copper shielding tape

Cuts easily and sticks well. Adhesive is conductive and the copper side takes a solder. Good gear.

Highly recommended

Very easy to work with, worth the results / value added to a properly sheilded electric instrument

Best tape for the best price

Title says it all. I've used it to shield all of my guitars, and more recently I made some LED strips to go on my buddy's car, and I used this tape to connect the lights once they were inserted in the strips.

works great!

Having all 3 sizes was nice. I used the widest roll for the control cavity, the medium-width roll for the p/u cavities, and the thin roll for the routed slot in-between for the wires. Using an x-acto knife I easily cut the tape to size. The conductive adhesive is nice too, and allowed me to overlay pieces without having to solder a connection between them. So now, not only am I devoid of buzz, the "guts" looks cool too! Heh!

Only one word of warning...take your time when handling the tape, as the edges are sharp and WILL give you a nasty paper-cut if you aren't careful! :)

Nice and easy to use

This product attaches easily and firmly to both painted (lacquered) areas and bare wood. It's also easy to make it follow irregular shapes without too much effort. It also stretches enough to reduce creasing to a minimum.

Much better than paint.

Provides better shielding and adhesion compared to paint. A little harder to work with, and there tends to be a lot of wastage, but the results are worth it.

Very nice

Beautiful stuff. The paper backing( I used the 2") allows it to be cut to any size or shape. Enough for many guitars. I wish I could wallpaper my shop with it and connect it to a cold water pipe and make a true "Faraday Cage"!

It's the best

This is the best shielding tape hands down. The conductive backing is extremely helpful, eliminating the need to solder every joint for continuity.

I've used this stuff for shielding guitar cavities, pickups coils, and back panels of amps. Works great!
