When i recv the 3 Hygroset meters on order, Im dumping all the 4 crap ones.

Comment by Robert Williamson on December 9, 2014 at 5:06pm

Martin, unless you spend a  high 2 or 3 figures on an analog Hygrometer, do not place any faith in the reading.

I have one analog by BIOS here that is 15% LOW at 75%, and 5% HIGH at 50%; their error is not linear across the range.

I guess your weather extremes are more severe than here in central North Carolina. For me, just knowing my attempts to control or change the humidity are having an effect is enough.

Comment by michael schwartz on December 9, 2014 at 2:27pm

Martin..please let us know. I took a quick look and my whole room( in the musicroom) humidistat was at 54% and the little ones in 2 cases were 56 each. The little one in my office is 58%. It's currently 34 degrees outside.

Comment by Martin van Dooremalen on December 9, 2014 at 2:09pm

Walt -  I have a couple of those but after using a blow dryer on them they would not read less than approx. 29% RH, but read right around 75% with a home calibration salt test. I'm thinking I want something a little more accurate. And if it turns out they are accurate compared to a Hygroset my mind will be more at ease.

Comment by michael schwartz on December 9, 2014 at 1:15pm

@Walt...I picked up a bunch of these a couple of years ago to keep in the guitar cases.

Comment by Walt Pilcher on December 9, 2014 at 12:50pm

I bought one of these a year or two ago. Not adjustable and I don't know how accurate, but it sure moves up and down in response to the changes in humidity in the room where I keep my guitars. In summer it reflects whether I have the dehumidifier on and in the cold months how much my Idylis ultrasonic humidifier is offsetting the drying effects of gas heating. I've learned that I want to keep it reading around 40 if I can. Don't know if that's the actual humidity, but it's where I like it. Can't beat the price, and free shipping!

Comment by Martin van Dooremalen on December 9, 2014 at 12:34pm

Good find on those Hygroset II rounds, Robert. I think I'll get a couple of those as well and get rid of the cheap and inconsistent MiC ones I have been putting up with.

Apologies if this has been posted before. I came across a great online article on shipping guitars - the reswt of his website is also very informative.
