I had great luck using Everclear. Depending on which state you live in, you
may not be able to get it. Used sparingly, it's never damaged acetate tape,
or polyester tape for that matter. Dries quickly. And the bottle looks
pretty cool in your studio too.

possibly off-the-shelf adhesive tape was used and trimmed for width. This
has resulted in some sticky goo adhering to the adjacent layers and the tape
drags on playback, even though I have redone the splice with proper splicing
tape. Can anyone advise on how to clean off the sticky residue?
