Adjust its tactile dial to terminate banjo and mandolin string buzzing and achieve an in-tune performance.

With a shorter fretting bar than a standard guitar capo, The Planet Waves NS Drop Tune Capo can be used three ways: banjos, mandolins, and part of the neck for special tunings (can also be used with guitars). The NS Drop Tune Capois the product of an ongoing collaboration between famed product designer Ned Steinberger and J. D'Addario & Company. It employs a sleek, ultra-light design for fast and accurate one-hand positioning on the instrument's neck. Just turn the smooth, tactile dial to eliminate string buzzing and enjoy a perfect, in-tune performance. The Planet Waves capo's fast, micrometer screw assures perfect pressure for buzz-free, in-tune performance at every fret. Lightweight, aerospace-grade aluminum adds virtually no weight to the instrument's neck when in use.

  • Is Newer Better?

    As reviewed by Maxwell Whitney on 4/4/2011

    This capo has quite a different appearance than some of the more traditional capos. For starters, there is not a handle or trigger that you simply grab to remove or replace, and that is what made me skeptical in the first place. But let me assure you, this capo gets the job done as good or even better than some of the other capos! Design: This capo has a plus in this area, because it is small, light, and easily slips into pockets and such. As mentioned above, it doesn't have the fancy triggers or "quick-release", but it does have a tension adjustment knob, so you are always in-tune without buzzing at the frets. Functionality: This capo holds up strong. After some practice, you can easily move the capo to different frets, and when you're not using it, you can just slide it up the strings and over the nut onto the headstock. I give this product 4 stars because it will take a while to get use to, but it is well worth it! Looks: The sleek black design goes with just about any guitar and looks great. Thats it. Just solid black capo. What more do you want? Or need, for that matter. If you are not interested in a partial-capo, then go for the full one! It doesn't cost much more and it has all the same features and quality as this one does! I myself have had the full one for half a year and use it just about every day, with no problems whatsoever. Overall, I recommend you buy this product!

  • Not a bad capo at all

    As reviewed by Miranda on 4/16/2011

    First of all it's small because of its design, which makes it really easy to take it places. However I think I like the capos with the handle better. This one has a great sound, no string buzzing or anything but it does take significantly longer to take on and off then a handled capo would. But really that's the only con, otherwise a great capo for anyone in need of one.
