Overview

The G7th Classical Performance Guitar Capo is designed for enhanced performance specifically for nylon string classical guitars, and it's simple to use. Not only that, it looks and feels great! Push the lever to release the arms. The G7th Capo fits snugly behind the fret. Squeeze to tighten it from above or below. Simply press the lever to release the capo.

The wrap spring clutch consists of just 3 elements: a fixed hub, a moving hub, and a spring whose inside diameter is just slightly smaller than the outside diameter of the 2 hubs. When the spring is forced over the 2 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 G7th 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 use in a guitar capo is that it can be adjusted in tiny increments. The clutch mechanism is a modified tried-and-tested design used in printers and copiers to provide a simple decoupling and overrun device.

I just bought the new G7 Capo for my guitar, and I find it very easy to use: easy to take off, easy to put on. Not only that, but I feel confident using it on my D41, that it is not going to damage it. Also, it holds the strings down evenly and sounds great! Also, it looks fantastic, very well designed.

A very well constructed capo made out of quality metal and very good rubber i have used this capo for six months and have found no wear at all on either the string or neck rubber nor the clamping components. it locks and holds the locked position very strongly but in my particular case ( i have a buzz free c5 cordoba) in any position adding the capo creates open string buzz on at least 2 strings. If i squeeze it with my hand while plucking an open string the buzz goes away so it is my theory that due to the naturally higher action of a classical guitar along with the softness of the rubber of the neck side (which has a fair amount of give) the capo is incapable of the clamping force required to properly seat the strings. also i noticed none of the other reviewers specifically mention they were using a classical guitar

Works perfectly

By Norman Vilmer

from Dallas, TX

I tried the Gth Nashville first, but the spring was too strong and with light gauge string on a Schecter C-1+ electric six string, the pitch was pulled up about 20 cents. The G7th Performance Capo works great. Easy to use, stays in place, no tuning problems, no buzz, just works.

Easier & less tune issues than others

By Chris Byrd

from The Colony, TX

I had one of this type of capo for my steel string acoustic. I wanted one for my classical. When I went to the local Guitar Centers, all they had was the G7th Nashville Classical Capo. I tried that, but I kept having to strain to get it on, & it kept pulling my nylon strings out of tune. So I ordered this one I had really wanted online. When I tried it, it was just as great as my other one had been. Much more relaxing to get it on (you simply gently squeeze until e pressure is right) & because the tightening on the strings is more gradual, it seems to not pull it out of tune as much. Although a little heavier than other capos, it isn't noticeable while playing. No string buzzing either. Well worth the price!

Great...just great...

By Derrick

from Redlands, CA

I went in today and got the G7th Nashville and was utterly disappointed. I don't know if it was just my .13 strings or my action or what, but it wasn't holding down well on the first fret. But I went back in to get something stronger and the cashier showed me this little number. I was skeptical, but I took it home and as soon as I slapped it on, BOOM, butter. I'm hooked. There's not much left to say except I recommend at least trying this thing out.

Best Capo I've Used

By Aaron

from Istanbul, Turkey

I'm a worship leader at a church and youth group, and use my capo as much as can be. I've tried planet waves capos (that broke), kyser capos, and several others, and this wins. Stays in tune, perfect grasp on the neck, and I can bend without it moving (unlike many others). Long story short: If you're looking for a fantastic capo to work as hard as you do, get the G7th Performance.

not worth it...

By Fred

from PSL, Florida

I just returned this capo and was very dissapointed. I don't know how this is working for other people, but I did not like the way it held the strings. On my taylor 314ce there was alot of buzz, and after squeezing the life out of it, it did not work well. So I went with the SHUBB for half the price!! and it works much better. Even when I put it on the 8th fret it sounds bright and clear just the way a capo should work. I promise you, SHUBB DELUXE IS A GREAT BUY!!!

Wonderful Capo

By Michael Holland

from Hilliard, Fl

I just brought the G7th Classical Performance Guitar Capo a few days ago for my bass guitar. Yes I know a bassest should not have a capo, but I play a lot of chords and do not have the pinky length. Back to topic, this was the best investment I have made. When using this capo my pitch and tone was beautiful. Don't worry about if this has the strength behide it or not because it does, it never made my BASS guitar strings buzz. The only downfall of this was, it is a little slow to switch between frets. Other then that, all should buy this capo.

Great Capo- worth the extra $

By Mark

from Kissimmee Florida

I've been using the G7 about 2 months now and it works great! One handed, easy on, easy off, doesn't pull the strings, holds them evenly, and doesn't risk damage to your guitars finish (my biggest concern) What more could you ask from a capo? A little pricier than some, but a high quality piece of equipment that even looks cool!

G 7th Classical Capo - Great device design and function

By David Powell

from Atlanta, GA

This is a very easy and fast variable pressure capo. The only downsides I see are weight (heavier than most others) and price. It is the only capo I've found that is specifically made for a classical fretboard. The operational and functional design is clean and simple compared to other mechanisms.
