One of the things that surprised me when I looked at our Google search results was how often someone searched for “gaffa tape”.
We’ve been selling gaffers tape for almost 30 years, and I have been using it my entire professional life. Thousands of shows with hundreds of different techs, and I don’t think that I have ever heard anyone use the term “gaffa”.
No idea if this is a regional thing, something that is specific to one subset of the production industry or just the way some people say gaffer, but with a soft (very soft?) “r”.
Gaffa, gaff, gaffer or gaffer. If it’s tape, we’ve got it, no matter how you say it.
