Meet the new Performance 3 capo

The Performance 3 is the culmination of years of designing, tweaking, and improving - but most importantly, listening to guitarists and their views on what a capo SHOULD do. Now, coupling our Unique Tension ControlTM system with the groundbreaking ART® string pad mechanism gives a near-perfect capo experience.

Perfect for virtually all* steel 6 string acoustic, electric or hybrid nylon string guitars.

* depending on set up, string gauge and action height. For high actions or heavy strings, we recommend either a Heritage capo or Newport capo.

"The ART® system is a huge advance in capo design; it allows for buzz-free capoing and stable tuning on every guitar in my collection."

Design and features

Adaptive Radius Technology

What is ART®?

Adaptive Radius TechnologyTM

The ART® system within the top bar of the Performance 3 capos mechanically adapts to the true curvature over your strings and fretboard, exerting completely even pressure across all the strings - setting a new standard of in-tune, buzz-free use. It gives you maximum tuning stability with the minimum possible tension in EVERY position, on ANY guitar neck.
