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.

'A-List' Item!

By

Verified Buyer


Sometimes you purchase one of those items that leaves you asking, 'Why didn't I purchase this sooner?!' I bought dispenser with the 3-pack of orange tape and there's enough room to slide a half inch role of standard white masking tape on there as well.

Well-weighted and sturdy with a razor sharp cutter, this lends itself to a one-hand operation and just expedites work-flow, incredibly. Prior to this, I'd cut lengths of tape and stick them to the edge of my bench for say, a binding job.... not anymore! It's usually the simplest tools that make the biggest difference... this one is an instant winner.

Great for binding

Very strong tape. Much stronger than painters tape. Excellent on binding. Had to use a heat gun to remove it, to save the finish on an old guitar.

Great tape

I like having it around , very good. Works great on many things. It is a time saver when taping off fingerboards up past 12th - 15th frets. Buy it on sale, that helps.

Tape Deck Review

By

Verified Buyer


This tape deck is a dream. I have used hand-held tape rolls in the past. Saw this and thought would give it a try. Like I said, it is a dream. The body is weighted so it holds the deck in place while tape is withdrawn. So much easier than a roll. And, with 3 different widths of tape, you can get just what you need in length, and width. I have had this deck less than a week, and have been using it already..

Wow...This Beats the Pants Off of Painter's Tape

By

Verified Buyer


I've been using a combination of masking and painter's tape for all of my wood projects. This is like a mix between masking and electrical tape. I love the tensile strength of this tape. It is perfect for so many applications. Today I used it on the end of a pair of needle nose pliers to avoid scratching a guitar body. Yesterday, I used it to prevent damaging the threaded post of a stop-tail piece that had become jammed and my "BIG OL" screwdriver was MIA. Love it.

great stuff- well worth it

By

Verified Buyer


I've been trying to use painters tape, cloth strips, etc for years. This stuff holds and is strong. I made up some 3-ply laminated top and side bindings with ABS, which can be pretty stiff, and this held really well during gluing. Well worth it!
