Capos are not often seen in experimental guitar situations, but many Avant-guitarists, myself included, find themselves in more traditional, song oriented situations where a capo comes in handy, whether for matching a singer/songwriter’s chord voicings or maximizing open string usage. Thus when I came across (spoiler alert) the ultimate capo, I felt the need to share.
D’Addario distributes their accessories through their Planet Waves division. In an industry that sees its share of bad ideas coming to market, Planet Waves can be counted on to come up with almost exclusively good ideas. Their reasonably priced, tone-preserving American Standard cables are just one example. Three new products continue this tradition of coming up with accessories players actually use—moreover might really need. These include two headstock-mounted tuners and a capo.
