SYMBIOTIC GUITAR CAPO


This guitar capo has a unique design that allows for quick and easy placement or removal on any guitar neck. The trigger-style “clamp” design allows for the musician to easily take the capo on and off, while the knob on top allows for further adjustments to the pressure put on the strings. This eliminates problems with different size necks and strings getting out of tune with too much pressure on them. The capo is ergonomically designed to be comfortable to the musician’s hands, with minimal force required to pull it back. Additionally, the capo comes in a variety of anodized aluminium finishes to complement your particular guitar.


RESEARCH


Capo1
Clamp-style capos can quickly be added to and removed from the fretboard, however they apply a significant amount of pressure,
which can damage certain guitar necks and make strings go out of
tune. They can also be difficult to use for users who don’t have very much grip strength.
Screw-style capos can be adjusted for different amounts of pressure, making them much more ideal for users with lower grip strength, and for protecting your guitar, however they take much longer to apply. Can these two common capo designs be combined?
