Not All Capos Are Born Alike!Winner of Guitarist magazine's "Gold Award" in the UK, and an Acoustic Guitar magazine bronze award in the US (after only 2 months on sale), the G7th Performance capo is a completely new approach to capo design. It boasts none of the disadvantages of conventional capos, but instead offers enhanced performance and is brain-dead really simple to use. Not only that, it looks and feels amazing!
The G7th 12-string capo is designed specifically for 12-string guitars. Features a longer arm than the standard model - for wider fingerboards - and a specially formulated rubber to apply even pressure to the octave strings.
The G7th Performance capo's wrap spring clutch consists of just three elements: a fixed hub, a moving hub, and a spring whose inside diameter is just a little smaller than the outside diameter of the two hubs. When the spring is forced over the two hubs, attempting to rotate in the direction which opens the capo wraps it down tightly on the hubs, positively engaging them.
Rotation in the other direction, to tighten the G7th capo onto the strings, is not restricted. To release the capo, the control tang is moved in the direction to unwind the spring, thus releasing the clutch.
