Overview

The NS Artist Capo utilizes a patented trigger geometry reducing the force required to open and close the capo while applying even tension regardless of neck profile. Combined with the micrometer tension adjustment and direct horizontal pressure, the NS Artist Capo virtually eliminates pulling the strings side to side and the need to retune during use. Additionally, the trigger design and lightweight aluminum construction adds no obstruction or noticeable weight to the neck of the instrument. The NS Artist Capo includes an NS Mini/Micro Tuner mounting bracket, allowing you to add tuning capabilities to the capo.

Tuner sold separately.

Many of their groundbreaking models are the result of a productive joint effort between famed designer Ned Steinberger and Jim D'Addario. No matter what syle of capo you prefer, Planet Waves has a capo for you.

Perfect Form Follows Perfect Function

By Ronald Powers

from San Diego, CA

Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Artist Capo:

You don't appreciate the true value of a capo that's fast to use until you start playing songs that have one or more modulations. That's where this capo really shines, because it had all the adjustability you need to avoid sharping the notes, while still preventing buzzes. A simple twist of the micro-adjusting spring and the thing fits perfectly. At the same time it's easy on the hands to compress. The old style "Kaiser" type capos have two problems. One, they "clothes-pin" spring gets weak over time and when new are so hard to compress without the danger of them flying out of your hand. The Planet Waves capo is so easy to compress, yet grips tightly, but there is little chance of losing control of it. One downside is that the included pick holder is made of plastic and will break the first time you grap for a pick and brush against it instead. If the holder were made of aluminum (a change I would be willing to pay for) it wouldn't break and this product would be perfect; thus 4 stars instead of 5. I will get another just to have a spare and won't even consider any other capo regardless of cost.

Like the Planet Waves dual action capo better

By Mike Viles

from Bend, OR

Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Artist Capo:

This is a great capo. I like the spring tension adjustability. I also have both the Planet Waves dual action and tri action capos and I can adjust the dual action so that it won't pull the strings out of tune. The tri action is a little more finicky and the new artist is a little more finicky than the tri action. All of them are still better than a capo with fixed tension. I like the top lever action of the Artist capo the best but for minimal tuning issues the dual action capo works the best on my guitar. The tri action and artist capos may work better on guitars with a different neck shape than mine.

    Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Artist Capo:

    This is one of my favorite capo's, the other being the G7 Performance. I really appreciate the micrometer adjustment, I can set the EXACT tension necessary to maintain proper tuning and it is very fast and eeasy to move around the neck. Like the Kyser capo, it doesn't get in the way of fretting chords close to the capo, but unlike the Kyser, it doesn't throw the guitar out of tune. It also doesn't weaken over time (As in every couple of years) and require replacement.

    Overall, a great design and I highly recommend it for folks who are uncomfortable with the G7.

      Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Artist Capo:

      This is a nice capo. It's just a little finicky about grabbing all of the strings with the same tension, but you can work it into a good position easily. It gets the job done nicely.
