Copper Tapes

This tape could not be easier to use. I shield ALL of my builds and personal guitars too, stretching it over the cavities and tracing with my finger before cutting the shape and applying. Silent electronics, especially from single coils, is a must, and this tape will help get you there every time.

Conductive Copper Tape

Greatly reduces hum. Instead of full cavity taping i suggest buying narrowest tape and making grid, you will save some money and tape with the same result.

Makes shielding a cinch

Copper shielding looks great,even if no one sees it after the guitar is together. This kit by stewmac makes shielding a breeze, and the tape goes a long way.

Good value, works perfectly

Highly recommended. This kit transformed my Strat into a silent, hum-free wonder. Now I can use all of the tones that the guitar has to offer without 60 cycle hum or other interference. Even after shielding a bathtub-rout Strat (including the spring cavity), there's enough tape left for at least one more guitar.

good value

Easy to apply (yes, sticks to your fingers). Really eliminates most/all the hum coming from a single coil pickup. Be prepared that the 3/4" roll will provide enough coverage to do a tele and have a tiny bit left over

Gets the job done

This stuff is perfect for what it is designed to do, namely, shield guitar cavities from RFI. Easy to apply after you get the hang of separating it from it's backing. I like it because it has conductive adhesive which makes the job easy to do with no soldering. I used it to shield my 1988 Gibson/Epiphone Nouveau Spotlight which I recently repaired and modified to make it a player again. I even covered the EMG Select pups with the stuff. It looks awesome and couldn't get much quieter. Then I bought another roll to shield my new SX Furrian that I'm turning into the guitar that I've always wanted in a Telecaster Style. SWEET!

Works great and fairly easy to install

Was surprised how easy this was to use. Completely shielded my new bass (based on Precision) in about 30 minutes. The bass is absolutely noise free..

Works Great!

This copper tape is easy to apply, conducts well, and looks great. The 3/4" is the most useful for me.
