What I first noticed about the G7th Performance 3 Capo was its sleek look. I have used capos over the years. Some have been very bulky, do not provide even tension across the neck, buzz, or not provide the best tone when applied. This G7th Performance 3 Capo has seemed to find ways to solve these issues.
This capo is very easy to put on and take off — making it ideal when performing. It is applied by using a spring release switch to open it up and using your hand pressure to calm it down to make sure you have the proper tension. G7th uses a high-quality silicon rubber in the interior to protect your guitar’s finish. There are two silicon peaks on the inside bottom of the capo designed to fit up against the backside of the neck. This is to ensure even distribution of pressure across the fingerboard.
G7th has added a patent-pending technology to this Performance 3 Capo which they call Adaptive Radius Technology. This new technology allows for the string pad of the capo to adjust to match any guitar by “applying even pressure across all the strings,” which allows for stable tuning.
I found this capo very quick and easy to use. I was able to play without any buzz, and the capo was very easy to adjust and move up or down the neck.
The G7th Performance 3 Capo comes in three different colors — Silver, Satin Black, or 18kt Gold Plate.
