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.
Leo Kottke is a fingerstyle institution, and an inspiration to guitarists across the globe. His unique blend of folk, blues and jazz and his distinctive syncopated, polyphonic melodies have earned him accolades and followers galore. And, his battles with adversity – he’s overcome partial hearing loss and a near career-ending bout with tendonitis – are testament to his dedication to his craft.
We’re living in a great time for acoustic music. Fingerstyle guitar is thriving, and outlets like YouTube give exposure to new guitarists on a regular basis. But, this wasn’t always the case. In the ‘80s, when synths and electronic sounds reigned supreme, some thought the humble hollow-bodied six-string would go the way of the dinosaur.
Bought this as a Christmas gift for my daughter. I’m sure she will love it as she always says mine is the best capo she has used!
This grips the strings better than any capo I have used. Partials usually cause string buzzing by some vendors, but this one has never failed to make things sound clear and crisp. 10 stars
Very well made capo - bought as a gift for a friend and he was blown away by the quality. As usual the mechanics of the capo are superior to any other I've tried.
Both capos I purchased are Christmas gifts so have not been out of their packing yet. My grandson and I will review them after Christmas
I ordered the capo with Koa wood. I make things using Koa and love the wood species. This capo is a very well engineered piece of equipment that does what it is advertised to do in a very elegant way. The variety of inserts made to fit just about any neck radius are, for me, a big deal. I should have bought 2. I also bought rosewood picks and a great phone case. The picks are worth a try. They come with an abrasive pad to touch up the edges. Bottom line: you get what you pay for. Very satisfied here.
After Christmas I will be able to give you a honest review...
I recently had my pinch pad come off and get lost on my capo. I sent and email and one was in the mail that day! Love the product, love being a Thalia Artist and love their prompt customer service every time I need them!!
This is a very nice ring. Great price too. Shipping was quick and it arrived when it was supposed to. I don’t like a lot of ‘bling’. This is a perfect style for me. I bought the Koa ring a couple of months ago. Thalia does a nice job!
Awesome Capo, very beautifully crafted!!!
I was impressed by the Texas Flag. I was much more impressed after I received the Thalia Designed piece of Art I received. I own 6 Thalia Capos. The Texas Flag is definitely my favorite piece of Art.
This is the best capo I have ever owned, love the picks too
I asked for a spare part and followed the procedure. Smooth and free. Nice guys.
Awesome looking and functions great! I get a lot of questions and compliments when out playing. Very well made functional piece of art!

This ring looks great! The fit is perfect, and the Tungsten Carbide allows me to ware the ring all the time, as other metals have an adverse affect. The inlay is beautiful too.
I saw a web add for your capo and checked it out.
They were pricy but when the special of the week came up (Blue Abalone w/Black Chrome) I decided to order. The packaging is very classy, but when I opened it and held the capo, I was taken back on how massive it is. Located the #15 standard tension fretpad for my Taylor 812ce and very easily swapped it out. Placed the capo on my guitar and was thoroughly impressed with it. What completely blew me away, was positioning the capo dead center between frets. There was no string buss and perfectly in tune!!
This is one of the best music related products I have ever purchased.
I will encourage my all my picking friends to dump their capos and get a Thalia!
Works great for my 12 string Takamine and keeps it in tune
I had placed the order for a case for iPhone 11pro first but I received iPhone 11 cover and then thalia agreed to send me the one I needed. But unfortunately I never received it.
I ordered a black guitar strap with a Bee inlay The strap is just the most gorgeous soft leather and the wood inlay sets it off so well The quality is top class and I couldn't be happier with it I also love the fact that I could choose an oversized end pin hole! I am happy to thoroughly recommend this gorgeous strap and would give six stars if I could!
I use these picks with my classical guitar and I love the sound. The picks are a little bit thicker than regular plastic picks and made of wood, so they really make a nice tone on the classical strings. They are also beautiful works of art that feel a little magical when I reach over for the Tree of Life and start strumming a magical tune of my own.
Bought it for my guitar teacher. He loved it! He let me sample them and it is nice to be able to try out the various strength to find which is best suited for me.
Blue Abalone | Capo
I bought this to accent my PRS SE A50E acoustic guitar. It perfectly matches the inlaid birds, the rosette, and the purfling. I'm glad I bought this.It makes a beautiful guitar even prettier.
I bought this as a gift and he loves it.
They're a Christmas gift. I can't give a review until they're opened and used.
Never been more happy with a capo. I hope to be apart of this brand for many years to come
This pinchpad helped me solve my problems. Really helpfull!!! Awesome!!
After receiving my Indian Rosewood Capo, I found it did not function properly on my Yamaha 12 string. After submitting an email inquiry into the OctaveTouch fretpads, I was sent a complimentary pad to try. With the OctaveTouch pad, the capo functions much better
This Texas Star capo looks amazing and will be the best capo you can own. Thalia continues to bring out great innovations with tremendous value. With a Thalia capo on your guitar, the only problem you will have is answering all the questions about where you got it.
It smells delicious! Craftsmanship is very good, proud to own a case made with such beautiful wood with a Les Paul carved into it.
Purchased from ON Canada came within 2 weeks.
THALIA in my opinion is one of the most innovative musical instrument related companies in years. They excite me with their can do attitude and the incredible products they have brought to the market, and the many new ones they are going to have, and I love their their sky is the limit inspiration to proved everything we all love and I can feel it my bones the success this company has in the palm of their hands and soon they will be recognized as THE GOLD STANDARD.
I have bought many things from them and I also invested in this company and I have never been more comfortable spending my money, so I guess if you got this far you can tell I LOVE THIS COMPANY and all its great toys for us boys and girls. :O)
I have several I will post pictures of soon...
I bought the capo for a 12 string. Somewhat different to get ised to using but works great with the high tension octave touch pads. Would buy again.
This is my second purchase of a Koa Thalia capo. I like the way they look and operate. I placed my order and with in a few days it was delivered. The only problem I had was making a choice from so many options. I like dealing with smaller companies because of better service, and they do have great personal service.
