      G7th

      A whole new take on capo design that works beautifully.

      The G7th Performance Guitar Capo is designed for enhanced performance and it's simple to use. Not only that, it looks and feels great! Push the lever to release the arms. The G7th Capo fits snugly behind the fret. Squeeze to tighten it from above or below. Simply press the lever to release the capo.

      The wrap spring clutch consists of just 3 elements: a fixed hub, a moving hub, and a spring whose inside diameter is just slightly smaller than the outside diameter of the 2 hubs. When the spring is forced over the 2 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.

      The beauty of this type of clutch for use in a guitar capo is that it can be adjusted in tiny increments. The clutch mechanism is a modified tried-and-tested design used in printers and copiers to provide a simple decoupling and overrun device.

        It is simply the best capo for an all-purpose capo. It works like it should. The finish seems durable. It is super-simple to operate. It can be stored easily on your headstock. To go from stored to installed is a matter of seconds. It adjusts quickly and can be removed and stored easily and quickly. I couldn't be happier. I liked it so much, I bought one for my son for Christmas.
        It does what a capo is supposed to do. It does it in the same natural way as you would barre with your finger.
        Most capos mash the strings against the fretboard. This pulls the strings out of tune. That scenario does not work well when playing with others. With this capo, you decide the pressure.The only other one that does this is the Schub. The difference is that this one won't jump off the neck as the Schub occasionally does. I still love the Schub cut capos. But, for the general, all-purpose capo, I think this is the best design and it is well-produced.
        It goes on easily, removes easily, and stores on your headstock easily. Easy, easy, easy. I saw where someone complained that it took two hands to remove. If you can't remove this one-handed, you should not be playing guitar. I put it on from the top. To remove, grasp the part on the back of the neck between your thumb and middle finger. Reach up with your index finger and pull the little lever.
        This is a well-made piece of hardware. I expect it to last forever.
        This is a pricey capo. However, I like it the best. In the grand scheme of things, it just doesn't cost that much. If you don't lose it, you should only have to buy it once.

        For the price, I thought this little guy would deliver but I was wrong. It functions really well as any capo should but as for transitioning on-the-fly to a different fret or simply removing it during play takes alot of work and time. Additionally, this one doesnt work like a typical spring-loaded capo which self-closes; you have to squeeze it onto the neck/strings.

        A solid well built item, but definitely not something you leave lying around or loan to a friend on jam night. Keep an extra Kyser in your bag for that!

        I just recently got this capo for my 2000 Taylor 314ce, and I LOVE it. It looks and functions amazingly, and is built like a tank. I think this thing is gonna last a LONG time.

            Probably the best capo out there, no doubt. Every string has stayed in tune no matter how high I capo on the fretboard.

            Great build quality, and easy to change frets with one hand.

                This capo is nicely designed, very easy to use and so far, seems to do its job without any problems. I have a few different capos and this one is, by far, the easiest to use. Has good heft and build and is simple to engage and disengage. Some capos can be imposing with all their handles, levers and springs. The 405 is simple, compact and works like its supposed to.

                  I've enjoyed this so much I bought a 2nd and 3rd one to have with my other guitars. It's easy on and off, and you can control clamping tension so it doesn't affect string tuning. Great quality product. Best capo on the market in my experience.

                    A little expensive but you get what you pay for. Fast one-handed operation makes it ideal for performances. If I misplaced it I would buy another immediately.

                      All the variable pressure you need, without screws or excess adjustments. Just press it to the desired pressure and you're ready to go. More forgiving on the larger strings than other capos. Also - works way better on classical and nylon string guitars. Seems to provide a more natural pressure level on the strings. I don't gig without it.

                      Out of the way and after some time it becomnes easier to use than any capo I have ever used . I bought the smaller one but it works so well I will invest in the 407 . It takes a bit of practice but once you learn how it is a one hand deal and you will never know it is on the guitar . for the money it can not be beat stays in tune also
