Tradition and Innovation in Harmony
Heritage Capo

The Heritage is a traditional yoke-style capo made from hand-polished stainless steel and features our patented Adaptive Radius TechnologyTM (ART®) string pad.

With force exerted from the centre of the guitar neck, the ART® string pad can perfectly distribute the pressure over all six strings by adapting to match the radius of the fingerboard.

Every Heritage comes with a leather pouch, polishing cloth and gift box. Available in standard and wide widths for guitar and banjo, and for 12 string guitars.

"The longer I have the Heritage and the more I play with it, the more I love it. Workmanship, design, and ART® aside, it SOUNDS GREAT!
No matter where I place it, it replicates the dry woody bark that my Rockbridge Smeck has uncapoed."

A traditional yoke-style guitar capo that you can store behind the nut on your instrument between songs, designed to look subtle yet beautiful when on your guitar. Popular because the force is exerted from the centre of the neck for excellent pressure distribution, and its low profile shape.

Breakthrough functionality

Groundbreaking ART®


The Adaptive Radius TechnologyTM system within the top bar of Heritage 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 the maximum tuning stability with the minimum possible tension.
