EdG, 28.06.2013
After ordering a supply of Stairville Stage Tape 400BK some time ago (I thought that was a real bargain, but it got pretty quickly disappointed: the tape does not do what it promises!), And this supply (finally!) Is used up I ordered four different tapes this time. Those were:
- The Stairville 690 BK for 7.90 EUR / piece, with the hope that the more expensive tape of this brand also makes more
- the Gerband fabric tape 250 in black also for 7,90EUR each
- the Tesa 4613 SW for 4,90EUR / piece and
- the Tesa 4688 SW for 5,55EUR / piece, the only one that only has a length of 25 meters instead of the other ones of 50 meters - so if you compare the price with the others, you pay here for 50m the most

When unpacking the Stairville was negative: the adhesive apparently runs out of the tape on the side, and glued to the plastic bag, in which the tape was packed - the removal of this was comparatively real extremely heavy. Although the two tesa also showed that the tape is glued to the packaging to some extent - but here only in a thin strip, it acts as if this is actually intended - it did not bother.
Connecting it smelled first in the whole room after chemistry. In comparison, however, there was also a difference here: the Gerband tape and the Tesa 4688 you hardly smell, if you do not stick it to your nose. It was different with the Tesa 4613 and the Stairville band: both smelled noticeably stronger.
However, the Stairville band was also more unpleasant here. I guess that this is related to the glue that runs out at the side: If you tap the tape on the side, the hand naturally sticks everywhere a little - but here also much stronger with the two who have smelled strongly, am strongest in the Stairville band.
For application testing, a short strip of tape was torn off and a weight of tape attached to the bottom of a stone windowsill - glued directly over the heater. It started with the Tesa 4613, which promptly surprised: After about five minutes, the weight slammed down. Then it was the turn of the Stairville tape, which brought a similar result - but only after a minute. The test I did a week ago - the Tesa 4688 and the Gerband tape with weight, I have lost today, they still hung as in the first second. Although there was no real difference, the Tesa 4688 made a more stable impression - purely subjective. Residues - after all, the tape hung directly above the heater - showed up in the two tapes, on which the heat has acted longer, because they are not directly demolished. In both cases, these were only minimal and could be easily removed with a little hot water. I also used the tapes alternately on stage - but I only trusted the Stairville and Tesa 4613 during the dress rehearsal, they were just too unreliable in the sticky behavior. The other two - the Tesa 4688 and the Gerband - stuck reliably until I had replaced them, au
Here, the Tesa 4688 seemed a bit more stable.
Overall, I have to say: Of the two Stairville tapes - the Stage Tape 400BK and 690BK - I can only advise against. Although the 400BK lures with a cheap price, but brings even cheaper quality - absolutely unsuitable for those who want to stick the tape not only for decoration on the wall. The 690BK glues only slightly better than the 400BK and costs with 7,90EUR exactly as much as the much more reliable Gerband tape - this is in the price-performance ratio clearly recommended. Although the Tesa 4688 looked a bit more stable in subjective perception, this minimal difference in this case justifies the higher price (take into account the different lengths of both bands). The Tesa 4613 is better in adhesive behavior than the 400BK and 690BK and is therefore suitable for anyone who does not have too great demands on their armored tape: For example, it is suitable for masking cables to the ground.

Conclusion: Who really wants to be sure that he has the right tape and the additional costs are not afraid to use the Tesa 4688th Who looks for nearly the same performance and a particularly good price-performance ratio, which takes instead the Gerband and who with his tape only cable Sticking to the floor or similar to perform unattractive tasks, takes the Tesa 4613. The two Stairville tapes, however, are not rudimentary for the stage everyday - why Thomann's quality assurance does not throw this out of the assortment or prompt the manufacturer to repair, I can not understand.
