Default Acoustic Foam Tape

Hello,
I'm restoring an old Baldwin Spring Reverb unit, and there is an open-cell foam tape on the back of the circuit boards, about 3mm thick. Where can I buy a modern replacement for that?

Thanks,
- Circuitsoft

One of these should work.

Those all look like closed-cell foam. This isn't for attaching things, but for damping any sound waves that do wind up in the air inside the box.

This isn't my area of expertise, but what about this: Parts Express Speaker Gasketing Tape 1/8" x 1/2" x 50 ft. Roll
