    Oasis Humigel Replacement kit
    Features:

    HumigelTM crystals are of critical importance for the successful use of our humidifiers. The ONLY reason for the use of the crystals is to reduce the risk of damage to your instrument from potential leaks. HumigelTM crystals are very hygroscopic and hold up to 400 times their weight in water. We add .3 cc’s of crystals prior to packaging. This is such a small quantity that you can barely see them at the bottom of the humidifier. The best way to tell if they are present is to shake the humidifier and hear them rattle around. .3 cc’s is the amount needed to turn the water into jelly. Unlike water, the jelly is semi-solid and will contain the water should the humidifier become damaged. With the crystals present, a damaged humidifier will become damp or have water spots but will not leak into you’re instrument. More than .3 cc’s of Humigel crystals will reduce the ability of the humidifier to function. When there are too many crystals, the water stays suspended in the crystals, and will not evaporate through the fabric of the humidifier, and cannot humidify your instrument. After initially filling your humidifier with distilled water wait 10 minutes. When you look into the humidifier, it should look like clear small curd cottage cheese. If it doesn’t look this way, and you have standing water, you need to get a HumigelTM refill kit and replace the crystals. Each kit holds 6-8 refills. As long as you reseal the small zip lock bag inside the kit and leave the desiccant bag in place, the kit will last a long time. Without resealing and the desiccant bag, the crystals cake up with water absorbed from the air. Most instruments only need seasonal humidification. Typically, the humidity drops in the fall and rises in the spring. When the spring arrives, we recommend that you remove the humidifier, wash all of the crystals out, and leave the cap loosely on the humidifier. If you do not remove the crystals and loosen the cap, the humidifier will shrink up, dry up and the crystals will stick together. In the fall, it is easy to damage the lining of the humidifier when trying to restore it to shape. The lining is only 1/1000th of an inch thick and can be damaged easily if it sticks to itself and the crystals, when the humidifier shrinks up and dries up if the lid is left on tight.

    Oasis in Case Humidifier (Cello)
    Features:

    The Oasis Case Plus+ Humidifier uses the same evaporative membrane as the Oasis Plus+ Humidifier, providing 50% more daily humidity than the Oasis Case Humidifier. This humidifier is designed for use in drier environments where the relative humidity is below 25%. The Oasis Case Plus+ humidifier, like the Oasis Case Humidifier, uses a small but powerful magnet, which is embedded in the seam of the humidifier, to attach to either a small sticky-backed piece of stainless steel or a metal clip (both are provided with the humidifier). The Oasis Case Plus+ Humidifier can be used in stringed instrument cases such as violin, viola cello, guitar, or mandolin. Our case style humidifiers attach to the inside of your instrument case. They give you the same reliability and ease of use as our original humidifiers, outperforming other case and instrument humidifiers by doing the following: Making it easy to see when it’s time to refill. Providing long-lasting humidification. Ensuring no leakage due to overfilling. Promising two levels of leak protection. How does it work? A neodymium magnet* in the humidifier enables you securely attach it inside your case, while still being able to easily remove and re-attach it to either a steel belt-style clip or a stainless steel strip with adhesive backing (both are provided with the humidifier). The belt-style clip fits over the side of your case, providing a flat vertical surface to which the magnet can adhere. The adhesive-backed stainless steel strip allows for either vertical or horizontal attachment anywhere there is a flat surface inside the case.** This type of humidifier provides the flexibility to position the humidifier in a wide variety of locations within your instrument case. Because tap and bottled water contain dissolved minerals that can clog the liner, distilled water is recommended to extend the useful life of your humidifier.

    Oasis in Case Humidifier (Violin or Viola)
    Features:

    The huge success of our original blue Oasis® "sound-hole" Guitar Humidifier brought numerous inquiries about how to provide humidification for other wooden instruments such as violins, violas, cellos, mandolins, jazz guitars, guitars with flat top cases, and some woodwind instruments like clarinets. After careful consideration and research, we developed our Oasis® Case Humidifier. This style of Oasis® humidifier attaches to the inside of your instrument case. It gives you the same reliability and ease of use as our original humidifier, outperforming other case and instrument humidifiers by doing the following: Making it easy to see when it’s time to refill. Providing long-lasting humidification. Ensuring no leakage due to overfilling. Promising two levels of leak protection. Oasis case humidifier in useHow does it work?

A 10cc. syringe comes with the humidifier increasing your control while filling and refilling. Since the Oasis® Case Humidifier holds about 32cc’s of water, it will take 3+ syringes of water to fill the first time. After that, refills should only take 1+ syringe of water. Because tap and bottled water contain dissolved minerals that can clog the liner, distilled water is recommended to extend the useful life of your humidifier.
