Low Tack Protective Tape

About This Item

Dan Erlewine's choice in low tack tape.
In his writings and Trade Secrets, Dan Erlewine often mentions "sign painter's tape" for protecting guitars while working. Here it is: the wide, low tack tape Dan uses in his shop.

Protect delicate finishes from fret filings and tools by masking your work area. Regular masking tape is a poor choice for this because its agressive stickiness can pull up pieces of vintage finish. Low tack adhesive makes Protective Tape a better choice.

Extra low tack, 3" width: Use the 3" (76.20mm) wide tape to mask large areas during fretwork, finishing or repairs. This is what we use on vintage guitars with worn, checked, or otherwise delicate finishes.

Low tack, 1" width: Choose the 1" (25.4mm) tape for masking fretboards or small areas during finish touchups. This tape has just a little more bite to stay put.

"I use a piece of wide tape for mixing grain fillers: do the messy mixing on the tape then throw it away when I'm done."—Dan Erlewine

Each roll is 100 yards (91.44 meters) long.
Extra-wide inner spool keeps the tape edges from touching your bench, so they won't pick up dirt and filings.

Get this tape!

This tape is awesome, just enough stick to stay in place but no residual glue. I used this in conjunction with the orange tape and it worked perfectly.

10/10 would buy again.

If you're going to work on a guitar, you'll be happy to have a roll of this low tack adhesive paper around to protect its finish and keep crud away from your electronics. Its wide size makes quick work of covering things up.

Enough  stickum to stick without being too sticky

By

Verified Buyer


Doesn't seem to leave a sticky residue. Could double as a gaffers tape. Regular masking tape can pull the dots right out of your fret board. Ask me I know. I don't think this tape will.

Until you've tried this tape you don't know what you are missing. The tape is beautiful to work with, expensive but well worth it because of the ease of use. Do you really want to pull the finish off of your customers prized instrument? If you don't you better use this tape because it is terrific !

Ideal tape for repair!

By

Verified Buyer


I tried various masking tapes, but none of them had such a low adhesion. Can be used with confidence even in delicate cracked paint. Easy to peel off or stick to protect large area. Please sell forever.
