I read that the ukulele humidifiers output is half of their blue guitar humidifier... so whats the maximum output of the oasis? im not really sure where i read this but i think ive read about some people using the guitar humidifier for their ukulele..

I'll know soon, since I ordered a hygrometer to test how well my humidifiers are working, and I have the Oasis uke model. I'll post details.

I use the Case Humidifier, but they also make a Case + (50% more daily humidity supply) version which is for dry climates (under 25%)
http://oasishumidifiers.com/caseplus.html
In their list of instruments for both of these humidifiers, they list violin and mandolin, which is close to the size of uke cases.
I have not had any problems using the OH-6 in Los Angeles, where it can get very dry some days (17%), yet I am also about 4 miles from the ocean. I am surprised how often I have to refill... about once every 7- 10 days in the summer.

I got a chance to check this. With the Oasis Ukulele humidifier sealed inside a hard case, the humidity level measure around 60% (ambient humidity level measures around 35%). That's with me opening the case periodically to take out the uke and play on it (although I close the lid immediately after removing the uke).

I'm currently testing a homemade gel-type humidifier as well to see how it measures up, and so far it looks like it's giving comparable results. I'll post results in a few days after I've had a chance to try a variety of different scenarios.

thanks noobie. but isnt 60% humidity a little too much for a ukulele?
