D'Addario Humidipak PW-HPK-01 Two-Way Humidification System

The D'Addario Two-way Humidification System is a maintenance-free in-case humidifier that does away with the usual sponge and water system.

It is designed to provide 2-way humidity control, increasing or reducing the moisture as needed to maintain around 45% humidity level.

And it does all this without the need for maintenance and water refills, the downside being the need to replace the included pouches every 2 to 4 months.

Specifications:

  • Weight: 1.28 oz
  • Suspension: Packets are placed in Nylon pouches that you place in the soundhole and near the headstock
  • Longevity: Short

Pros
Convenience is the main strength of the D'Addario Humidipak, it is a true set and forget humidifier that works without any hitch for many. Satisfied users include those owners of different brands, including expensive guitars from Taylor and Martin.

Cons
There are a few who caution that this may dry up quicker in places with extreme humidity, while others aren't too happy with having to replace the packs regularly.

Overall
If you're looking for a hassle-free in-case humidifier for your acoustic guitars, then do checkout the D'Addario Humidipak.
