G7th Performance Capo (6-String) Reviews4.4/5.0 based on 15 customer reviews
The G7th Capo is quite literally one of the best I have ever used. The design of this is quite different in that it uses a clutch system with a spring rather than just a spring. The result is no re-tuning due to less pressure on the strings - no matter the size of the fret!
The design is amazing and innovative to say the least!

Most consistent capo I've ever used.Most consistent capo I've ever used. Never worry about a string that isn't dampened. Easy on off.

The Only CapoI've been playing guitar for over forty years and always have used a capo.My biggest gripe was that I was always tweaking the tuning to make up for capo's tension.And that all capos were downright ugly,cumbersome and sometimes got in the way of my fingering.I'm happy to say those days are gone.The G7th Performance Capo is a blessing.The tension is totally ajustable and mirrors the same force I use barring chords with my index finger.Therefore the guitar stays in perfect tune no matter where on the neck I place it.Its small and compact and does not get in the way at all.And because of its size I hardly notice it on the neck.The release is quick and very easy to move up and down the fretboard.I realize it is a bit more expensive than other capos but belive me its well worth it.I love this capo and I'm sure you will too.

G7 In 7th HeavenI have used several capo's over the years, and can say that this is the most versatile one out there!
No more fret bumps, buzzes, or irritating handles to get in the way.
I have used it on both electric and acoustics with no problems, and cannot find a flaw!
Over time I will have one in all my guitar cases!!!

G7th CapoNeed an awesome easy to use capo? Get this one! I'm not a huge capo user, but I've been around long enough to use some less than ideal ones- this is the best I've ever used!

Well worth it!It's expensive but well worth it. It's one handed use makes it as easy to use as a Kyser Quick Change. There'st no string buzz and no re-tuning. You gotta get this.

The Best CapoPricey for a capo, but well worth it. Unlike other brands (Kyser) where you'd have to re-tune your guitar after putting the capo on the neck, the G7th Capo applies just the right amount of pressure to keep the notes from being muted or bending out of tune. Now, I have found my self transposing songs, that normally i wouldn't. The G7th capo fluidly changes keys and I don't have to deal with the hassle of re-tuning every time I move the capo up a fret or two, like with the traditional capo mentioned above! Solid brushed aluminum construction. Very low profile, doesn't get in your way at all.
If I had to choose one capo to take with on an some epic adventure... this would be the one.

Worth every penny!I've been playing for over 40 years and have never found anything that compares. It fits all my guitars, acoustic & electric, goes on instantly, no string buzz and NO retuning! Absolutely worth every penny!

The best I've usedJust not 5 (because one cannot be blown away by a capo unless it makes coffee for you and rolls your...well, you know): This is the best capo available. Strong, built like the proverbial brick house of shite. When in use it actually sounds like the nut has been moved. Yeah yeah expensive--but get it...you won't buy another one EVER!

superbThough I never had to retune with any capo ( the right pressure just behind the fret will do, btw) I tried the G7 for fun after loosing all my Shubbs. At first the weight might be a bit daunting. Feels like a monkey wrench on my boutique flat-top, and it throws the balance a bit. (Don't drop that bad boy on your sound board) But it is super easy to use, and the dense mass seem to add tone and sustain. I like it a lot. Now the Shubbs feels a bit lightweight in contrast, still has its place in my tool box.

Solid CapoA little practice to get comfortable with changing it, but it fits my guitar perfectly, leaves no marks, and frets the strings firmly. Very dependable performance.

An expensive fret-lobster, but holds its place.If it wasn't for the price, I'd recommend this capo to everyone. It's sturdy and solid, tunes right. I've had other capos "walk" on me, but this one is tight and the action is great. Also not much to stick up over the fretboard to interfere with playing. Expensive, but worth it.

G7 capoGreat capo, Ian really not a capo fan because I can just play barred chords.but needed that open sound for a song so I gave it a try. I was well pleased with how it works so I don't think you whould be disapointed in this one. Recommened to all who what top of the line and not just one that will work and get you by. You get what you pay for.

G7 capoI am extremely happy with this no buzz capo. It would be even better if they made it smaller. Make it the size of a schubb and I will buy one for each of my guitars. Thanks G7John

Awkward but goodThe capo works very well, and the way the mechanism works is great. Doesn't matter what size neck or even the shape, you still get a good clamp and fretting of the strings. Removing it is a bit awkward though. If the release lever operated in the reverse direction, it would be easy and natural to remove the capo and grab it in one smooth fluid motion.

Good but not perfectConsidering the other reviews and the extra high price, I had high hopes in buying this capo. The shortcomings of most capos is that they tend to sharpen the overall pitch by around 10 - 20 cents. While the shubb capo is sharper than this one, the G7 is still raising the pitch around 10 cents overall. In general the pressure is slightly more even (more uniform sharpening) - still the result too different from the others. Considering the price difference, I am disappointed with my purchase. Additionally with using 13's on my acoustic, capoing at the first fret can result in a slight buzz due to insufficient locked pressure in this mechanism.
A good capo - however not the perfect one it is selling itself as. Not worth the price.
