For indoors, good ol' masking tape, 3/4 inch.  Just make sure you remove it after the gig.  Outdoors, white gaff tape.

a)  What's the difference in indoor/outdoor?   Isn't masking tape just as icky either place?

b)  You have a real name?

I believe Cosmo is "grandfathered in" on the name thing, much like Abdul-eq.  It seems to be an "inside" thang.

White gaff is my first choice and if its not available then I'll grab whatever I can like artist or electrical tape, anything but masking tape.

However, if your a backline tech named Gary out on tour with a B level act, you don't use any stinkin board tape! You just write on my keyboard mixer with a Sharpy and then act like you didn't do it. >:(

Around these parts, it gets pretty hot in the summer (the only time I do outdoor gigs) so masking tape will leave a mess if used outdoors.  Indoors is almost always air conditioned, so no problem.  Also our humidity averages 15 or 20 percent, so we don't sweat as much, just dry out.

And as the moderators know, Cosmo is my full legal name.  No grandfathering necessary, although I am old enough...

Artist's tape.

A roll from the art store for $4 or so has lasted a year. Of course, you need to have an art store nearby.

Try using some high concentration isopropyl alcohol. It'll usually get it mostly off.

Same here. Places using swamp coolers can get humidity up into the 30s indoors if they don't leave a window open.
