case where do you put the thing in the accessory compartment ? don't know.I did not get a chance to try these till after the 45 day return policy was up. I just wasted money on the gimmick. A real lousy design, maybe good for a sloppy generic case.

                Magnet is not strong enough to hold in place. Humidifier will break free and move around the case!

                  The 1st one of these that I purchased had such a small magnet that it wouldn't stay put on the supplied clip and would roll around in the case hitting my guitar headstock. I filled the 2nd one with water and right away noticed it was leaking! I am glad that I caught it before I put it in my case! Hopefully the 3rd one will be better, but now I am nervous!

                      This is a great humidifier for use in the instrument case. I am not comfortable with putting humidifiers into the instrument sound holes. This is an excellent choice, if you feel the same way. You can see visually when to refill the humidifier. I suggest you use distilled water. The only slightly negative thing about the humidifier, is that the adhesive on the back of the magnetic strip to hold the humidifier on the instrument case, was not quite sticky enough. It was also difficult to remove the protective paper, to expose the adhesive. When you put the magnetic strip on your instrument case, rub it on hard, so it sticks good and the humidifier doesn't loosen.

                          Based on the recommendations of a very good friend of mine and my luthier, I have brought two of these products for my classical and acoustic guitars; I am glad I listen to them. It works great and makes no mess. As stated in the instructions, use distilled water (which is easy to obtain) for the crystals will last longer. When you do need to replace the crystals, the replacement crystals are very inexpensive to purchase; which you can buy at Musician's Friend. Overall, excellent product.

                            Comments about Oasis OH-6 Case Humidifier:

                            Bought one of these ages ago and used it to save a wonderful guitar on which the neck had started drying out (the frets were like a saw blade!). A month or two of keeping the case humidified w/this and voila! The guitar was back to normal. I live in the Northeast and sometimes we get 3-6 months of cold, dry weather that will trash your acoustic guitar if you don't keep it humidified. The Oasis products work really well at protecting.

                            The kit comes w/two methods of attaching the humidifier to your case: a metal clip or a stick-on metal plate. The humidifier tube has a super magnet in it that holds it to either and keeps it from rattling around in the case. Another trick (I do this on all my cases) is to super glue the stick-on plate to the furry inside lining of the case (usually just under where the neck rests, either at the headstock end or just above the bout). This keeps the humidifier tube in easy reach for removal/refilling and out of the way of the guitar, the compartment, etc. If you ever have to remove it, the plate can be carefully pried out and the super glue brushed or cut out of the furry lining. Works fine - I've done it twice on cases that I've sold off.

                            Before you give up on your guitar, if the neck's drying out, or before you TRASH your guitar living in a dry climate, buy an Oasis and baby your baby!
