It is cheap enough. But how well it works....I don't know. The top of my unit is very difficult to get off to gain access to the sponge. The two plastic clips that hold on the top are very small and flimsy. I am afraid they will break off every time I remove the top to get to the sponge.
I put a humidity meter in the case with the guitar and the guitar humidifier after wetting the sponge. The reading before I put in the meter and the reading after 48 hours were the same. I checked the meter and it is working properly. So this thing might work but not enough to register on a humidity meter. This thing might make you think it's working but I doubt it.
In my opinion having a room humidifier is the best answer.

    Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Acoustic Guitar Humidifier:

    I like this but I wish the sponge were bigger. I live in a dry climate with low humidity and have to moisten it every day, but overall a small price to pay to keep the wood hydrated.

      Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Acoustic Guitar Humidifier:

      My 1972 Ovation was always fine in Phoenix but up here in Flagstaff at a dry 7000 feet it started to show that I had neglected it. Ovation cases don't have much loose room for other types of humidifiers and getting a plastic bag and sponge into the sound hole was problematic. This works fine, easy in, easy out. My top is coming back into form. This guitar has seen me through more life than anyone else. I'd like to keep it.

        Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Acoustic Guitar Humidifier:

        I used to use the previous generation of this product (sealed with wet flower foam inside). It was a bit fiddly to use - it took a while to fill/shake/wipe it but it did last for several days at a time. This version is much quicker to wet...and much quicker to dry. If you just have one or two guitars you play every couple of days it will help but the sponge just doesn't hold much water. I use these in conjunction a with flower-foam medicine bottle (with a few holes drilled or melted-in) in the accessory compartment or in a towel near the headstock and they are OK for a few days in the winter. The Music Nomad Humitar is a longer-lasting solution - it's sponge material holds much more water if you can stand the higher price.

            I bought 2 of these for Ukulele. It works for my Tenor but is a bit too big for my Concert. You need a sound hole at least 2 1/2 inches in diameter and a depth of instrument of about 3 inches and smaller and it won't fit. It is easy to use and works well with nothing wet touching the instrument and tuning seems to last much longer.

              Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Acoustic Guitar Humidifier:

              You could get nuts with humidifiers and spend a bundle. Slowly but surely my home is turning more and more toward Breedlove and a few are the more expensive models when I catch them at steep discounts. These humidifiers don't make me feel like an irresponsible owner. Heat my house with wood and these things last a good few weeks in case. Guitars do not suffer from too wet or too dry while in cases.

              Not sure of effectiveness in guitars outside of case, and standing up right not in case these things are not stable and hang at odd angle.

                        I live in the Sonoran Desert--hard to keep instruments hydrated, so I put 2 in the guitar's sound hole. I have quite a few acoustic guitars, and have to "water" frequently. I have used "Oasis" humidifiers, but out of three I have owned, two have begun to leak--so, given a choice, I'll use the Planet Waves.

                            I got one of these for my Epiphone Masterbilt. Nothing fancy here, it just does what it's supposed to do, which is all I wanted. Easy access to the sponge and there are two little grooves on each side of the plastic case that secure it to the middle 2 strings and it stays in place nicely. I suspect some of the reviews complaining about the sponge getting moldy quickly did not use distilled water (it specifically says on the back of the package to only use distilled water). I bought a gallon and I reckon that will last me for a few years. If you have a solid wood acoustic I would recommend picking one of these up as it could prevent heaps of problems to your axe in the future, especially if you live in a really dry climate.

                                Follow the instructions, use common sense, ask questions if you're unsure and this inexpensive device will keep your acoustic guitar adequately humidified during the heating season when the air gets dry.
                                This is simple to use. You must: use distilled water; don't overfill it and check it often until you get a feel for water consumption. Bear in mind that this is designed to work while the guitar is in a closed case.
                                The reason I use this type of device is because it does not come in contact with anything on the guitar, it is suspended in the sound hole between the 3rd & 4th strings. Simple design & effective.
