EZ to make good solder joints.

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I was able to make good sooder joints with it.

Because it is a skinny strip of solder wound inside a tube, it was kind of a PITA to use.

It is good solder and works well, but for ease of use I'm going back to fatter strips on a roll next time.

Perfect for guitar wiring

This is a great solution for your guitar wiring needs. Small enough to heat up quickly, build solder pools and end up with nice shiny joints. This product has worked well for me.

Great Solder

By

Small diameter melts easily. Great for working with smaller parts and re-flowing old joints.
Leaves clean, shiny, smooth connections when used properly.
It is a bit messy but not excessively. Simple cleanup makes everything like new.

This is what you want.

I understand wanting to make good choices for the environment, but having done the silver solder thing, its a real pain getting that stuff to melt and stick to the backs of pots, even using all the tricks. And...there doesn't seem to be really any difference in tone. Honestly, unless you are worried that your guitar is going to someday wind up in a landfill, I wouldn't worry about the lead in this stuff. Hands down, this is what you want for a nice easy soldering job, every single time.
