My Favorite Capo

I now own 9 of these capos. I have one in the case with each of my guitars. They work great and make it easy to change from song to song when your are on stage with one guitar.

Definitely worth a try!

These capos are really cool….working on the concept of less pressure on the fretboard rather than more pressure that all other capos use---the tension is dialed in with the thumbwheel. I've found it very useful for my shows when I'm doing songs with major capo changes up and down the neck. Traditional capos tend to make the high and especially the low 'E' strings sharp; this one does a much better job at keeping things in tune up the neck. I still have to adjust a little bit, but no way near the hassle that my other capos require---and to have to mess with that during a gig is truly annoying. One thing to remember: if you use a Hercules guitar stand, the capo will 'drift' a bit when sitting on the stand because of the lower pressure on the fretboard. Just check it when taking it off this type of stand to make sure it's in it's proper position. I bought 3 of these from Sweetwater because they work so good!

NS Tri-Action Capo

I like it a lot! No buzzing or dead spots. The black matches most of my guitars.

A Must buy capo from Planet Wave

This capo does the job - it is a quick one hand operation. I can change the tension as needs require. I can't believe I lived with my 30 year old capo for so long - this design is amazing.

Best capo I've used...

Bought one of these on a lark, and have since bought one for each of my guitars. Even pressure (and adjustable), quick on and off, and well built.
