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.

My old Kramer had shielded wire is going to pick ups in order to sub some Fendor pick ups I had to shield the cavity i’e glad I got it now, if I want to put in some other pick up I can just drop them In , it took me about 2 1/2 hours to get the cavoty shielded I took my time and did it right

I swear by this stuff

It might cost a little more than some other options, but the time you'll save is well worth it. It's very forgiving and blends into itself easily and almost invisibly. The three different widths really help save some scissor time too.

Beware of "slug tape" at your local home and garden store. It's copper, but doesn't have conductive adhesive.

One bit of advice, be careful! It's really easy to get a "paper cut" on this stuff. I use the eraser end of a pencil to help flatten it, rather than risk my fingertips. Still, I somehow manage to slice myself just about every time I use the stuff.

My Strat hummed terribly in position's 2 thru 5. I lined the cavity and pick guard with StewMac copper shielding tape and now she's quite as a mouse. I was skeptical but now I'm a believer...it really works.

Well this copper shielding is easily the best I've tried. For the price you can't beat it. This tape sticks far better than cheaper versions sold by other guitar parts vendors. There is enough on one roll to easily do 3 or 4 guitars, possibly more, but I've done a strat and a tele so far and still have about half the roll left. This mod made the Texas Special single coils on my strat much quieter. You will still get some hum from single coils but if you're properly grounded everywhere this shielding in the body cavity of your guitar makes a big difference in the audible hum. Make sure all areas you want to apply this to are as clean as possible but it doesn't have to be perfect. Rock on!

P-bass cavities covered with this stuff; grounded by the
pots mounted on the copper tape covered plastic face plate.
No more random hiss and hum...

Excellent product, works as intended

Used this tape on a Stratocaster rebuild. Shielded the entire cavity and part of the pick guard. My only complaint is that there doesn't seem to be a lot of tape on the roll, and can probably only be used for one medium sized job. Other than that, great product, can't wait to hear the lack of hum.
