Orange Multi-Purpose Tape

About This Item

Super versatile tape for any job in your shop
High-tack adhesive and tough crepe backing make our Orange Multi-Purpose Tape ready to tackle any project you have. From fretwork, masking finishes, binding, clamping, and more, you'll constantly find more uses for this fantastic tape.

It's got everything you need in a high-quality shop tape:

  • Tough but flexible paper backing
  • Thin adhesive that resists creeping under pressure
  • Strong tack that doesn't leave a residue

Our favorite tape for fretwork
The tough backing is strong enough to withstand the filing, buffing, and polishing involved in most fret jobs and fret level/dress work. And the skinny widths fit perfectly between the high frets so you can put your scissors down and get to work. Mask off a fretboard in record time!

But—this tape can do so much more! This is an excellent tape for masking a finish when doing touchups and refinish work. We also use it for clamping, protecting a finish during bridge and fingerboard removal, we find new uses every day.

Not sure which tape you need?
The stretchiness of this tape is great for getting into tight spots and getting extra pressure. The lower tack also makes it safer for finishes and easier to remove (but you should never leave any tape on a guitar finish for an extended length of time). It's also great for masking when finishing too.

When using wood binding, the Brown Binding Tape is the right choice for the extra tack and pull you need to hold the rigid wood binding in place. If you are using celluloid or plastic bindings, the Orange Multi-Purpose Tape is the perfect tape to hold the flexible binding strips in place.

Get all the tapes and our StewMac Guitar Shop Tape Deck to work like a professional now!

Pro Tip! The strong adhesive of our Orange Multi-Purpose Tape is good for applying pressure, but be cautious about using tape on soft top woods like spruce. With soft woods, first stick our binding tape to a cotton t-shirt to give it less tack before applying it.

When binding a guitar, when the glue is dry, remove the tape slowly and gently—pull at a 45 degree angle to the grain and lightly rub it with your index finger. Warming the tape with a blow dryer or softening the adhesive with naptha will also help it lift away easily without pulling up wood fibers. Not recommended for use on vintage or delicate finishes.

Damages finishes of guitars

By

Verified Buyer


Unfortunately I found out too late about the downside of this tape. I found the hint in one of the instruction videos much later after purchase and application. That's why I now know, that it wasn't my fault that caused the damage.
The tape destroyed an entire finish of a custom color bound Fender body. I was customizing the pickup cavities for deeper cutouts. For protection I used this tape for masking. After removing of the tape, the lacquer had shrunk (underneath the spots where the tape was used) and looked similar to the skin of an orange. At one spot, the finish even peeled off. Total disaster. Don't know why StewMac switched from the brown tape to this one.
In the meantime the brown tape is back in the program. I wish this information was available when I purchased the yellow one. I write this message, because I don't see any comments about this problem.
Best. Phil

I do other things besides instrument repairs, namely refinishing of watch cases and other things, this is so nice to have the different widths, the blade replacement option should I need later is good too, I think this will last me a lifetime....everything I have ever ordered from StewMac was delivered fast with no issues, thanks again StewMac-B.

Perfect for bindings

By

Verified Buyer


I like to cover my bindings before filling pores prior to finishing. The thin 1/4" tape is absolutley perfect for that job as well as covering the inlay strip between the halves on the back. Nice job on the dispenser as well. Great idea - thank you.

I feel silly for not buying this sooner

By

Verified Buyer


This truly is a great productivity tool if you think about how time consuming masking a fretboard can be compared to the other jobs that require the masking. One handed operation and three ready-to-grab widths of tape make a slow part of the work go much, much faster.

Un distributeur parfaitement efficace pour l’atelier. Vous pouvez prendre aisément d’une main un morceau de ruban bien coupé. Indispensable pour le binding.

Procrastination

By

Verified Buyer


Okay, I procrastinate. I've want to make a tape dispenser for a long time, but never got around to doing so. When this was on sale with the dispenser, I decided to purchase the deal. The tape is great, but the dispenser is wonderful. It stays put when pulling on the tape. Now I have the tape I need right in front of me.
