Tradition and innovation in harmony
For 12 string guitars, with our brand new Compensated String PadTM.*
Our flagship capo - this traditional yoke-style capo is made from hand-polished stainless steel with 18kt Gold Plate finish, fitted with ART® for maximum tuning stability with the minimum tension required, and a Compensated String PadTM which takes into account the different gauges between the bass and octave strings, compensating for them with ridges in the rubber over the fingerboard, meaning all 12 strings are fretted at the SAME TIME and under the SAME TENSION, so you won't pull any out of tune.
Heritage 12 string capos are available either in hand-polished Stainless Steel or 18kt Gold Plate and with a variety of engraving options. Every Heritage capo comes complete with a leather carrying pouch, polishing cloth and gift box.
*Max neck width of 55mm / 2 3/16"
Design & Features
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.
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.
Heritage capos feature a knurled tension adjustment knob for fine adjustments, a secure latching top bar that locks under tension, and a firm string pad material that safeguards your tone by reducing vibration damping.
Protect Your neck
Internal Silicone Pads
With non-reactive, protective silicone pads at every touchpoint, you can be sure that the finish on your instrument is safe when using a Heritage capo.
Perfect for 12 strings
Compensated String PadTM
Our patented Compensated String PadTM allows you to fret all 12 strings at the same time and with the same tension by compensating for the different gauges of strings using carefully designed ridges in the silicone string pad.
Personalise your capo
Available with several engraving options including custom text, and exquisite Acanthus Leaf designs on the curved sides and top bar of the capo.
