D’Addario’s Planet Waves division has long offered a variety of types of capos. The NS Artist Capo is the company’s latest collaboration with famed instrument designer Ned Steinberger. Made of aircraft-grade aluminum, the NS Artist Capo features an adjustable spring-loaded design that’s easy to install on the guitar. Adjustable tension means that the capo can be fine-tuned to a particular neck shape, string-gauge, or action-height, resulting in a high degree of tuning stability. The NS Artist Capo includes a bracket for installation of D’Addario’s NS Mini tuner (sold separately) as well as a built-in pick holder, and the rubber pad is replaceable.
SPECS: Spring-loaded aluminum capo. $19.95 street. daddario.com.
