OVERVIEW

A smart capo that adjusts to apply exactly the right amount of pressure.

With its light weight and low profile, the G7th Newport Lightweight Capo allows for fast, accurate capoing with fine tune adjustment - in position - on the fretboard of your instrument.

An advancement on existing designs, the Newport's refined adjustment means that only the right amount of pressure needs be applied to clamp the strings - dramatically improving tuning problems and without the loss of sustain associated with the thick rubber of other capos.

Its classic G7th styling will also look great on your guitar.


Try this impressive capo and you'll wonder how you survived without it. Order today.

      This Capo is worth it. The way grips back on itself sets an incredibly clean tone for the strings.

            3 great things about this capo. 1, it is small & unobtrusive so that it doesn't interfere with my playing. 2, no need to retune when applying this capo anywhere on the neck. 3, & most important to me, it holds the sustain very well. When using this capo it's almost as if I'm playing open strings, the sustain is that good. No deadening or dampening of the sound. Great product & worth the price!

              Comments about G7th Newport Lightweight Capo:

              This is an excellent capo. I've been using a Dunlop for years & never realized how much the thick rubber was taking away from the sound until I bought this capo. The G7th holds the strings in tune very well, & I havn't noticed any loss of sustain or harmonics. The sustain is so well, that using this capo anywhere on the necks sounds like playing open strings. It is also unobtrusive, so it doesn't interfere with my playing at all. I am very pleased with this & would recommend it to anyone.

                  Comments about G7th Newport Lightweight Capo:

                  I've tried several capos over the years and I like this one the best so far. I notice that I have better control over the tension it exerts upon the smaller strings, thereby keeping them from going too sharp. I have found that it works best on my guitar if I insert it over the guitar neck from the bottom of the neck with the capo's opening pointing upwards. This seems to allow the G7th Newport's adjustable tension knob to favor its pinch force over the E,B & G small strings, which, as you know, are the strings more prone to going sharp when using a capo. Something else that is helpful when using capos (I saw this in a video once) is to position capos nearer to the frets instead of in the middle between the frets. Positioning a capo a little closer to the fret (but not too close) seems to cause a more equalized pressure over the six strings before they touch the fret.

                  Comments about G7th Newport Lightweight Capo:

                  It is easy to use and if applied correctly you will never have to retune . it is light weight and small and works. You have to use it for awhile before you figure out the best way to apply it. They also replaced the capo for a strange defect it would no longer tighten down, but they gave me no problem and sent me a new one I also kept the old one I want to try and figure out what went wrong but they do stand behind their product and that is priceless. I use nothing else but this one now. The newport is a great capo . It came from the UK and that is a long distance . No shipping charges for me .
