Planet Waves CP02 NS Capo Black 6-12 String Electric/Acoustic Capo

About this Planet Waves NS Capo Black

The Planet Waves NS Capo Pro in black is made from aircraft grade aluminum 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 micrometer 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.

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.

great little capo
