For most instruments the Mad Hatter Solderless Tone Shaping System is a major upgrade to many instruments, especially those valued under $500.
Many of those instruments lack proper shielding and in some circumstances no shielding at all. This is noticeable in the amount of ground hum.
You may notice this hum when your hands are off your instrument. The hum then goes away once you touch the strings. Repeated touching will sometimes create pops.
In most cases this can be corrected with proper shielding. With the Mad Hatter Guitar Product Shield Tape you can greatly minimize this hum. Watch the following video for installation instructions and how this small investment can greatly reduce that annoying hum.
