Product Description


About this Planet Waves NS Capo Black

The Planet Waves NS Capo Pro in black is made from aircraft grade aluminium for use on acoustic and electric 6 and 12 string guitars. The NS Capo Pro assures buzz-free in-tune performance at any fret. A patented micrometre adjustment mechanism allows the player to dial in the exact tension needed for clear ringing notes without excessive force in any position on the neck. This greatly reduces the need to retune your guitar during and after capo use. The sleek construction can withstand the toughest playing or touring schedule while adding very little additional weight or obstruction to the instrument. Planet Waves NS Pro Series capos are the result of an ongoing collaboration between famed product designer Ned Steinberger, Jim D'Addario and Planet Waves.

An effective and very light capo for electric guit

By: on 4 February 2023
I generally do not like capos. However, the Planet Waves CP02 NS is the best that I have found. It can be fitted and removed very quickly and easily. It is extremely light, even though made of a durable metal. For my modern Stratocaster guitar necks the curve of the capo is near perfect. This means that I can adjust the capo to a light tension and avoid tuning issues without getting string buzz, etc. I have now bought TWO of these capos, one for home practice and one for my "gig bag" (because I inevitably find myself leaving behind small items like capos etc!!). Anyway, I definitely could not be more pleased with this product. It is not the cheapest capo out there, but it is well worth paying that bit extra for one that works as it should.

12 string Capo

Great capo works brilliantly on my 12 string. Neat, slim line, and easy to adjust. Fits nicely across the nut when not used. Way better than the Clasical Guitar capo I was using before. If your looking for 12 string capo, here it is!

Hey there, thank you so much for leaving a great review. It really helps other customers out there.

Worked well for a while, then fell apart

This seemed to be a great capo at first. No buzz, solid material, doesn't get in the way... Unfortunately the screw is composed of two bits, that came apart within maybe 30 sessions, and could not be fixed... Given the price, I would not recommend this.

2nd capo like this I have bought as I loved the 1st one.

As other reviews suggest this Capo punches well above it's weight! It does a great job especially on 12 string which is what I got it for. Hope it now lasts the distance.

Good things come in small packages.

When this product arrived I thought "wow so small and flimsy looking" but how wrong can you be. This is a most robust and capo, easy to attach, and easy to move. The micro clamp is a joy to use. I can capo back as far as possible,so my fingers rarely come into contact with the beast

Never fret again...

The capo for my 6 string acoustic wouldn't properly fret all the strings on my 12 string, so I bought this based on the description. It doesn't work like traditional capos but instead you adjust the screw to increase the tension. This works perfectly on my 12 string as it's big enough to cover the width of the neck and tight enough to ensure all strings are fretted. The capo is also seriously heavy duty and looks like it'll do some hard yards. Very happy with my purchase.
