"….a downright inexpensive and simple case humidifier has been getting attention and deserved consideration. It’s called the HUMISTAT, and until recently discovered by guitarists, it was the well-kept secret of the classical instrument community…If you live in an environment that has constant fluctuation of temperature and humidity, you can easily tweak just how much moisture you need….Simple, small, cheap, adjustable, effective—what’s not to like?"

− Review, Just Jazz Guitar magazine

"HUMISTAT humidifiers are certainly an effective way to protect your valuable bagpipe. They are well-made, relatively inexpensive, and easy to use. They maintain a constant moisture level that is particularly important in preventing shrinkage that can cause rotating joints and mounts to fall off. We keep a HUMISTAT humidifier and hygrometer in every case we have in stock."

− Brett Tidswell, Principal of Piping, Australian Pipe Band College. www.schoolofpiping.com

"Stylish, very effective, and so well-priced: Humistat humidifiers are fantastic devices and unrivalled … I think they’re even superior in many ways to high-priced electronic models."

− Lindsay Adams, Principal violist, Sydney (Australia) Ensemble. Professional Teacher and Musician.

"When we're not on tour, we live in Chile, which has one of the driest climates anywhere – the Humistat No. 1s are in all the cases of Jim's mandolins and Francisca's Irish flutes. Jim's touring life takes us all over the planet as well – the instruments experience severe humidity and temperature extremes, from Rio de Janeiro's summer to North Dakota's winter, from Singapore to Dubai, and all the instruments have survived just fine. The humidifiers are very convenient to maintain, which is much appreciated in this hectic lifestyle."

− Jim Bevan (mandolin) and Francisca Sanchez (Irish flute) World-Touring Professional Musicians (Chile, S.A.)

"What amazing products HUMISTAT humidifiers are! As a professional guitarist, I have toured the world and tried your competitors’ products. None did the job the ways yours do—in fact, some leaked and caused very costly water damage to my expensive instruments. I really appreciate the fact that I can monitor and control the humidity without the blatant guesswork needed with all the other brands. I thank you and so do my guitars. They can rest well knowing your HUMISTAT humidifiers will be there for them."

− James Hunley, Concert Classical Guitarist, (Los Angeles, CA) www.theacousticexperience.com

"I have tried virtually all humidifiers for violins, in wildly differing climates. I have found the Humistat to be the easiest, safest, most effective and user-friendly humidifier available. It keeps the humidity level in my case constant—which keeps my 200-year-old violin very happy!"

− Dee Ann Fleming, Professional Violinist/Industry Professional (Irvine, CA)

"All musicians want to avoid having to bring their instruments in for repair. Your humidifiers are really a great, low-cost means of prevention. Given your humidifier’s variable/adjustable humidity control, and the optional “Humistat” hygrometer, you're obviously more interested in instrument care than just in selling humidifiers. Keep up the good work!"

− Jim Clinton, Cellist, Violin Restoration Shop Owner VP Southern Violin Association (Taylor, SC)

"What an awesome system to keep my flutes at just the perfect humidity. It is really amazing and, unlike other humidifiers that are too bulky, or need to be refilled every day, they are easy to use, adjustable, and effective under all conditions! Truly ideal."

− Miguel Yisrael, Internationally Renowned Lutist, Paris (France) www.miguelyisrael.com

"...For us woodwind doublers (I play the oboe and the clarinet), an easy to-use and efficient humidifier is an absolute necessity. I've experimented with many, but yours are clearly the best. They really do what you say they do: They’re convenient, they’re small and fit in my cases without getting in the way, they’re easy to fill, their output is efficient and can be controlled, and I don’t have to worry about leaks (which I can’t say about other brands I’ve tried). Frankly, I’m surprised they are so reasonably priced (but don’t raise the prices on my account!). In short, they’re brilliantly designed and flawlessly executed."

− Fred Sterns, Bass Clarinet, McLean (VA) Symphony

"I’ve used one of your humidifiers to protect my violin for a number of years and it does an excellent job. It keeps everything in the case—including my bow, which is very susceptible to dry air -- at just the right humidity. It is much better than any other product I’ve ever tried."

− John Pricer, Violinist, Port Orchard (WA)

"I'm convinced. Your Humistat humidifiers are second to none! What I require in a humidifying product is a gradual and controllable release of humidity, and not having to constantly re-fill it. Out of all the different brands and types of humidifiers I've tried over the years, only yours meet all those needs--and they do it beautifully. The others would often release way too much humidity at the start, then dry up and be of little, if any, use. And I was always concerned about leaks. By the way, I’ve found that they're also a great aid for my music students, especially younger ones who tend to forget to check and, if necessary, fill--any product that needs daily attention. I find that your humidifiers only need to be filled with water about once a week."
