Best mud to me for taping is taping mud. But I'll use AP - All Purpose - as well, especially if there isn't a lot to do.What is the best mud to use in a banjo taping tool and also how thick or thin should it be. Thanks in advance for any help or replies.
use hotmud on the flats and A/P in the corners and the thinner it is the easier it is. :yes::thumbup: I guess it's just a matter of time Kiwiman till they catch on....It's sad..I don't know if there is a "best mud" for the banjo, it's just a matter of getting the consistency right, I use hotmud on the flats and A/P in the corners and the thinner it is the easier it is.
Looks about right for the majority of banjo taping I do.
That's a point I missed - we use the lightweight taping and AP as well. Works well for us.I prefer the lite weight taping blend. The lighter the better when it comes to stringin tape. The l/w seems to not leak as bas either, the heavy , runny all purpose leaks easier. If I cant get lite taping :blink: Ill use l/w AP and add glue just to keep it light. 250's for tape also..
