OVERVIEW

An all new capo with a break-through design that applies even tension on any 6 string acoustic or electric.

The NS Tri-Action capo in black assures buzz-free, in-tune performance at any fret. The patent-pending Tri-Action geometry reduces the force required to open and close the capo and applies even tension regardless of neck profile. Combined with the micrometer tension adjustment and direct horizontal pressure, the Tri-Action Capo virtually eliminates pulling the strings side to side and the need to retune during use. Additionally, the lightweight aluminum construction adds negligible weight to the neck of the instrument. The capo features an integrated pick holder and is a Ned Steinberger design.

FEATURES
  • Designed for acoustic and electric guitars with radiused fretboards
  • Micrometer tension adjustment assures buzz-free in-tune performance at every fret
  • Single hand, easy to operate Tri-Action Geometry; clamps to the headstock when not in use
  • Aircraft grade aluminum construction
  • Designed for 6-string electric and acoustic guitars

I saw this when it first came out and had to try it. I have used many types of capos over the years, all types and prices, from top to bottom. This capo works great for me on my 6 string guitars, and I especially like using it on my Rickenbacker 360/12. I am able to adjust the tension of the clamping force to fit each size of neck, depending on the specific guitar. There is no buzzing and it goes on and off quickly each time. I plan on buying another.

I bought this capo to use on 2 of my 12 string acoustics, a Maton and a Japanese Takamine. It could not hold down the octave strings on both guitars on all but a couple of the frets. The strings wouldn't ring through just thud like a rock on the ground. I lol'd and took it back to the shop. Might be fine for an electric or six string acoustic but not recommended if you play a 12 string.

      It's an adjustable capo, pretty straight forward. The only issue you may have is with an oddly shaped face of the neck. Which if it curves a little it still works. Pick holder is handy too!

            Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves NS Tri-Action Capo:

            The adjustment screw-thingy is smooth and easy to turn, the concept is wonderful and it mostly works. I have no problems with my electric, but that has a fat neck and the capo grips easily. My acoustic's neck, on the other hand, has a slimmer-profile. I found that if I want to add some squeeze I need to completely loosen the adjustment screw-thingy, then move it to the appropriate position, then tighten it again. I don't perform with my acoustic on any sort of normal basis, but I can imagine how that process would become annoying if I did. For the long-time casual player like myself, however, it works just fine and I see no reason to replace it.

              I have two of these now. The adjustable tension allows use without having to re-tune.

                    Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves NS Tri-Action Capo:

                    I use a capo for a handful of tunes in club gigs, and more extensively in worship applications. Over the years, I have owned a few different makes. For a number of years I used a very well known and popular brand. After a recent re-fret, I did some research about capos in regards to fret wear. I decided to purchase the NS Tri-Action. It is far the best capo I've tried. Sturdy construction, smooth action and very little re-tune when I clamp it on. I use a number of different guitars. Having the ability to adjust the tension makes it very versatile tool indeed.

                        Needed a versatile quality capo for acoustic guitar. My Recording King ROS-6 acoustic guitar has a pretty thick neck. Neither Kyser or Dunlop 'quick snap on' capos fit. Read the NS Tri-Action reviews and ordered through MF. Works great, able to cover 7 frets. Adjustable tension nice feature.
