G7th has announced a new solution for 12 string capos, the patent-pending Compensated String Pad.
After two years of development work, the new product works with the Newport and Heritage capo models.
“So far, the only solution capo manufacturers have devised is to apply extreme tension to all 12 strings, inevitably pulling most of them out of tune,” said G7th.
“Now, G7th’s unique ridged design allows for the heavy and octave strings to be fretted at the same time and with the same pressure, eliminating the need for excessive tension.”
Using the flip-lever and adjustment knob of the Newport range, the updated 12-string model allows for quick and easy adjustments, meaning you can dial the exact tension you require without the need for extreme retuning.
Coupling the Compensated String Pad with G7th’s ART (Adaptive Radius Technology), the Heritage capo for 12 strings continues to provide maximum tuning stability with the minimum tension required over all 12 strings.
Both the Newport and Heritage 12 string capos are available online now and will be in stores soon.
