Review: Planet Waves NS Capo
Fine adjustable screw to provide just the right amount of tension
Made of aluminum
Inexpensive, but doesn't feel cheap
Can be used one handed
Small footprint means it won't get in the way of your playing
Screw top can take a few more seconds to setup vs spring loaded clamp style capo
Its a Capo, inexpensive, and it does the job very well. JT3Jon OUT! (throws mic down and walks off stage)
Ok, I’ll get into some detail. I must admit I dont use a Capo that much (which is why I went with an inexpensive one, though it seems most aren’t that expensive) but when I do need a capo this one does the trick. I guess if you were in a need of quickly putting one on and taking one off (i.e. in the middle of a gig) you might be better off with a spring loaded one, but if you’re like me and just wanted one to experiment with different keys, then this one with the screw top works fine. In fact, its nice to be able to dictate via the screw just how much pressure you actually want on the strings. Its also a very slick and small design so it doesn’t get in the way while playing and stores very nicely when not in use, and made of seemingly good enough quality Aluminum that it should last.
Overall a very nice Capo I have no problems recommending to anyone who doesn’t specifically need a spring loaded one.
