Humidipak is Boveda - Boveda® Official Site | Find Boveda Here!

These things kind of fell off the radar when the name changed to Boveda, but they still work well for a low maintenance system. I use them when a guitar will be sitting in the case for a while and I don't want to keep checking it.

I put my one of my Taylors in the closet last fall, its a cool spot not too dry. I forgot about it, and pulled it out today, almost 6 months doing nothing with 25% rh in the rest of the basement and the meter showed perfect 50%, and the little pouches were still perfect with no leaking, drying out etc.

And, you gotta love Taylor guitars, it was still perfectly in tune...lol

Im in the club now to. Im too humid here most times and put the humidipak pouchs in 3 months ago or so, they seem to have done the job keeping down the moisture content and the guitar sounds better for them.I think to get the best de humidification its best to start in a 45 or 50 % range if possible, Im not sure if your at 75-80% they can bring it down very quickly but they do maintain 45-50 very well, during our freeze up my house was dry (50%) and I thru them in, - now they seem to be getting harder so I guess its time for the refill purchase j

I use them with my Taylor which is always in it's case when not in use. The first time I tried them, they went hard after about 3 months. Since then, I'm easily getting 6-8 months out of them.
