The G7th Performance Capo is a completely new approach to capo design. Using a patented wrap-spring clutch mechanism, it has none of the disadvantages of conventional capos, but instead offers enhanced performance and is simple to use. Not only that, it looks and feels great! Even Eric Clapton has been spotted using one, on You Tube
Designer Nick Campling explains:
"I've struggled to find a capo I can live with for the best part of 30 years. They all either pulled my guitar out of tune, were fiddly to adjust, or they got in the way of my hand. Some just didn't work! The G7th Performance Capo is a result of combining my product design skills with my needs as a guitarist."
A new design
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.

"This is the capo we've all been waiting for - instantly happy and adaptable on any instrument at any fret position and - this is the best bit - you can tune through it!" Simon Nicol view other artists' quotes
HOW TO USE:
Until I bought the G7th I hated using a capo as they always seem to get in the way. This capo changes all that. It is easy to use unobtrusive and quickly adjustable to any neck. It is so well made and designed where form and function meet it is almost a work of art. I can imagine someone buying a G7th even if they did not own a guitar.
Amazing in a word. I never really wanted a capo for any importance and once owned a schubb deluxe capo but i much prefer this model. It looks better, it feels better and now i dont go anywhere without it clipped proudly on my Gibsons head. It\'s not too bulky or complicated, its simple, easy, looks amazing and will last me a life time. truly happy with my purchase.
