Music Nomad's Humitar is an easy-to-use, no-mess, low-maintenance guitar humidifier. Acoustic guitar wood needs moisture to play and look its best, and the Humitar safely releases moisture evenly to eliminate warping, shrinking, and cracking. The innovative Humid-i-Bar sponge holds a lot of water and has anti-drip properties, which means less monitoring on your end while your instrument is being cared for. It is easy to check on--simply pop the top and touch the Humid-i-Bar. If it's wet, leave it; if it's dry, then it's time to rehydrate. Rehydrating is also a cinch--remove the Humid-i-Bar sponge, soak it in distilled water, and reinstall. Easy, no mess, and low maintenance.

It is simple. You wet the sponge, put the sponge into the unit, and put it in your guitar between the strings, then put your guitar in a decent hardshell case. It may seem like any other guitar humidifier, but it is no ordinary sponge. It soaks up more water (use distilled, NOT TAP), dispenses the water carefully, and seems to stay hydrated for a long time.
I recently left my house and guitars for a month, in the cold winter weather with the drying forced-air heat on. When I returned, I was scared to open the cases. To my surprise, the sponges were still wet! This could be because I had the heat turned down to 60, and in my guitar room, I closed the heat vent and closed the door, so it was probably 50 degrees in here. Still, I was amazed.
The Humitar sponge is different. I have seen similar sponges, such as the one that came with the built-in humidifier in my Guild case. However, the difference between the regular sponge and the Humitar sponge is night and day. The regular sponge was dry as a bone when I returned, is hard as a rock and does not absorb readily (and apparently gives up moisture quickly); the Humitar sponge was still damp, takes moisture easily, and gives it out with discretion.
Previously, I have used Oasis humidifiers, but I do not like the weird toxic crystals they use, nor do I like their tendency to mold when nearly dried up (although this could be because I used tap water--ALWAYS USE DISTILLED!). They need refilling more frequently (though I will say that my remaining Oasis units were not quite dry yet either when I returned from my month away; however, the Humitar was significantly wetter when I returned).
I've also used the Keyser soundhole humidifier, and I really like them, but they do not work if you have a soundhole-mounted pickup control, and they need refilling more frequently. They also only give humidity to the inside of the guitar, which is one of their benefits but also one of their cons (the neck needs humidity as well).
I now use a Herco in each of my case compartments (cheap and simple, though I'm not sure how much they actually do) and a Humitar in the sound hole. I know there are other humidity systems out there that get good reviews, like D'Addario's, but it seems more complicated to use.
As my remaining Oasis humidifiers die, I will keep replacing them with the Humitar. I am tempted to buy some extras of these just in case they go off the market.
Caveats: These are made in China and imported. I have no idea about their environmental impact, condition of the factory, or treatment/payment of the workers. They are fantastic quality, but that doesn't mean they are made in a sustainable fashion (I expect they are not) or that the workers are making a living wage and working sensible hours and receiving humane treatment. I realize this is part for the course, as most of our stuff these days is made in these conditions. I would happily pay more for this were it made in the US sustainably and with happy workers. As it stands, since it is an import, I think the price might be a little high.
The sponge in these humidifiers holds like 6 to 10 times its' weight in distilled water. Never ever drips if you give it a tiny squeeze or a shake before sliding it in.
You will never go wrong with any Music Nomad product. They design and build products that work.
