Mark Barrett replied to Mike Bishop's discussion Time for a Change in the group Martin Owners

"Glad to hear Mike. I also have an MMV that I love and struggle with the thinner neck at times. Found a great buy on an OMCPA4 that may make me part with my D16."

"I have been using the Humidipak system for about a year, and have not been impressed with their impact. Probably on an average I would say they have about a 3 - 5% impact as compared to the outside the case environment! that's about it. When…"
