Conductive Shielding Paint

About This Item

Reduces hum, noise and radio interference.
The fastest and easiest way to shield pickup and control cavities. Perfect for tight spots.

When connected to electrical ground, the shielded surfaces help reduce noise, hum and radio interference. It cleans up with water while still wet, and dries overnight.

Brush on two or more coats of this waterbase dark gray conductive paint for best results (let dry between coats). Conductive shielding paint is supplied in a 1/2-pint can, sufficient for shielding several electric guitars, and in a money-saving 1-pint can. We recommend our conductive tape for best results when shielding smooth plastic pickguards.

Conductive Paint not as good as copper tape

By
(Customer's Reviews)


Put 5 coats on my pickup and electronic cavities and the best I could do was 27 ohms....I the bought some copper tape and achieved .2 - .3 ohms....with target being under 1....so I am never going to use the paint again ...the numbers don't lie...it's over priced and marginal at best!

It works

It's not copper but as long as you are not creating ground loops with your wiring or carrying any current at all in the shield it works, and it's very quick and easy to apply - although the recommended three coats will take three days.

I used this in the body cavity of a 1989 Fender Tele, which was completely unshielded. Worked great! Make sure you use at least three coats, and give each coat a full 24 hours to cure. Be careful also about tight cavities where a hot wire might brush against the paint -- if necessary, bend a connection away from the cavity wall and/or use some electrical tape to maintain good separation.

This product works very well. You will need clear access to all cavities and wire routes. I used shielded cables when I could not get the product into wire channels and then grounded the shields to the cavity areas. This product and foil shielding on the underside of the pick guard made a badly humming bass 99% silent. Ventilation and a fan for fumes are required.

I love it!

I'm totally shielding all of the cavities in my custom build Strat. This is so easy to use. Just make sure you mask the area around your work thoroughly and keep a small bowl of water and dish soap close at hand. The paint tends to flick off the brush easily as you paint the sides of the cavities. I'm so glad I bought this. It beats the heck out of trying to even out shielding foil.

Used this for the cavity in conjunction with the self adhesive shielding kit for the pickguard of my PRS DC3 which was making a racket! worked great. it is messy and tends to get on things so be prepared with rags to wipe up any mistakes.

I'LL NEVER GO BACK TO SHIELDING TAPE!!!

I used this on an ash Tele body for a project I was building. I had used copper shielding tape on past projects and let me say, this just blows that tape away. I followed the instructions to the letter and this is absolutely the quietest guitar I've ever made. This stuff really does the trick. Now I'm thinking about going back and using it on some of my past projects. Great stuff! Buy it! You won't be disappointed!

Silence

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I put multiple coats of conductive paint and copper taped the pick-up and control cavity of my bass, it's near silent when it's not being played. The only thing my guitarist and I could hear was the near inaudible hum of the speaker being turned on, so all sound artifacts coming from the guitar are gone. It costs a fraction of what a noise reduction pedal does, and takes one more pedal off your board.

If it gets on the body of your guitar it comes off very easily with soap and a damp towel.

All of my instruments are getting this treatment.
