OVERVIEW

A breakthrough in precision.

Designed for 4- or 5-string banjos and mandolin, the NS Banjo/Mandolin Capo Pro assures buzz-free, in-tune performance at any fret. A micrometer adjustment mechanism allows you 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 instrument during and after capo use. The sleek aircraft grade aluminum construction can withstand the toughest playing/touring schedule while adding negligible additional weight or obstruction to the instrument.

FEATURES
  • Lightweight aircraft grade aluminum construction
  • Designed specifically for 4- or 5-string banjo and mandolin
  • Micrometer tension adjustment

    Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves NS Banjo/Mandolin Capo:

    This capo fits perfectly on my mandolin and my tenor banjo. It is super easy to use and doesn't loosen up or move around on the neck. It is also small enough not to look obtrusive on the instrument.

      Easy to put on and adjust with just the right amount of tension on the four strings. My banjo has the spikes on the fifth string so this works perfectly!!!

                Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves NS Banjo/Mandolin Capo:

                Excellent capo. Works great on mandolins with radius fretboards. No more buzzing, as with spring-type capos. Just put in place, tighten only as much as necessary, and play. Also, it is much less visible to audience, and does not interfere with hands when making a chord.

                        It is small, especially compared to a guitar capo, but it has advantage that it fits compactly on banjo and mandolin necks and ukelele I have.

                            My son uses this capo on an older Gibson mandolin. When using another spring-loaded capo, he could not get good sound at some frets. With this capo, the right amount of pressure can be easily adjusted so that the mandolin doesn't buzz or that the strings aren't pulled out of pitch. He is well pleased with this capo.
