To assist the NHS during this pandemic crisis, we are proud to introduce the Gordon Giltrap "Heartsong" Performance 3 capo, named and designed after Gordon's most famous composition "Heartsong" and in aid of The University Hospitals Birmingham Charity, UK. 


From Nick Campling, G7th Capo Designer: "I have known Gordon for very nearly 50 years!
I first booked him to come and play at my school when I was a teenager running the school folk club.

We have kept in touch on and off over that time and, since I designed our first Performance capo, Gordon has used them when he plays.

He and I got our heads together to see what we could do to assist the NHS in this pandemic crisis, and I'm excited to introduce this Special Edition capo."

Gordon was awarded the MBE (Member of the Order of the British Empire) in the 2019 New Year's Honours for services to Music and Charity.


Fitted with our Adaptive Radius Technology, the Performance 3 string pad mechanism will actively adapt to match the curvature over the strings in EVERY position, on ANY guitar neck. This means the pressure is always evenly distributed over the fingerboard, giving unrivalled tuning stability.

The Unique Tension Control system found in all Performance series capos gives near-infinite adjustment AND an easy, one-handed action.

Inert silicone wrap around rubber and internal G7th design features eliminate deadening of tone and avoid dangerous metal to wood contact on your guitar neck.

Performance 3 is perfect for both acoustic and electric steel string guitars and comes complete with a Free Lifetime Warranty.
