This humidifier does what it is supposed to do. I own several humidifiers of different brands,I would say that they all do what they are supposed to do but, in a pinch this can be used as a soundhole plug also. The best soundhole plug by far is the Lute Hole. I have even made a few humidifiers that work very well, not real pretty but none the less they work. No matter what you use to humidify your instrument just do it, it's worth the effort to prevent damage. A hygometer is also a wothwhile investment I switch mine from instrument to instrument periodicly just to check the humidity levels in the case. In most cases the area that supports the neck creates an air dam between the neck and body and you really should use 2 humidifiers one in the headstock neck area and one in or very close to the soundhole area. Be very careful not to over humidify this can be as bad as not enough humidity. Just pay attention and check your instruments periodicly especially in dry weather times, use a hygrometer and, by far the best protection for your instrument is to keep it in the case when not in use.

I bought this Kyser soundhole humidifier thinking that it was going to work well and save my acoustic from the 30% humidity in my house. Well, I was wrong. I did manage to take off the plastic ring that is of no value, but after two days of the humidifier in the guitar, I noticed water buildup on the top of the soundhole where the sides of the humidifier rests on the body. I wrung out the humidifier and tried again. Less than 5 hours later, the water was back. I now keep that humidifier in its plastic covering with the instructions awaiting return and have since been using a more efficient room humidifier and bought an Oasis Blue humidifier instead (Highly Recommended as better alternative)...Now I don't worry over the relative humidity in my house anymore. Be advised and watch out for this problem with the Kyser soundhole humidifier. I think any others, like the Planet Waves would work better too.

      I bought a damaged guitar with a top wood split probably caused from drying out. I bought the full sound hole type to humidify the box before repairs. Worked well.

          Want to ruin your guitar? Use these things! I tried using them in my two new Martins, and after I had trouble installing them in the sound holes, I removed them to see if they had leaked water into the guitars. Both guitars had small puddles of water in them! And I had done a good job making sure the de-humdidifiers had been squeezed free of excessive water! Do not buy these guitar de-humidifiers, unless you want to ruin your guitars!

              This is a great alternative for humidifying your guitar. I was using the wedges that slip between the strings, but like that this covers the sound hole. The only problem is figuring out how wet it is, as the wedges had a sponge that was easy to examine.

              It looks very good, first time user I found out that it's a hassle when insert into the guitar and when removal out of the guitar especially when the guitar strings on the way. I like the idea it could easier just need to modify a bit.
              I think it's little too much for the price.

                  This is a great humidifier and it's nice that it keeps the humidity inside the guitar. Just make sure you don't make it too full and you'll be fine.

                      I use this with my 12-string Alvarez Jumbo and it has served me well for several years. I have a different style for 2 other guitars and I really can't tell a difference between the two styles. I do like that this one closes off the sound hole just keeping only the guitar body humidified.

                          It works fine for the job it is intended for. Just add a small amount of water and squeeze out any excess water the sponge just has to be damp. I also wipe it off with a paper towel then let it stand in the open air for about 30 minutes check and see if I can get any more water out. If water does not drip out then I install it and close the case. I check it every time I open the case and if it needs it add water a repeat the above before it goes back in the guitar.

                              I like the idea of this providing humidity to the guitar and not all over the case to. That said it did not work for my Taylor mini very well. It is to difficult to fit in the sound hole. The problem may not be with the product as they do list sound hole sizes. I assumed and well you know what happens when we assume. My bad. MF service was excellent as usual

                              i followed instructions and dried it well but i was queezy to put a wet humidifier in my guitar--so i solved the problem. simply get a 2 or 3 cc syringe and fill it with water then syringe in the water into the 6 sponge holes on the back of humidifier. works perfect --eliminate WORRY. il order another kyser for my other guitar.
