Designed in conjunction with Ned Steinberger, the NS Artist Capo clamps to the front of the instrument, in order to avoid obstruction of the performer’s fretting hand while playing. It’s patented design is easy to open and close and applies even tension. With its micrometer tension adjustment dial, guitarists can fine-tune the tension of the capo. Designed to apply direct horizontal pressure, it virtually eliminates pulling strings out of tune. Its lightweight aluminum construction adds no noticeable weight to the neck of the instrument. It comes with an NS Micro Tuner mounting bracket, allowing the guitarist to add tuning capabilities to the capo, and it also includes a pick holder.
