Low profile, flip-lever guitar capo
Small, light and beautifully-formed - The G7th Newport is meticulously designed for your fretting hand, eyes and ears. The cunningly concealed flip lever design is perfect for heavy strings, high actions and 12-strings, with a knob for fine-tune tension adjustments while on the neck.
Protects your neck with wrap-around silicone rubber.
Safeguards your tone thanks to firm string pad material that reduces vibration damping.
Easy to use - fine tune your tension while on the neck.
Light weight and low profile design keeps the Newport capo out of the way of your fretting hand.
Get drop-D or DADGAD style sounds without the need for retuning using the Newport 3 & 5 String Partial Capos.
For 12-sting guitars, our exclusive patented Compensated String Pad uses carefully designed ridges in the string pad’s rubber. This allows you to fret all 12 strings at the same time and with the same tension by compensating for the different gauges of strings.
“Finally, this is THE ONE. A capo that has the massive strength to survive super-heavy strings, crazy tunings, and even string bending, and the precision to be able to perfectly tune the pressure to my needs. And yet it still looks so stealthy.” Jon Gomm, UK based acoustic solo artist/singer-songwriter/ virtuoso guitarist
What makes a G7th capo?
As fellow guitarists, we understand that a capo needs to not only do its job well - hold down the strings without buzzing – but as an important piece of gear in a guitarist’s toolkit it also needs to be tough and dependable.
What Makes a G7th capo different? All G7th capos share the following attributes:
Stay in tune! G7th capos are designed to work using the minimum tension needed to fret the strings. This means your guitar won’t be pulled out of tune by the excessive force required by many other capos. Less force also helps reduce the risk of accelerated fret wear old-fashioned capos can cause.
Protect your neck! With G7th, there is no metal to wood contact between the capo and the neck of the guitar – preventing dings. Also, no marks in soft lacquer due to over-application of tension.
Preserve your tone! The pad in contact with your strings is deliberately harder than on most other capos. This means less damping of your sound caused by fat, softer pads. You get more of the unaltered tone of your guitar.
