Planet Waves reinvents the capo.

Ned Steinberger, the famed product designer, worked with Planet Waves to design this innovative patent-pending capo. The result is a capo that's strong yet lightweight with one-handed operation that allows extremely precise intonation. The NS Capo is made of a sleek, ultralight aerospace aluminum that adds virtually no weight to the neck of your guitar. Plus it has a smooth micrometer screw to ensure the perfect pressure for buzz-free performance at every fret. Works with 6- and 12-string guitars with a simple, convenient single-handed operation that makes it perfect for any guitarist, whether you're a beginner or a professional.

    Accurate & Affordable Capo

    Comments about Planet Waves NS Aluminum Screw Type Capo:

    Just received this capo a few weeks ago and have been impressed and pleased with the results.
    I've paid twice the price for other capos that have made the treble strings go sharp. This capo's adjustable tension allows for just the right amount of pressure to be applied to eliminate the buzz and not detune the strings. For those who are used to the spring-loaded capos, this is not a "quick change" capo, but after working with it a few days, I find that it is not that big of a deal. Highly recommend purchasing this capo.

    One of the best!

    Comments about Planet Waves NS Aluminum Screw Type Capo:

    I use a capo, actually several capos, throughout my sets - not for key changes but in combination with alt tunings and as partial capos to get interesting voicings. I've used many brands of capos over the years and right now this is my favorite. I also enjoy using partial capos and these are inexpensive and very easily modified with a band saw or hacksaw.

    I especially like the ability to control the tension so that I can hold down the strings but not pull them out of key. "Spring" type capos do not offer this type of control and some people have a hard time squeezing them onto the guitar neck properly. The adjustable tension capability of the NS is most important when I am using a modified partial version because the capoed strings must not be pulled sharp when played against the open strings.

    I've used these capos for years on a daily basis, they are well made, durable and light, yet strong and easy to use. They are not "quick change" capos, but I don't need that - nor do many people in my opinion. I keep a partial version of this capo in my pocket all the time and never know it's there because it's to light and small. Highly recommended!

    Great Design, Great Price

    By John-F2yUJ

    Comments about Planet Waves NS Aluminum Screw Type Capo:

    Ive had this item for about a week, and it performs flawlessly. Excellent intonation and ease of use. The only problem I can see with this capo is taking it on and off. Unlike some of the trigger capos, you have to loosen/tighten the thumb screw. Not a big deal though, and that same screw means that the capo will always have enough tension to properly depress the strings - something some spring/trigger capos can't claim. If you're looking for an ultra precise capo for a great price, check this one out.
