I went out humidifier shopping this past week, as my old ultrasonic one died. My cancer adventure means I require a decent humidity level for comfort. I discovered one that I think I may purchase for my bass room as well. Most inexpensive wick type units I have seen have little or no adjustments other than possibly motor speed. And decent humidistats can be expensive; I learned the hard way about cheap one's false guidance. I bought a Holmes Warm Mist Humidifier, Model Number HM 5700, and am thusfar very pleased with it and its features. Unlike others in its price range ($40), it has a digital programmable humidistat, so you can set it and forget it, other than refilling it occasionally. See it at http://www.walmart.com/catalog/prod...14&cat=5431&type=1&dept=5431&path=0:5431:5431 - I saw it at KMart, but got mine at BJ's Wholesale Club, where they have a little sticker that entitles you to a $10 rebate. It seems to be pretty accurate-- it is in my bedroom, and I had it set to 45%, which it achieved easily, and shut itself off. In the morning both the preset and readout levels were 45%; after taking a shower in the attached master bath, I noted that the readout went up to 50%, the present remained at 45%. Just a heads up-- seems like an inexpensive and less troublesome way to keep your carved bass happy.
