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 own 3 capos and this is by far the worse. The only positive thing is I can use this one on only 5 strings for a quick way to do alternate tunings -- however, with this capo, it pulls the strings to the side doing that, so it is not very good at that. Once this capo is on the guitar, you have to keep wiggling and moving it to reduce the string buzz. I tried the tension adjustment in small steps up and down and this made little difference except at the loose end where the buzz got really bad on all strings. Do not expect to quickly put this on your guitar and begin playing -- you will need to wiggle it around to get the sound sort of ok. For reference, my other 2 capos were very cheap no-name brands and I had NO complaints on them at all and this is being used on a Rainsong guitar with light Martin SP Lifespan strings. Maybe it would work OK on an electric? I have not yet tried it on any of my Martin guitars to see if it is any better on those.

I almost didn't buy it because of the other two Planetwaves products I had bought -- their string cleaner and 0-Port "device". Both of those were completely worthless and went in the garbage and it is probably where this capo will go.

Awesome I like it better than the dunlop, nice slim profile and low resistance to clamp and unclamp! Would buy again. We will see how long it lasts now...so far so good....

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

    I have a box of capos. This one is the best. I don't have to retune and it takes less than half of the grip pressure of other capos to lock itself in place. Amazing. Pretty sure they used magic in making it.

        I can control the amount of pressure the capo applies. I also like the orientation of the grip. The pick holder is a nice touch.

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

          In the past I've owned Shub and Kyser which were OK, but they had some issues with tuning. These capos pressed too hard on the strings causing them to go out of tune, especially on the fatter strings. The NS Tri-Action Capo does not do this. It provides the right amount of pressure to bar to fret without changing the tuning. I will be buying these for now on.

              I like the low profile which enables easier access to fretted notes near the capo. One handed operation is also very nice for quick changes.
