D'Addario (formerly Planet Waves) is pleased to announce the next evolution in capo design, the new Dual-Action Capo. D'Addario (formerly Planet Waves) teamed up with the famed Ned Steinberger in designing the new capo. Together, they have created a capo that eliminates side-pull, thus keeping strings in tune, and exerts direct evenly balanced pressure on the strings. A tactile micrometer tension control allows for adjustable clamping pressure, while compound action reduces the force necessary to open and close the capo. The result is quick and easy, in-tune performance at each fret. What's more, the aircraft quality aluminum construction adds virtually no weight to the neck while in use. All of this in a quick and easy, one handed operation.
