Hi Steve,

Apart from price, it’s the adhesive. Duct tape leaves adhesive on
whatever it was attached to, which then attracts dirt, sticks to your
hands etc….

Proper gaffer tape is a much finer cloth weave, and leaves very little
residue behind.

In answer to the original question (removing the glue), I use Servisol
Foam Cleanser 30 – this stuff is actually meant for use on Vinyl.
Spray it on and leave it for about 15 seconds, then wipe off with an
old T-Shirt, or whatever.

This works well at getting stains out of Tolex like beer, coffee,
ingrained cigarette ash and all the other stuff that gigging amps pick
up. Black Tolex actually comes up very black, just like new.

Try and keep it away from “black on aluminium” panels like Fender,
Music Man etc. front panels. If areas are worn, like round the volume
control, this stuff will make them worse….

HTH,
Duncan

Buy the Book!

I cleaned up my tab for Sonny Boy's Help Me and made it into a short book. There's a Kindle version for 99 cents, and if you buy the paperback you get the Kindle free.

Playing "Help-Me" In the Style of Sonny Boy Williamson II: A step by step, note for note analysis of some of Sonny Boy's Signature Riffs

I also write Science Fiction, so you can sample some of my best stories. Also available in Kindle format.

I began collecting data about the microphones used by blue harp players before there was an internet. I began organizing it into JT30.com in the late 1990s. I accumulated more stuff than I remember. This is some of it.
