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 guitar capos, but instead offers enhanced performance and is simple to use. Not only that, it looks and feels great! Designed for 6-string acoustic and electric guitars, also works on most 12-string guitars up to the 5th fret.


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.
