Boveda vs D’ Addario


Recommended Posts

It looks like the D’Addario packs are twice the cost of Boveda packs. I am assuming they are both basically the same. Any thoughts?

I was under the impression Boveda owns the rights and manufactures the packets that get marketed.  I’m trying the Humidipak system in one acoustic this season and using their Humiditrak BT to monitor that guitar vs one with Dampit /Music nomad sponges.  Sweetwater had D’Addario starter packs cheaper than Boveda, so we’ll see.   Are packets interchangeable in either pouch system?

The most compelling reason to try was their claim of reducing humidity during warmer months when our A/C wasn’t needed.  I found internal RH% over 65 in a case and was cautioned such levels over long periods could lead to bracing failure.
