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.

Great stuff right here!!

Super easy to use and for the price, you can't go wrong. I never fully shielded a guitar before so I did the control box on the back first. My guitar is a rear rout model so I had to be sure I did a neat job on the front. Once I got started the rest was easy and it looks excellent and my hum is gone!! 150% Recommend this Copper Tape!!

Magical tape.

I bought the 2" roll and shielded 2 strats with some leftover. The difference in noise levels is dramatic.
Pretty easy to use, but tape your fingers to avoid cutting them up when pressing into nooks and crannies.. This stuff is sharp.

1/4" tape

By
(Customer's Reviews)


In my pickguardless superstrat, I found it usefull to line one strip through the wire channel in the body twist the single coil neck pickup leads then wrap them in the copper tape. I checked continuity between cavities. I repaired the gaps in the previous foil job making sure I had a firm electrical connection under the pots and switches.

Having a lot of unwanted noise?

This conductive copper tape is amazing if done correctly. Three different widths to fit your guitars' crevices. I definitely recommend this if you want to keep your guitar quiet.

Fairly easy to work with but...

for my inexpensive jobs it's paint from now on. If you're working on a top notch electric, go for it but it is a bit of a challenge until you get the hang of it.

I purchased 2 inch copper tape and shielded 1968 SG with P90 pups . I soldered all tape work with ease . Results - no hum , axe is so quiet that I have already other people asking me to do same magic ;) . Way better than conductive paint ( considering very old guitars where shielding may be removed preserve originality of it )
