      OVERVIEW

      Easy to secure and release with even tension across neck regardless of neck shape.

      The NS Artist Capo utilizes a patented trigger geometry reducing the force required to open and close the capo while applying even tension regardless of neck profile. Combined with the micrometer tension adjustment and direct horizontal pressure, the NS Artist Capo virtually eliminates pulling the strings side to side and the need to retune during use. Additionally, the trigger design and lightweight aluminum construction adds no obstruction or noticeable weight to the neck of the instrument. The NS Artist Capo includes an NS Mini/Micro Tuner mounting bracket, allowing you to add tuning capabilities to the capo.

      Tuner sold separately.

      Planet Waves products promise to be the most innovative professional musician's tools available. Their diverse capo line is no exception. Many of their groundbreaking models are the result of a productive joint effort between famed designer Ned Steinberger and Jim D'Addario. No matter what syle of capo you prefer, Planet Waves has a capo for you.

      FEATURES
      • Designed for use on 6-string electric and acoustic guitars
      • Micrometer tension adjustment assures buzz-free in-tune performance at every fret
      • Trigger geometry offers easy use and even clamping tension

      Good capo

      Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Artist Capo:

      A very good functional capo for 6 string guitars. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because it does not work well on my 12-string. Overall, I would recommend this item.

          I've finally graduated from a very old capo I got from my parents long ago, and I was surprised at how incredibly nice this one is. It just feels like very good quality, and is extremely easy to use. I love the pick holder on it...because I normally misplace my picks!

            So much easier than the clip-on capo that I was using. Feels very sturdy in your hand and holds the strings down quite well.

                  All of the D'Addario capos are terrific. Make sure you try them out to see which fits your playing style the best. This one has the handle mechanism on fretboard side when engaged. They also have models that have this mechanism behind the neck when engaged. I have and use both. These are vastly superior to the Kyser models since the allow adjustment of the tension!

                      This is a very well made product, time will tell if it lasts long enough for me to lose it and need another one (I bought two). It has a very fluid movement mechanism and works well with my electric guitar. It does not, however, work well with my Ovation acoustic-electric, providing too little pressure on the strings to be effective.

                      Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Artist Capo:

                      I put this capo up with the Shubb and the G7 so far. Good quality and doesn't use the G.I. Joe kung foo grip like the Kyser. It's what the Kyser could be. For my tastes now the only capos I use are the Shubb, artist D'addario and G7 performance 2...the best out there. I'd rank the the G7 the best and the shubb and artist tied for close second. If you don't have to change a lot and don't mind sticking the capo in a pocket, the Shubb is great, if you need to make fast changes and want the capo on the headstock than the Artist is for you.
                      All are pro quality
