Affordable humidity/temperature monitor.
Experienced luthiers try to maintain 40-50 percent relative humidity in their shops, the range at which wooden stringed instruments are most stable. Excess dryness causes wood to shrink and crack. Too much moisture can cause wood to swell, and newly-sprayed finishes to blush.

The easy-to-read display provides relative humidity and Fahrenheit/Celsius temperature at a glance. A memory function stores minimum and maximum daily readouts. Unlike analog gauges, the unit has no imprecise moving parts and never needs calibration. It operates between 20-99 percent relative humidity, with reliable accuracy to 1 percent.

A handy magnetic mount and battery are included.
Dimensions: 3-1/2" x 1-1/4" x 1/4" (90mm x 32mm x 6mm). Super-slim to fit in your guitar case, too!
5-year manufacturer's warranty.

Essential tool for luthiers

To know the relative humidity when gluing on an instrument's braces is a non negotiable. Players also benefit from this knowledge of low humnidity in order to know when to use a humidifier in order to save them expensive crack repairs.

Know your humidity!

I purchased two of these units, one for the house and one for the shop. I'm very happy with the size and quality of these units. I can now manage the humidity in the shop intelligently rather than guessing.

Very handy

I've tinkered with different methods of humidifying guitars, but was never sure whether I was under or over humidifying. Over the first few weeks owning this, I have tested out each case, room, closet etc. So now I know exactly how well my efforts to humidify are or are not working.

This tool gives you an instant reading in any room, in a case, etc. I live in a desert (10% humidity during most of the year, 30% on the few days it is actually raining), so I've learned that there's really no such thing as too much humidity in my cases. If you live somewhere where you must adjust your habits between humid summers and dry heated winters, this will be very helpful as well.
