More time playing, less time tuning
Performance Original Capo

The award-winning Performance Original capo for 5 string banjos, tenor banjos and smaller fretted instruments with a tighter fingerboard radius, such as the Nechville (7"-12") compound radius banjos. It features our Unique Tension ControlTM - the fast squeeze-on, squeeze-off action gives you complete and intuitive control over the pressure placed on your strings, meaning significantly improved tuning stability compared to nearly all other capos.

Previously available for steel six-string acoustic, electric and hybrid nylon guitars, but now discontinued and succeeded by the Performance 3 with ART®.
