Choosing A Capo
Performance, Nashville or newport... which capo is best for you? Ultimately it's down to personal preference, as each model has its strengths.
If you can, we recommend that you pay a visit to your local music store and try them out – but if that's not possible, or you need a little more help, here's a chart to help you compare them:
* For 6-string guitar. These models hold down some – but not all – of the strings, creating an effect similar to using a drop tuning
† Weight given for 6-string Performance Capo. 12-String and Classical models weigh 80g / 2.8oz
