    Staring a bass project and was wondering which one (shielding paint or shielding tape) would be better, or if there is any difference other than the price.

    Thanks

    From an electrical standpoint - tape is much better. Does it matter for a bass - depends on the environment. Paint is probably good enough for most situations but I always use foil.
