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.

Love this stuff

I used the 1/4" tape after I turned my 2 conductor Seymour Duncan 59n humbucker into a 4 conductor. Looks like the factory tape.

This tape is of good quality. It cuts easily, and leaves your pickup looking well put together.

Perfect Replacement

Both the paper and cloth tape are a perfect replacement for original tapes found on Gibson factory pickups or others such as Dimarzio. Good adhesive quality and correct appearance make these highly recommended. A+ products

The right stuff

This is great for replacing tape that is peeling-off on a pickup, or replacing after opening-up a pickup to fix/modify something.

Makes a pickup look good-as-new

nice tape

I've used both the paper tape and the cloth tape in the pickups I've wound. The tape looks good and keeps the coils neatly protected. I've found especially the strong cloth tape to meet my needs. Bigger rolls and some other colour options would be nice.
