    For individual uke monitoring, I've been using this one, usually used for egg incubation... w/ probe in the case & display outside the case.

    I have 2 free standing/wall traceable® hygrometers, which can be sent in for calibration periodically https://www.traceable.com/calibration-info. Any individual hygrometers I add can be checked against the traceable ones for ballpark accuracy.

    I bet a regular digital room thermometer would also work. Of course, I would check it for accuracy. If it's not accurate, the test will let you figure the percent of error. You can work with that percent, rather than returning it trying another one.

    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    Thanks for the tips, everyone. I am going to try the egg hygrometer--I can run the sensor into the case and into the sound hole alongside my humidifier.

    As a result of this thread I purchased two of the Oasis hygrometers for my cases this winter. I have a room analog hygrometer that I have used for the past several years (I do humidify the room during the winter).So I put the two Oasis next to where I play and they both read 52%. The analog is reading 62%. So I play for a half hour or so and the Oasis now reads 45%. This keeps on for several days. Yesterday I realized that when I play I turn on a lamp. Wonder if the heat from the light affects the hygrometer. So I move one of the Oasis several feet from where I play.. It now reads 68% (it is very humid outside here today and I have a window open). The Oasis where I play next to the lamp is 52%. Just an FYI abut where you should be placing your hygrometers.

    Just how precise must one be with the humidity to ensure that their ukulele is being cared for in a reasonable manner? How much time does it take for the ravages of dryness to destroy a ukulele? Does it take minutes, hours, months, years? I have my own opinions based on my own very limited experiences.
    I don't want to live in a world that is linear.
