The G7th Performance capo is a completely new approach to capo design. It has none of the disadvantages of conventional capos, but instead offers enhanced performance and is simple to use. Not only that, it looks and feels great!
World's finest capo? You decide! The G7th capo uses a patented system that allows you to exert JUST THE RIGHT AMOUNT of pressure on the neck of your guitar, allowing you to achieve the desired key change, but not making your guitar go out of tune! This is truly a revolutionary design that looks, feels, and performs better than anything else on the market.
The wrap spring clutch consists of just three elements: a fixed hub, a moving hub, and a spring whose inside diameter is just slightly smaller than the outside diameter of the two hubs. When the spring is forced over the two hubs, attempting to rotate in the direction which opens the capo wraps it down tightly on the hubs, positively engaging them.
Rotation in the other direction, to tighten the capo onto the strings, is not restricted. To release the capo, the control tang is moved in the direction to unwind the spring, thus releasing the clutch.
The beauty of this type of clutch for this application is that it can be adjusted in tiny increments.
The clutch mechanism is a modified tried-and-tested design used in printers and copiers to provide a simple decoupling and overrun device.
