Does what it's supposed to. Don't just stop at putting copper under your overpriced basswood atrocity from Ibanez..no .. actually put it inside the guitars cavity everywhere. Ok done that? run a wire cavity to cavity and attach it to ground on the volume pot. In each cavity there should be a solder so you "activate" the cavities hum cancelling. Cheap chinese electronics and import pickups will be crystal clear. Also be sure to use copper tape under pickup bases for single coils. Humbuckers it's redundant.

the kid who gave a 1 star did it wrong. I know a ton of guitar companies that swear by this and after doing it myself I am a fan too. The photo attached is before I ran the wire through the cavity. Without the wire it's totally useless to do this unless you like making stuff shiny.

I'm not sure if I did something wrong here. I put the tape under my pickguard and shielded all my pickups and pots with 1 layer of this tape and when I turned my amp back on I saw no difference there was still that stupid hum. Maybe if I added more layers it might do the trick but I would not recommend this unless you buy a whole sh** load to put in. It's a great idea but just doesn't work like people say it does.

The Good Stuff Man

Comments about DiMarzio Copper Shielding Tape:

This is the good thick stuff! I recently purchased some copper tape from amazon for a shielding project and it was soooooooooo thin that alot of what I tried to use got wasted when I cut a piece and peeled the back and it bunched up like scotch tape! This Dimarzio branded tape from Musician's Friend is the good thick stuff like what you get from good suppliers such as StewMac. Be careful when you shield a cavity though because you will get small little razor cuts on your fingers from the edges of this stuff. My fingers are pretty rough & tough and I still get wee little paper-cut like slices on my fingertips but they generally aren't bad cuts, just annoying. Be aware and don't run your finger straight down the edge of this tape because this is the thick "metal type" tape that you want for a great shielding job!

          Comments about DiMarzio Copper Shielding Tape:

          This was my first attempt at making a Faraday cage to capture and ground out that awful hum that came with your single coil pickups. This product is made for the job. If you get another foil, make sure you have a conductive glue! Another copper foil tape may be ten time the amount you need and you'll spend much more money than you need to spend. Each package is just enough for one cutout or one pickguard. Don't waste any! Don't forget to run a grounding wire and you'll be pleased with the reduction/elimination of HUM.

              Comments about DiMarzio Copper Shielding Tape:

              Yes, it is worth it. Line the cavity if you can, but at least cover inside the plate, trim around, and poke the holes through and replace. Super easy. I got the idea because my Modulus bass came copper-lined inside. It makes the guitar quieter and improves sound quality. However, you can also use the snail-blocking copper tape from the nursery plant store.

                Comments about DiMarzio Copper Shielding Tape:

                Since it is self adhesive, it is very easy to use. Way easier than aluminum foil and glue. There is exactly enough for a 3 pickup Strat guitar, so plan ahead or you will run out. I would have liked to see maybe 5 more inches in the package. If your guitar has big pickup openings, you might possibly need two kits. I loved the sound of a Strat through my Marshall, but it was very sensitive to noise. This shielding kit made a huge difference.

                    Comments about DiMarzio Copper Shielding Tape:

                    I recently bought a used MIJ Tele that had excessive hum and a nasty crackle whenever you touched the pick guard. Disassembly revealed a lack of shielding, other than someone's attempt to shield the pickups with aluminum foil and what looked like chewing gum holding it in place! I pried all this out, covered the back of the pick guard with this copper tape, and lined all the pickup cavities as well, being careful to insure that the cavities were connected with each other, and with the bridge and the switchplate. Result: No more hum and no more crackle.

                    This tape goes on easy, and adheres well. The important thing is to make sure all the surfaces you want to stick it to are clean and dry. A good wipedown with alcohol will insure that there's no oil or grease left on the surface. Press the tape in, making sure you overlap adjacent strips to insure electrical contact, and burnish it with a rounded piece of wood or some other soft material to make sure it is securely in contact with the surface you applied it to.

                      Bottom line it works. Pretty easy to use. I wish the adhesive was conductive but its easy enough to solder the pieces together. One pack isn't enough to get a good covering. I would get 2 maybe 3 if you've got a particularly large area your covering.
