Humidifier

Protect your beloved instrument and keep it in great playing condition by maintaining the relative humidity in its case to the 40-60% range. If you condition your air with heat or cooling, or if you live in a dry area, this is an essential add on. 

We have experimented with over a dozen different humidification systems that can be used with ukulele and found these three to be the most effective. 

1. Humistat Model #1

The only adjustable humidifier for instruments, it takes only moments to quickly change the amount of humidity they release. It is easy to fill and is very durable.

Simple to use, yet highly effective and reliable. They won't leak. Easy refillable.

You can see the water level and know precisely when to add more.

Designed to last: Made from a clear polycarbonate used in construction and football helmets. No refills to buy, no chemicals, gels, crystals, sponges, tubes, or chalk. Just water.

2. Oasis OH-18

This is the humidifier that we suggest to anyone getting a solid wood ukulele that lives in a fairly dry climate, or has periods of the year that get very dry. This should cover you up to 25% humidity. If it gets below that the OH-32 is much more effective.

  • The mounting system allows the humidifier to hang horizontally inside the ukulele rather than vertical (like the guitar humidifier).
  • Secondly, the humidity output is about 50% of the Royal Blue Oasis guitar humidifier, to accommodate the smaller instrument size. This also allows the humidifier to last twice as long between refills.

2. Oasis OH-32

While some people would think that a smaller instrument needs less humidification, you have to consider that the panels of wood on an ukulele are thinner than almost any other instrument. On top of that, the best instruments are often built lightly for an open resonance. These along with certain very hard woods require the proper environment even more. We are now offering this more effective humidifier for customers who frequently have 25% or lower relative humidity.

While the original Blue Oasis provides sufficient humidity in many environments, it is not as effective everywhere. If you are located in an extremely dry climate (15-25% RH), the OH-18 Ukulele humidifier will not provide sufficient humidity. But the OH-32 can do the job! 

We recommend the Oasis Hygrometer for monitoring the humidity levels inside your case. (You can find that here)

Setup Options

 

Current Turnaround Time: Amount of time before shipping-
Full Setup: 7-11 Days
Full Setup RUSH: 2-4 days
Basic QC Only: 2-4 days

Basic Quality Control - $0.00 (Always Free)

BASIC QUALITY CONTROL covers inspecting the instrument for any major defects that would have been missed by the factory and any faults in construction that could potentially damage or limit the functionality of the instrument over time. Any defective instruments are rejected and replaced.  We make sure that each Ukulele meets the basic standard for a brand new instrument and will be ready to play once you receive it. A final cleanup is also included after inspection before packing and shipment.

Full Setup - $40.00 for Ukuleles Under $399 / Free for Ukuleles $399+ 


Includes:


-Overall QC evaluation: To find defects in construction as well as to get an overall view of the instrument and note the areas that need extra attention and adjustment during the setup.

-Saddle Adjustment: The height of the saddle is lowered to reduce the distance between the strings and the fretboard, making it easier to play than the factory setup, especially higher up the fretboard.

-Nut Slot Adjustment: The depth, width, and angle of the nut slots are adjusted to create a more comfortable playing experience especially on the lower frets.

-Fret Dressing: After adjusting the nut and saddle heights, high spots in the fretboard or uneven frets will potentially cause fret buzz, dead spots, or other unwanted problems. The frets are filed to create a more consistent level across the fretboard. We then crown the frets to return their rounded curvature back to the top of each fret creating a clear contact point for each string. We then smooth and polish the frets and condition the fingerboard to bring them back to new condition.

-Final Cleanup: We always do a final overall cleanup of the instrument to make sure it is in new condition and ready to play before it is prepared for shipment.

Rush Setup & Delivery - Additional $50.00
The RUSH SETUP AND DELIVERY service is for customers who would still like to receive everything included in the full setup but on a shorter time frame. One of our setup technicians will work overtime outside of normal business hours to complete the setup within 2-3 days of the order being placed and immediately hand it over to the shipping department for packing and shipment. The $50.00 rush charge is in addition to the cost of the full setup. 

Additional services (see individual product listings to add these services to your order)
Re-stringing: We will replace the factory installed stock string set with a new set of your choosing. Select the “replace stock strings” option when adding your desired string set to the shopping cart.

Strap Button Installation: 1-2 buttons are installed to allow the use of a strap. Color options available. 

Pickup installation: for players who would like the option to play or record with amplification.

Friction Tuner Upgrade (friction tuners only): We offer upgrade options for select instruments with friction tuners to be retrofitted with new geared tuners for better precision and comfort when tuning.
