To achieve a perfect fit, the Thalia Capo comes with multiple interchangable fretpads so that you can match the fretboard radius of your specific instrument. The following table lists common fretboard radii used by major manufacturer. If you do not find your specific brand and model below you can Google your guitar make/model plus the words "fretboard radius"; if that doesn't work you can use the manual method which is described here
Please Note: 12-String & 8-String Guitars should use our High Tension OctaveTouch fretpads to get the best performance. Standard Tension and High Tension Rubber fretpads are included with every capo. Our Teflon fretpads will likely not work on instruments with octave strings. size chart guide fret board

All Hawaiian Koa products made by Thalia come with our Hawaiian Koa Reforestation Commitment. $5 from the sale of each Capo or Phone Case goes directly towards planting and maintaining new Koa trees in Hawaii.
While all of the woods and shell on our site are sourced from ethical vendors who have sustainability policies in place, we want to go further. For Hawaiian Koa we are taking a more active position by directly sourcing our wood in Hawaii, ensuring chain of custody of the salvaged logs. These logs are then sliced into veneer per our specifications. Next, we are actively involved in the planting and maintaining of new royal koa trees in Hawaii on the same islands where our wood originates. This full circle approach ensures that we will be able to achieve our goal of being a significant participant in the reforestation of Hawaii while also producing 100 times more koa wood for the musical instrument industry than we consume over the next decade.
Cal Jam doesn’t get the same love as festivals like Monterey Pop or Woodstock. Maybe it’s because it doesn’t have the late ‘60s countercultural cred, happening a full five years after the summer of love reached its peak. Maybe it’s because it was staged to be filmed for television (as part of ABC’s legendary “In Concert” series). Why do I love California Jam so much? It is because it established the record for the largest concert sound system ever assembled? Was it because it featured the first ever appearance of the Good Year blimp at a music festival?
Guitar lessons eventually followed. But, classical guitar didn’t grab me in the same way that my own freeform compositions had. Firstly, I didn’t know any of the songs I was supposed to be learning. Secondly, it required the kind of co-ordination and finger dexterity that I was – at that time at least – far too impatient to master. “I read somewhere that there are these things you can use to hit the strings so you don’t have to use your fingers. I think they began with a P,” I once told my guitar teacher. “The thing that begins with a P is called practice,” he replied. He was right, of course, but that didn’t mean I wanted to hear it.
This week, to satisfy my yearning for live music, I’ve taken a deep dive into my record collection and rediscovered some live favourites. Given how much joy I’ve got out of these records, I thought I’d share them with you today. Putting together this list, I’ve tried to take the road less travelled. I didn’t want to put together a list of classic live albums that everyone already knows like the back of their hand. Instead, my three picks serve as alternatives to some of those classic albums, offering a new look at some legendary bands.
The Fab Four didn’t just revolutionize popular music; they changed the way we thought about musicians as personalities. The way they interacted with the press – their presence humour – ripped up the rulebook and set a precedent for generations of musicians to come. Needless to say, Messrs Lennon, McCartney, Harrison and Starr’s correspondences with reporters have resulted in many a memorable quip over the years. And for this post, I thought it’d be fun to collect some of the best quotes – everything from zingers to profound words of wisdom – uttered by the Beatles.
Thalia Guitar Polishing Cloth
I absolutely love my Thalia capo. It is very easy to see that a ton of thought has gone into the performance of these finely crafted devices. The machining and inlays are flawless, just beautiful craftsmanship.
I didn't really want to mess with my Les Paul, but when I saw this moon phase truss rod cover from Thalia, I didn't even think twice. It's so beautiful, and such a complement to the guitar, and a way to customize it without taking away from the beauty and lines of the guitar. Great job on this!
Thaila is the best in materials for guitarist no doubt about it….
What a beautiful capo, almost to the point I do not want to use it. Excellent packaging and extras included. Adds a unique look to my Acoustic. I cannot wait for my next order from here.
Very nice. Keeps in time!
I loved the tungsten carbide ring and beautiful color! Unfortunately I bought a size just a little too large and it slipped off my finger and I lost it, so Now I have to buy a new one...
I've been using my new Thalia capo for about a month now. It's a high quality piece of equipment. It keeps my strings in tune when using it. The only drawback, and it's a slight one, is that the gap is so big I have to put it in my pocket rather than attach it to the headstock of my Takamine. Maybe someone has an answer for that. Since I played bass for many years I'm really just learning to use a capo correctly on my acoustic. I really like how a capoed acoustic sounds.
I just opened my package from Thalia and got my beautiful hawaiian curly wood capo. It came with 7 standard as well as 7 high tension fretpads. I love the way this looks on my guitar. Thanks Thalia.

The Thalia capo exceeded my expectations. It's light because it's made of magnesium and the green angel wing complements my green guitar. Very pleased with this purchase.
Excellent quality for b stock strap!
It's perfect. And it's pretty. Anyone who's ever used this capo would know what it's worth. I'm Korean, but I'm not good at English, so if I were to describe it in Korean, I'd say 지렸다.
very cool T-shirt. Fits great!
I have two Harmony acoustics - one from 1946, the other from 1958. Now each has its own Thalia capo.
The Fretboards are each 14" radius, but the 1948 has a thick neck with no
truss rod, so that capo got the thick radius insert. The 1958 got the low-profile
insert. I put a little drop of super glue on the ends of the inserts to keep them
from popping out. It's not a big problem, it's only happened a couple of times,
but why not be extra careful...?
love, Love, LOVE these capos...!!!
“We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.”
- George Bernard Shaw – Dublin, Ireland (1856-1950)
Couldn’t find a capo that didn’t cause strings to buzz on occasion. Now I have. Wow, the most beautiful capo is the most functional too!
