Morpheus Capo Great Stage Solution
It is a great pleasure to buy from you. I consider Sweetwater the best music equipment shop for brazilians in the USA. I aways recommend you to my friends and to anybody wanting an equipment or instrument in the USA.
Regarding Simon, for sure he is also responsible for this degree of appreciation I have for you. He is very attentive and very reliable aways. He is a great professional.
The equipment I bought from you (Morpheus Capo) is really astonishing. In fact, I did not buy it to use on my guitar as I prefer to use the physical capo. I have no problems using a capo. I bought it to use on my Variax bass and I have to say it works much better on the bass than on the guitar.
Bassists are very resistant to use a "physical capo" on the bass and I agree with them: it is in fact weird, to say the least. But with the Morpheus Capo I can now use different tunings on the bass for live presentations without the displeasure of a physical capo on the bass being noticed by the audience. I would say this product is really more directed to the bass player than to the guitar player, because using a physical capo on the guitar is not a problem at all and it really sounds better (Morpheus capo produces glitches on the higher notes as any pitch shifter). But for the bass, it is an entirely different scenario. Using an F sharp tuning on the bass required a bass tuned to F sharp which is expensive and not aways affordable (you have to use thinner strings because it requires more tension on the neck also, and, of course, an additional bass). With the Morpheus capo it is possible to use just the same basic setup with no worries. Just plug in the same bass tuned to standard tuning, choose the tuning you want and it is perfect. Now, playing those weird bass lines on F sharp or G is not a headache for the bass player anymore.
And the construction of this stomp is really impressive. Built on rugged metal enclosure, it is prepared for the heavy duty use required on even the most aggressive stages.
