MusicNomad Equipment Care has released The HumiReader humidity and temperature monitor.
The patent pending HumiReader hygrometer is made to work in 3 convenient ways: hanging between the strings down into the soundhole of an acoustic bass guitar, placed inside its holster and attached to your electric bass instrument case wall or set out on a shelf or other flat surface to monitor the room. The dial has large numbers that display temperature in either Fahrenheit or Celsius. The safe zone humidity range is conveniently printed on the side of the device. A bottom sensor takes a reading every 20 seconds and displays the high and low humidity level range since the last reset in addition to the current temperature and humidity level.
The HumiReader works well in tandem with the Humitar soundhole humidifier and the Case Humitar. The Humitar series humidifiers put moisture into an acoustic bass guitar and case; the HumiReader measures your humidity level. “It’s a system we developed that follows our goal of making an easy to use, safe, affordable and long lasting solution to tackle the problem of warped and cracked equipment. Since the critical place to measure humidity and temperature is inside the acoustic guitar soundhole, guitarists may now do this with the Humireader,” says Rand Rognlien, product developer and CEO of MusicNomad.
MusicNomad’s Humidification line has quadrupled in the past year. “The success of our soundhole Humitar led to the expansion of this line adding the Humilele, Humireader and Case Humitar,” says Rognlien. The HumiReader retails between $29.99 – $34.99.
