Hum? I don't think so.

Great product and easy to use. I shield every guitar and bass I get now. Worth every penny.

Copper tape

My Highway One Strat was a very good hummer until I used this copper tape. It still has a little hum but not so bad, 70% quieter I'd say. I do need to get a better inst. cable, but do not waste any more time. Buy it, it works and is easy to use. You will need to solder for best results. It does not take much heat for a good joint. I am glad I tried this stuff.

Great stuff right here!!

Super easy to use and for the price, you can't go wrong. I never fully shielded a guitar before so I did the control box on the back first. My guitar is a rear rout model so I had to be sure I did a neat job on the front. Once I got started the rest was easy and it looks excellent and my hum is gone!! 150% Recommend this Copper Tape!!

Hi Quality

It's worth it to pay for high quality tape like this and do the job right.

Copper grounded/shield tape

I bought the 3-roll set. Easy to apply, cuts with scissors. I applied to every cavity on a Mustang and Strat. It did make a difference. I'm very satisfied, it's nice to be able to do this type of mod on your own.

Great stuff - easy to work with and effective!

Before shielding the background interference getting to my strat was louder than the 60 cycle hum - so much so that pos 2 & 4 (with a RWRP middle pup) were as noisy as pos 1,3,5. After shielding (and no rewiring/touch up of the solder) it is very quiet. 1,3,5 have a slight bit of hum but pos 2 & 4 are noise free.

Nothing compares to this!

This is thick, strong and easy to use without having to solder all the joins. A great look and a real time saver. Quality stuff from Stewmac. I won't use anything else ever again!

Magical tape.

I bought the 2" roll and shielded 2 strats with some leftover. The difference in noise levels is dramatic.
Pretty easy to use, but tape your fingers to avoid cutting them up when pressing into nooks and crannies.. This stuff is sharp.
