OVERVIEW

Plays in tune, easy to move.

The NS Reflex Capo assures buzz-free, in-tune performance at any fret. The patent-pending Side-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 Reflex Capo virtually eliminates pulling the strings side to side and the need to re-tune 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.


The capo elevated to precision equipment.

I've used Kyser quick capos for years and while I like the convenience, the tension slacks after a couple years and strings start buzzing. It was also useless on my 12 string. The D'addario has the convenience of a quick capo with the added ability to adjust tension, making it useful for a 12 string as well. The pick holder slots are a nice touch. The only drawback is that the higher you adjust the tension, the smaller the opening depth of the capo. After so much, you simply can't open it unless you lower the tension, but I only experience this when using it on my 12 string. Other than that, I honestly don't know why you'd want any other capo. Kyser would have to cut their prices in half to compete with this because there's really no point in buying one.

Bought it for a Gibson acoustic. Chunky neck - Planet Waves screw-adjustable capo didn't work for me. This one does pretty well up to fifth fret. (Workd well on my Taylor"s neck.) The card that the capo was attached to said there is an integral pick holder. The pick holder on my capo must have been lost in transit, or I am too blind to see it!

5.0

Another superb capo design from Ned Steinberger

Comments about D'Addario NS Reflex Capo:

I don't see any significant improvement in this design over Steinberger's other tension-adjustable capos, but that's OK because they're all terrific. In addition to being able to dial in just the right amount of tension, I appreciate how easy these capos are to take on and off. Other non-adjustable spring tensioned capos can be hard to squeeze, especially after your left hand is tired out from playing. Perfect for quick key changes in the middle of a song. And this capo can clamp to the headstock.

        Comments about D'Addario NS Reflex Capo:

        When this capo is tight enough to be useful, it has to be unscrewed to get it off the neck of the guitar. Love the idea, but they need to go back to the drawing board. I feel like the guinea pig. It would cost almost as much to ship it back as I paid for it.

                Easy to use, designed to be gentle on your instrument. Up until this purchase I have only used a Kyser Capo which did the job. I needed another Capo so I decided to go with the good reviews on Musicians friend and try the D'addario. I like the ability to adjust the tension on this reflex capo. Happy with the purchase.

                Comments about D'Addario NS Reflex Capo:

                When playing out, 2 or 3 of these in different colors with adjustments pre-set, (By a tuner), for the different neck positions to be played in would pretty much fit all needs, (at leeast on 1 guitar).
