First the bad news. It's not particularly well made. The anodization comes off the black model and the adjustment knob unscrews and falls off frequently and gets lost sometimes -- a real annoyance. The Victor and Shubb capos are better made.Nevertheless this is the capo I use (for acoustic guitar). That's because it's easier than others to adjust out string buzzes and particularly because it sounds better -- bass strings keep their resonance as you capo up the neck. Other musicians around here (Boston) have noticed it too.Now c'mon Planet waves -- crimp the end of the adjustment screw so it stays on the capo.

I ordered this to try instead of my Shubb. Good design. Nice looking, but. . . it takes a long time to attach and remove the capo- about 5 turns of the screw. For me, this is just too long. I often play songs that require fast key changes (moving the capo) so my capo changes need to be quick. I'm going back to my Shubb which is very fast and easy to change. However, if you don't need to do that, then this is an excellent capo.

Comments about Planet Waves NS Capo Silver:

I have had this capo for over 1 year and use it every day . I also have 3 schubb capos and I prefer the planet wave because it eliminates the buzz!!!
I love this capo because it eliminates buzz and I made it better by cutting off about 3/8 of an inch so that it does not extend below the neck!!!

Comments about Planet Waves NS Capo Silver:

I really like this capo. It's lightweight,easy to put on. The other capo I had was way too heavy- I couldn't use it, It was difficult to open. I've had this for about two weeks now, and I love it! I'm going to buy another one.

Comments about Planet Waves NS Capo Silver:

I just received this capo via UPS an hour ago. I love it already. It is very easy to put on and off and I don't get any buzz with it at all. It beats the heck out of the capos I have been using for years. You just place it over the strings and turn the wheel which requires very little effort. It is a nicely designed product, very pleasant to look at. I would have rated it a 5 if it had been a dollar or two cheaper.

This is the one!

Comments about Planet Waves NS Capo Silver:

This is one elegant design and is built like a precision machine. Light weight and small small small. Doesn?t get in the way when playing and doesn?t feel like some of the other crazy gadgets that hang out all over the place when attached your neck. It can be installed/removed with one hand ? you?ll get the hang of it after 2 or 3 tries, and the knob can be turned with a single finger. The real beauty is that you can apply just the right amount of tension to capo your strings without going sharp ? sweeeeet.

The perfect capo

By Q-jD8Ec

Comments about Planet Waves NS Capo Silver:

I have a dunlop quick release capo and this one. This is the only one I use. Very well made. I need to get a second one to put in my other guitar case. Low profile doesn't crowd you in first position chords. Adjustable tension works very well. Dial in just enough tension to fret the stings clearly. Keeps from pulling strings sharp. Especially helpful on electric guitars with jumbo frets. You can't go wrong with this capo. Although it's not a "quick release" style capo, it still goes on and off quickly and easily. It can be put on and taken off with 1 hand.

Fine capo,clamp works well. Needs two hands to install, one to hold the capo and one to tighten the screw.Workmanship is top quality, finish is superb. Lots of value for the dollars.
