D'Addario Humidipak System
The D'Addario Humidipak System is the only maintenance free, two-way humidity system for guitar. By adding or removing moisture on demand the Humidification Control System automatically maintains the optimal 45-50% relative humidity level within an instrument case. The technology behind this product eliminates humidity concerns regarding seasonal changes, geographic location, temperature, or other factors without any guesswork or mess from refilling the humidifier.
- Automatically protects your instrument against warping, cracks and other damage cause by lack of humidification.
- The first two-way humidity control that maintains a constant 45%-50% relative humidity level within your instruments case.
Common symptoms of a dry instrument include, sharp fret ends, neck bow (slight curve in guitar neck bringing the fretboard away from the strings), a sunken top, lower string height, buzzing notes, cracking of the neck and/or guitar body as well as a changes in the instruments tone.
D'Addario Humidipak System replacement packets are sold in pairs of 3 (PW-HPRP-03) and 12 (PW-HPRP-12).
On average, the packets will last 2-4 months depending on the geographic location and the conditions of which the instrument is exposed to.
No more dripping sponges or manual adjustments due to seasonal changes, geographic locations, temperature, or other factors. Unlike all refillable humidifiers, this humidification system provides true 'two-way' humidity control by releasing or absorbing purified water vapor to maintain a constant 45%-50% RH within a sealed environment (your instrument case) — the ideal climate for wooden instruments.

So my conclusion is that the low humidity, about 24 percent may have stressed the product, but if I have to buy replacements every 7 to 10 days for three severe winter months, then I need to do something different. Maybe just rely on the old wet sponge products again. I don't know. Maybe being frozen interfered with the products usefulness. I won't be ordering these anymore when the forecast for delivery is below 40 degrees. One thing I have done recently is ordered an ultrasonic humidifier which brought the 12 by 12 room where I keep and play my guitars up to the recommended 45 percent humidity in just a few hours. Of course I'll still used the humidifiers in my case when I travel. By the way; unless you keep your guitars inside a hard shell case, I seriously doubt any humidifier is going to protect your guitar in an environment at 20 to 30 percent humidity.
But this last batch of 12 only last about five weeks at best before they are as hard as rocks - and I'm placing them in cases that have been humidified - just replacing the packets.
The packets from the three packs seem to last much longer - maybe I just got a bad batch.
This system is a really easy, no/little maintenance way to keep your solid wood instruments safe from exposure to fluctuating humidity levels. I am going to grab a few more for my electrics too.
The sound hole pouches used to be set up like saddle bags. you would put a pouch on either side, then hang it over a couple of strings.
Now, they have a single pouch setup and a nasty plastic retainer to hold it in the sound hole.
The new plastic retainer has sharp edges that could scratch the finish on a guitar.
Obviously this is a major downgrade from a product that was totally soft and had no sharp edges - even though functionally, it is the same.
If you have a guitar costing many thousands, you do not want to risk marring its finish with a humidifier.
As to the longevity issue, I use the Planet Waves system AND an Oasis humidifier at the same time.
The Oasis is 'dumb' and will just increase humidity. If you put one in the case along with the Planet Waves system, it will act as a stabilizer and essentially keep the Planet Waves ones working indefinitely so long as you keep the Oasis one filled.
