Effective humidifier
3 out of 4 found the following review helpful

Pros: I had a totally unproven (as far as I know) theory that gut strings didn't squeak so much in damp weather. I thought a humidifier would help, especially now we've got central heating to contend with as well. I think it's working but that's just a subjective opinion. The humidity indicator that came it shows that it's needed.

Cons: It needs a lot of soaking but that's more to do with the central heating. Anyway, it shows how dry the atmosphere in the house is at this time of year.

Other: I had actually got the violin one for my mandolin and a bigger one for the viola. I found that the viola one fitted the mandolin better and the violin one fitted my viola (it's got quite narrow f-holes).

One of the best way to keep your instrument safe.
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: It does help to keep my violin safe and give a warmer sound. It is very easy to use. I'm glad my teacher advised me about it.

Cons: Right now the only thing I don't like is the humidity card that comes with it, which is not very correct and sometime misleading.

Didn't fit a 3/4 violin!

Pros: It's a great product in theory but it didn't fit into the f hole of a 3/4 size viiolin, although meant to fit 3/4 to 4/4 sizes.

Cons: It didn't fit a 3/4 size violin.

Other: Need to offer a smaller option.

Too early to say

Pros: Easy to use

Cons: Don't like it dangling around in cello.

Other: Hard to assess its effectiveness. I'm experimenting with things that can affect the tone and it may be that my room is humid enough anyway. Perhaps I should've got a hygrometer first....??
