The Bally II Humidor features a clear glass top to easily see what cigars are inside. Inside of this beautiful humidor you will find that it is completely covered with Spanish cedar. You will find an easy to remove tray and cigar divider in the interior for your sorting needs.
This humidor is of great craftsmanship. The veneers are flawless and the glass top is very nice. It seems to be well constructed and the interior is Spanish cedar and very smoothly finished. The lid seals well. The chief complaint I have is the huge humidifier device that it comes with. the instructions say attach it to the lid but that would defeat the purpose of a glass top. Attaching it under the upper tray is an option but limits space under the shelf. The hygrometer is a nice looking but cheap plastic one. It comes out easily for calibration or replacement but seems to be sealed well. It is a good humidor for the price and looks great. May want to make a couple of upgrades though.
As with the other reviews, for the price this is an awesome humidor. Built solid seems to close tight. I ve started the seasoning process and seems to be working fine. The only problem I ve come across is what to do with the humidifier device. Included instructions state to attach to the lid .. well, duh .. it s a glass top ? So now where to put it, I searched the web for suggestions, and have found that most glass top humidors come with a special department to put the humidifier. Can t attach this one to the side because the shelf rail isn t tall enough. only real place is the back wall which is not great since it will come in contact with your cigars or under the shelf.. which then you can t stack the cigars very high taking up all the room. In short, get the jar of beads and just roll your eyes at the included humidifier.
I am just beginning to smoke cigars and used to keep them in mason jars along with other things. It s kind of expensive but this one was on sale and it was definitely worth it! The humidor is just the right size and the wood looks nice. Some people might have problems with the hygrometer but I just did a salt test on mine and tweaked it to the right % and it works fine. This is a must have for any cigar smoker. I may be just beginning to smoke but I know this is a good buy.
