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.

Love this tape!

By

Verified Buyer


Really like this tape. Have used it on spruce and canadian cypress tops for binding and have not had any issue with it pulling fibres. Have also used it to mask fingerboards. No problem there.
I even like the orange. Helps me find the damn stuff on my cluttered bench top! Must work and that last aspect I will admit.

I bought these different sizes in a 3 pack to cover the various widths that the frets are.

Disappointed with product

By

Verified Buyer


This tape lifted wood fibers from my top even though I knew to pull it off against the grain. In fact I tried every way I could to minimize the lifting - the fibers pulled off. I have never had this happen with blue tape.

Response from StewMac


Hi Wayne,

We're sorry our Binding Tape did not work for you as you expected. We stand behind our return policy -- if you are not satisfied with a product, you may return it anytime for a refund or exchange. Please call us at 1-800-848-2273. We look forward to helping you with this.

If you ever encounter this issue again in the future, we recommend gently heating the tape with a desk lamp or heat gun to reactivate the adhesive. This should make removing the tape go much more smoothly. Any remaining adhesive can then be cleaned up using a little naphtha.

Too porous and not as rigid. very disappointed. I wish I had been notified why you changed, rather than thinking you upgraded.

I tend to be a little lazy and this beat cutting tape to size.
