What kind of multimeter do I use and what setting for shield

Postby (lumgimfong) » Wed Feb 15, 2017 1:18 am

What kind of multimeter do I use and what setting do I use on it for copper tape shielding conductivity test?

Or is it OK to just copper shield my 4003 bass and not test?

A simple VOM (Volt Ohm Meter) will work for checking resistance between components (I assume that you would be soldering a lead between the shield and the ground on the potentiometers). For resistance measurements like that, the lowest ohm range would typically be used because the resistance between common grounds should be close to zero.
