It looks bigger in the picture?! Haha! Seriously though, I pulled out the CP-09 this week because I thought it looked like a big hunk of capo (it looks bulky, right?), so I needed to find out what its all about.

D’Addario talks about geometry, micro-adjustments, and pressure but to be honest what really matters is the fact that it’s easy to squeeze and easy to use, it’s very intuitive. It’s very lightweight, and considering its size it’s completely unobtrusive. Tuning is nailed on standard guitar with regular strings - I haven’t tried anything heavier yet.

Capo Bar Length (part that covers strings) - 52mm

Designed in conjunction with Ned Steinberger, the Planet Waves CP-09 Tri-Action Capo employs easy-to-operate tri-action geometry. The NS Tri-Action Capo from Planet Waves assures buzz-free, in- tune performance at any fret.

Not just the average capo on the market, Planet Waves' Tri-Action Capo's patent pending tri-action geometry reduces the force required to open and close the capo and evenly applies tension regardless of guitar neck profile. Combining the micrometer tension adjustment and direct horizontal pressure, the Tri-Action capo virtually eliminates pulling the strings side to side and the need to retune during use. Additionally, the lightweight aluminum construction adds negligible weight to the neck of the instrument. Available in black and silver, the NS Tri-Action Capo is for 6-string acoustic and electric guitars with radiused fret boards. It also features a built-in pick holder for every guitarist's convenience. Available in both black and silver.

Design-mastermind Ned Steinberger affirms: 'The die-cast aluminum Tri-Action capo is a fine precision tool: strong, light, and easy to use, with adjustable spring tension for precise intonation.'

'Pushing the envelope is status quo for Planet Waves,' says Rob Cunningham, Planet Waves Product Specialist. 'Releasing products that solve common problems is our specialty, and the new Tri-Action Capo is no different. Its ability to eliminate string pulling to keep players in tune at every fret makes music-making a breeze.'

 

 

D’Addario is the world’s largest strings manufacturer, supplying strings globally for almost any stringed instrument (we’ve got them all!) including electric & acoustic guitar, bass, classical guitar, mandolin, banjo, violin, double bass… the list goes on!

D’Addario-engineered NY Steel is one of the brand’s most recent innovations providing unparalleled strength and longevity spanning across the strings range from Nickel Bronze, NYXL, XS, and even folk instrument strings.

D’Addario NYXL is the heady combination of NY Steel and reformulated nickel-plated steel wrap wire making this the best range of electric guitar strings available.

D’Addario’s original treated strings range for longevity was EXP which has now been superseded by XT. This range of electric, acoustic and classical guitar, bass, banjo, and mandolin strings features a thin, hydrophobic coating protecting every string in the set from corrosion. We stock single strings from this range too!

The latest addition to D’Addario’s X-Series acoustic and electric guitar strings range is the XS. This proprietary coating and treatment on all strings in the set makes them arguably the most advanced guitar strings on the planet. Utilising the strength of NY Steel and reformulated nickel-steel wrap wire (or phosphor bronze for acoustic) which is completely coated means these strings can last longer, play harder, and sound better for longer than any other guitar strings.

Best capo I've ever had

Because these are tension adjustable they can work well on acoustic and electric. no tuning issues. easy and convenient to get on and off. I'm a teacher and quite a few of my students liked it as well and bought their own.
