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 stuff!

I've used Stewmac's copper tape for many years now, always with great results. It's a great money maker for my shop, and I've had many a happy customer when their previously noisy guitar ended up quieter than a tomb.
Tech tip: you MUST completely enclose all cavities, meaning that there has to be a "lip" over the edge of the cavities to mate with the under-the-pickguard shielding. For very troublesome guitars, it may be necessary to shield the trem cavity/cover as well.
If planned carefully, the shielding acts as a ground buss, allowing most of the stock ground wires to be discarded (e.g.: Strat pot-to-pot ground wires are no longer needed-the pickguard shielding grounds them instead). Any wire can act as an RF antenna, so the less length of wire under the hood, the better.
My only complaint (Are you listening guys? Another reviewer mentioned this as well.) is that the thickness of the tape and the backing has gotten much flimsier recently.

I used the 3/4" tape in a 69 Tele along with the pickguard shielding foil and it works great.

What can I say but I hope Stew-Mac
never changes. One of the most customer supportive companies that I've ever had the pleasure to deal with, and for 30 years. You've fueled my builds, repairs, and mods. Always giving utmost satisfaction. Recently a tuner bushing broke on a set of Gotohs I had purchased from you. I was truly dumb for thinking that I was probably out of luck. I contacted customer service, and was politely told "no Problem". Two days later i had a new bushing in my mail-box. That's service, and that's Stewart-MacDonald. Larry boydston.

Works great, but recommend shielding paint for the actual cavity. I used it on the cavity cover. Beware - when you unroll it, it scrolls up real bad. Stick the tape on the cavity cover and apply rather than cutting the tape off and trying to apply it. I can hold my guitars up to a fluorescent light and get no noise at all (I actually tried this).

Using the copper tape is totally worth the finger abuse! If you have a noisy axe, give it a try.

Awesome Tape

I have a Peavey Grind BXP 4 that I am converting to a 5 string fretless with all new EMG electronics. I had to do a lot of carving in the electronics cavity which removed all the æiron paintÆ. After a lot of research I ordered this tape: and I am so very glad that I did. It was easily cut to fit and my electronics cavity looks like it is lined in GoldàExcellent product. The only change I will make is that when this is gone IÆll order + and 2 inch rolls.
