I bought this tape to get rid of a noise that I was getting when I installed Vintage 1962 Precision Bass Pickups. I had already changed the pots and upgraded the wiring too and that did not help. I read on the internet that it was a shielding issue if your guitar makes noise when you take your fingers off the strings. That was what I was getting so I decided to shield the pickup cavity,the pots and control cavity and the pickup guard. I did this soldered a wire to the shielding and ground. Worked like a charm the guitar is totally silent now no noise with the volume up or hands on or off the strings. Sounds so much better great inexpensive fix all smiles now.

Good, but not best

By Rocky Starland

from Sout Haven, MI

Comments about DiMarzio Copper Shielding Tape:

The whole purpose was like everyone else, to rid a guitar, in this case a Fender bass, of unwanted hum. I did the research on the 'net, watched several YouTube videos, and purchased this product while at Guitar Center. To my surprise, on the inside of the package, an Important Note was there. Basically, to ensure "true" shielding, any over lapping pieces should be soldered. Other products I viewed indicated that the adhesive on the foil also was conductive and did not need soldering. But in the end it all worked out. Just some extra time to make sure all pieces were connected.

          Just got done installing in all the pick up and control cavities on my Tele. It works great!. Before sound had a very noticeable 60 cycle hum. After installing the copper shielding the noise is almost completely gone.

          Total Silence

          By KEVIN

          from Haysville, KS

          Comments about DiMarzio Copper Shielding Tape:

          I decided to try playing bass after playing guitar for years. Bought a used Squier P bass, and set it up, but it had that noise when you weren't touching the strings. Did lots of research and decided to try shielding it, This package was barely enough to shield the p bass. Worked beautifully. Amp all the way up and volume pot wide open and no noise at all. Some literature says the adhesive is conductive, but there is some disclaimer paperwork in the package that says you may have to solder the pieces together. I didn't have to, and checked each piece for continuity. It worked just great! After hearing the difference, I will be shielding my other guitars.

              Comments about DiMarzio Copper Shielding Tape:

              I was getting low hum when only using 1 pickup which is standard with two single coils. Turning up both pickups cancels that sound. However I was also getting the higher frequency static sound which goes away when I touch the metal guitar parts.

              I lined the pickup and control cavities. Overlapped the tape just a bit. Ran small ground wires in the existing holes to connect the newly shielded areas. Now the bass is almost silent in every pickup combination, whether or not I'm touching it.

              It only took two hours, and it's like getting a new bass.

                After reading reviews about how well this product works to shield guitar electronics, I tried it on my Rega PR3 turntable which has always had a humm problem. The humm has been greatly reduced at normal listening volumes with only 2 layers applied to the turntable plinth.

                      I have used this product on more than a few guitars. Properly installed, it helps the guitar stay quiet around different power equipment. It is always clean and does a good job. Some packages have had a less tacky adhesive than others. Maybe it has something to do with how long it was in the warehouse. A little contact cement is handy. Overall it is better quality than one other brand I have used. I will continue to use it every time I upgrade pickups.
