Pickup Coil Tape

About This Item

Build or repair pickups with these authentic '50s parts! Pickup Coil Tape is used to wrap and protect humbucker and single-coil pickups.

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.

Not just tape

By

Verified Buyer


While there's not a whole lot to say about tape, this stuff was a surprise to me. It holds strong yet can be very easily removed and reused without losing it's stickiness. I'm not sure how they do it but it's pretty amazing. It's as easy to use as painter's tape but holds much stronger, and doesn't loose its stick after first use. (it's good for several removals/reuses in my experience).
One tip I discovered, after you're all done and everything is where you want it (i.e., you're not going to remove it and do more work - you're ready to button things back up and get back to playing) gently heat it with a hair dryer or direct sun. After it cools, it's even stronger. Very impressive tape for wire dressing and keeping things in place.

great for uncovered tele neck pickups.

Just what I needed to remove the cover of a tele neck pickup - I never liked them. It protects the coil windings just fine.

I was installing new vintage style pickups into my guitar and when I adjusted height the tape got damaged. It was really noticeable! This tape was an exact replacement for the original and now my guitar looks perfect!

High Quality Pickup Coil Tape!

I have been using this on my builds for years, but only recently started buying from StewMac as the Free Shipping makes it much more convenient to One-Stop-Shop. I add this in conjunction with copper shielding tape (StewMac) and voila...NO MORE SIXTY-CYCLE HUM!

Exactly like the original

By

This tape was the perfect replacement for my humbucker pickups after replacing the magnet. The tape that came off was old and contorted. I also accidentally tore part of it. The new tape worked well and looks exactly like the original tape that was on the pickup.
