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.

Handy to have all three widths available in one stand. The orange tape is good quality- good stick but not too sticky. The combination was not expensive and a big help for protecting wood while doing fret work. I'd buy this again!

Perfect Tool for the job

This is a great tool. Three widths of tape, heavy base that doesn't move, sharp teeth to cut tape clean and an easy rolling dispenser. Even as an impulse buy you'll be glad you spent the money for a long time coming.

Tape Dispenser

By

Verified Buyer


It's a tape dispenser, right? I know, but it is very well constructed and thought out. Wouldn't normally review a tape dispenser but this may be the thing I like most from my recent list of purchased items. It's a bit pricey but I think it's worth every penny. I have two sizes of tape on the first two reels and sandpaper on the third. What a wonderful idea!

Very handy item.

I'm just using the tape to polish the frets on my guitars. It enables me to do a much more thorough job. It sticks to the fretboard nicely, but peels off very easily. Very happy. Thank you for a very good product.

Tape Deck!! Best deal on Stewmac!!

Verified Buyer


I never thought something under $50 could make my life so much easier in my shop. This dispenser is great. I double the small rolls on one of the three independent spools so I can have the three sizes of orange tape and one regular sized roll of brown binding tape. A small modification to allow the 4 rolls to spin independently would make this even better. I use the orange tape for fretwork and the brown for binding. Highly recommended.
