Capo Information
Since the launch of the  company in 2004, G7th has repeatedly raised the bar in capo design and development.
The original Performance capo set a completely new standard in style and performance, consistently winning the gold medal for Best Capo in the coveted Player's Choice Awards* every year since 2005! But even still, in response to requests from guitarist friends, 2014 saw the launch of the all-new G7th Performance 2 capo.

Easy one-handed adjustment.
The Performance 2 is so easy to use - simply squeeze on and squeeze off.  It can be moved seamlessly from fret to fret, or guitar to guitar.

Unique Tension Control Systemô.
This is key to your guitar's tuning stability. You intuitively squeeze the capo to set the minimum tension needed to fret cleanly. Just like playing a barre chord.

Safeguards your Tone & protects your neck.
As on all G7th capos, the inert silicone wrap around rubber and internal G7th design features eliminate deadening of tone and avoid metal to wood contact on your guitar neck.

How does the Performance 2  compare to the original model?

Faster and easier to use. Flipping the internal clutch mechanism through 180° gives the Performance 2 it's unique squeeze on, squeeze off one-handed action.
25% smaller. It's new slimmed down shape is much lower profile than the original  model.
33% lighter.  Some players found the original quite heavy. You don't notice the Performance 2 on your guitar neck.

Choosing G7th means less time positioning your capo and retuning your guitar. Great on stage and in the studio! You get to focus on your music, not on your capo.

The Problem with Conventional Capos...

The capo is a constant source of frustration to guitarists.
  • They can be awkward to use.
  • They can pull your guitar out of tune.
  • They can interfere with the players hand.

The Wrap Spring Clutch Mechanism...

The wrap spring clutch consists of just three elements: a fixed hub, a moving hub, and a spring whose inside diameter is just slightly smaller than the outside diameter of the two hubs. When the spring is forced over the two hubs, attempting to rotate in the direction which opens the capo wraps it down tightly on the hubs, positively engaging them.

Rotation in the other direction, to tighten the capo onto the strings, is not restricted. To release the capo, the control tang is moved in the direction to unwind the spring, thus releasing the clutch.

The beauty of this type of clutch for this application is that it can be adjusted in tiny increments, allowing precise control over how tightly the strings are pressed down.

 
** Did you know... the G7th's clutch mechanism is a modification of a tried-and-tested design used in printers and copiers to provide a simple decoupling and overrun device! **
