D'Addario/Planet Waves NS Capos

The D'Addario/Planet Waves NS Capo line offers multiple innovative and easy to use options that fit a wide array of instruments and player preferences.

NS Guitar Capo Pro

The NS Capo Pro is constructed from aircraft grade aluminum making it rugged enough to take a beating, but keeping it very lightweight on the fretboard. Equipped with a patented micrometer for tension adjustment, the NS Capo can be dialed in to ensure the proper force is being applied to the neck of the guitar. This feature makes dealing with buzzing notes and tuning issues a thing of the past. The NS Capo Pro is ideal for use on 6 and 12 string electric and acoustic guitars.

NS Guitar Capo Lite

The NS Capo Lite uses a durable molded ABS thermoplastic construction to offer the most lightweight and cost effective choice. Ideal for use on all acoustic and electric 6 string guitars the NS Capo Lite can be adjusted to provide the exact tension need for your guitar. Designed for guitars with radiused fretboards, the NS Capo Lite greatly reduces the need to retune after applying your capo.

NS Classical Guitar Capo

The NS Classical Guitar Capo, the third option within the NS Capo line, takes the design elements of the NS Capo Pro and tailors them to fit the needs of classical guitarists. With a contoured design and a flat radius intended specifically for the wider fretboard found on most classical guitars, the NS Classical Guitar Capo delivers the sleek construction and single handed operation of the NS design.

NS Capo Features
  • Micrometer tension adjustment for buzz-free in-tune performance at every fret
  • Single hand operation
  • NS Capo Pro and Lite designed for acoustic and electric guitars with radiused fretboards
  • NS Classical Guitar Capo designed for classical guitars with zero fretboard radius
  • A patent-pending Ned Steinberger design
Tuned In

The importance of being able to play and stay in tune cannot be understated. With this in mind, the NS Capo design was crafted to allow every player to refine the tension the capo applies to their fretboard. This not only assures buzz-free clarity across all strings, but keeps strings from being pulled sharp by over-tensioning. In the long run this can also benefit the maintenance of your fretboard and save on upkeep.

The capo is working great so far...
S. Abraham
A very nicely designed capo -- it works well, is easy to put on, move, and take off, is good looking and has a nice quality feel to it.
UncleWalter
You also get used to the screw pretty quickly and now, I am also able to move this capo around with only one hand!

Style Name: Planet Waves NS CapoColor Name: Classical Guitar Verified Purchase
I bought the Planet Waves Guitar Capo in black the other day, and it works great!

I did a lot of shopping around because I wanted a good capo for my acoustic electric guitar, and when I came upon this one I liked the style.

BENEFITS:
-The Capo is screw on from the bottom, so that means you can adjust how tight it is on the strings (So you can barre chords or just silence strings).
-The black looks great, and the material is nice- I don't think it could scratch the guitar neck unless you wore off the thick padding.
-This could go either way, but the capo is nice and small. I was a bit surprised when I got it, but it works just fine. Would probably be easy to lose if you have a messy place though!

DRAWBACKS:
You can't really mount the capo on the headstock, even if you try to screw it on. The only way I can figure out to keep it on is to clamp both the top tuning key and the headstock. (Not recommended of course)

OVERALL:
This is a great capo. It's built well, does what it needs to do, and it looks nice. Like I said, my only gripe is that it doesn't fit on the headstock very well. Definitely recommended!

Style Name: Planet Waves NS CapoColor Name: Classical Guitar Verified Purchase
Using a capo on a classical guitar can be difficult -- the neck is wide, and thick. Intonation suffers, and the bass strings tend to buzz. The Planet Waves NS Classical Guitar Capo solved these problems. Because it is tightened onto the neck by a screw action, it always pushes the strings down against the neck straight.

Classical guitars are also light weight; this capo is made of aluminum and is also quite light so it doesn't change the feel of the guitar in your hands. It has a sleek, low profile and therefore doesn't interfere with left hand fingering as can be the case with spring capos.

Some players feel it takes too long to put it on the guitar or object to the fact that it requires both hands. I don't find that to be the case, presumably you're reasonably coordinated or you wouldn't attempt to play classical guitar. Yes, you'll need to use both hands, but ultimately the Planet Waves NS is a quicker install because it works correctly the first time. The worst thing is starting to play a song and realizing one's capo isn't getting the job done.

Capos aren't used too extensively in classical guitar music, but you still need one in your case. But if you're like me and also like to play your classical for finger style folk or pop music (esp. 'Americana') you should get one of these.

Now I want one for my steel string guitars too.

Style Name: Planet Waves NS CapoColor Name: Black Verified Purchase
This capos biggest strength, and it's only weakness, is that it has to be tightened each time you put it on. Get this capo if you're very aware of tuning issues that crop up when using one. With my old capo, which just clamps on at one tightness, my B string invariably gets too tight, bringing it noticeably sharp, even when I'm only capo-ing on the 2nd fret. With the NS, one can tighten it just enough to fret the strings without bringing them out of tune. I proved it to myself using a tuner. If you don't care about tuning to this extent, and you want ease of use, then you're probably better off with one of the other models. Since this is the only capo I know of that solves the tuning issue, and I found it in the process of trying to solve that problem, I give it five stars.

WOW!!
Nice capo! Its easy to use one handed and holds nicely on the neck of the guitar. Adjusting this capo is very easy and it even works on my 12 string!! I was leary about it being thermoplastic instead of metal but its really strong. I am glad I purchased this one.
And thanks MacNichol Guitar for the great price!

Style Name: Planet Waves NS CapoColor Name: Classical Guitar Verified Purchase
Holds on tight, and with a little practice you can one-hand it pretty well (just don't open the screw all the way). The best thing about this is that you control the pressure it puts on the strings, rather than a spring action trigger capo. Given that nylon strings aren't as tough as steel, I like the idea of just adding necessary pressure to hold the fret. The only downside is that it can be clumsy to change positions with the guitar on your leg compared to a trigger capo.

Style Name: Planet Waves NS CapoColor Name: Classical Guitar Verified Purchase
This is the first product that I have to give a 1 star in review. I purchased this product on May 2013, I don't believe I have used it more than 20 times. Today I used it and I was not able to untie/detach it because when I "unscrewed" only the nut came off. I had to use a pair of pliers to untie/detach it from the guitar. I was glad I wasn't performing on stage. I can't imagine what would happen if I was.

Style Name: Planet Waves NS CapoColor Name: Lite Verified Purchase
Good product. Simple to use. Not so useful for a Classical style guitar because of its' width. A classical style guitar needs a wider bar to properly contact the strings evenly. This is not the product's fault. I did not read the product description carefully enough. It is designed for a contoured neck guitar.

I don't know why they sell these plastic capos other than the low cost, I suppose. I have a Planet Waves capo made from metal which I like a lot; nice clean design and works great. This "lite" model self-destructed on me during a performance, literally breaking into pieces. Not strong enough, that's all.
