5951 Black paper "flat-back" tape, 1/4" wide x 65-feet long.
Used to wrap humbucker bobbins after winding. Also used to cover solder joints of lead wires.

5952 Black cloth tape, 3/8" wide x 65-feet long.
Ideal for wrapping a humbucker after it's been assembled to protect the bobbins. Can also be used with single-coil pickups to protect the windings however, this is not "vintage".

Example: Use conductive foil wrapped around the windings to reduce 60-cycle hum. Wrap the coil with tape, then wrap the #0036 1/4" Conductive Copper Tape over the tape and connect to ground.

Wonderful for new work

I really like how there is some "working time" in the adhesive, so you can adjust the wrap on days where you may have had too much coffee. This stuff is made of a nice fabric ribbon, so it molds to shape around bobbin flanges and nicely covers the exit wire. After adjusting and press-fitting the tape, it stays put with little to no creep back to original shape. That's great! After sitting for a little while, you can be sure it is going to stay there. I will be interested in seeing how well it can be removed after a couple year's of use in the instrument.

good stuff

I have used string, painters tape cloth surgical tape, but nothing works as well or looks as professional as Stew-Mac's Pickup Coil Tape. It is easy to work with, protects the coil and just plain looks great on a finished pickup. I prefer the black cloth. My pickups are not finished without it. I also pot my pickups with the tape on the pickup, no problems. Thanks Stew-Mac, all your products are top shelf.

I like it!

I recommend taping after potting since the tape might want to come off during the potting process. The 3/8" is better tape for me because I can cut or rip it down to size.
