Conductive Copper Tape

About This Item

Get rid of buzz and interference in your guitar.
Shield pickups and control cavities with this self-adhesive copper tape.

180" rolls for shielding pickups and control cavities to reduce hum, noise and radio interference. The self-adhesive backing is also conductive, so overlapped seams are electrically continuous. Wrap this tape around pickup coils for additional shielding.

Sold individually or SAVE when you buy the set of all three widths.

Conductive Copper Tape surface accepts solder.

good shielding job without spraying

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I've been modifying guitar's and bass's electronics for 5 years and this tape helps to do the shielding job without spraying on any imaginable guitar. It's inexpensive and reliable. But keep your fingers protected because it has really sharp edges.

first time shielding a guitar. this was easy and convenient. it was nice to not have to solder each piece of tape together. just make sure there is a bit of overlap between each piece..checks out great with no resistance.

In the old days I used to coat the electronics cavities in my basses with Nickel Print. As that has become quite costly and harder to locate, I turned to this tape. I should have done this years ago. This tape is very easy to cut into the proper shapes, and stays put after you've placed it. Needless to say, the protective qualities are why I use it. No more interference from outside sources. Please keep this in stock, I am certain to need more.

The tape worked perfectly. The adhesion seems to be more reliable than I thought it was going to be. I'll use it again. However, I might use spray in tighter spots. Great product.

Shielding single coil guitars

I recently used Stew Mac's copper tape to shield a 1958 Strat and a Tele clone that I built. The results were almost unbelievable. I used the 2" and 3/4" tape. While dealing with the tape was a bit infuriating at first (the adhesive is VERY aggressive) I got used to it and the job went faster after the first couple cavities were done.


Take your time, make sure you are marking asymmetric shapes from the correct side of the tape (don't ask...) and it will work out fine. Use star grounding and solder the overlaps between tape sections. You will be amazed at the results. The Tele that I made has drilled channels rather than routes between the cavities. I used brass tubing through the drill channels and soldered the copper tape to the tubing for continuous shielding.



For any of the "Vintage" mavens shocked at doing anything but drooling on '58 Strats, this is an instrument that was on the road in the '70s with Stevie Wonder, the Ojays and other groups. It has an anatomically correct naked woman in pearl on the fretboard, Corvette metallic blue paint with stars, moons, and another naked lady on the body. Thus, no vintage hangups... The owner thinks of it as a tool. But now the engineers don't say " Hey what's that buzzin' out there? Can you stop that buzzin'??

Since covering the entire cavity and underside of the the pickguard of my strat (single coil pickups) there has been a dramatic improvement in the susceptibility of the RF and 60Hz hum. Do it! Buy the 2" and simply use scissors to cut to fit. Make sure it connects to ground at some point.
