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.
A few weeks ago, I read “1971 - Never a Dull Moment: Rock’s Golden Year” by David Hepworth. In the book, Hepworth argues that 1971 was the most important year in rock history. According to the author, the rock landscape changed in those twelve months, with massive shifts at an industrial, social and cultural level. As a result, a huge number of monumental albums were released; The Stones’ “Sticky Fingers”, “Who’s Next” and “Led Zep IV” to name but a few. And, it was the year that a plethora of rock legends established their place in the pantheon of popular music.
In 1970, Derek and the Dominos released “Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs,” one of the landmark rock albums of all time. Arguably Eric Clapton’s definitive musical statement, “Layla” is also the record that made Slowhand synonymous with the Fender Stratocaster.But, while Clapton and Fender are synonymous today, his early sound, and some of his most famous recordings, were actually created using Gibson instruments. Today, we’re going to run through Eric Clapton’s Gibson years, and three of the Ted McCarty-and-co designed guitars that he staked his name with.
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.
I have 3 Thalia capos, really like how they perform and look. I wish it was easier to figure out which neck piece works best with my local custom Hoffman guitar, to get the max string hold.
Love my new phone case, worth every penny.
Over the many years of playing guitars I hav e owned many guitars and many, many more capos. Some people like shoes; I like capos. What can I say? I bought them for uniqueness. I bought them for some new-fangled gimmick. Sometimes, like a raven, I bought them for being pretty and shiny. All in all they were either just complete failures or at the very least like any other capo out there. How difficult and different can a capo be? Right? I was so very wrong. When I first saw the Thalia Capo, I was again struck by its simplicity and beauty and thought, “Well, here’s another pretty little thing." I thought it a little pricey at first but I was struck by its allure. I only glanced at the functionality of it and just thought it another gimmick. Like I said previously, I was so wrong. I pulled the trigger and bought what was soon to be my most favorite capo. Not only is it precisely made with such a finished look, it outplayed everything I owned. Its ease of use, the different and more ergonomic design, and the way it kept my strings in tune just knocked my socks off. Truly a masterpiece of craftsmanship and design. After using it now for several months I truly admire all the thought and engineering that went into its design and manufacture. It is a masterpiece which I thoroughly enjoy playing, as well ass, I love showing it off. Thank you Chris, Thalia, and Team.
Blue Abalone | Capo
Great capo, you just have to know the neck radius. You can get a set of radius gauges from Ebay or Stew Mac.
AAA Curly Hawaiian Koa & Gibson Pearl Logo with Les Paul Script Engraved | Phone Case
The quality and the design are great!
not only does it look classy it is compact and does what it is required to do it beats all those other capo contraptions
I really like the Capo. It is easy to use and workmanship is superb.
Also shout out to Gareth for being the best customer service ever.
I love the gold/ abelone capo. It really looks good. I'm not fond of the wood picks. They are a bit stiff, otherwise, they are nice.
The capo is well made and very nice looking. The price is high, but it will last forever.
The capo is easy to use, once you get used to handling it. Very convenient, and it looks great.
Another stunning had crafted phone case using the most beautiful woods on the planet. Keep it up.
All Thalia's products are perfects!
These work great. The key is the various inserts for various fingerboards. Since I have 18 fretted instruments this is a big deal. Here is pic of the custom peace sign capo on my custom built Martin Steve Howe MC-38 model.
Worth the money spent.
Currently I use a padded Franklin strap that cost $140. This one is so much better you cannot even compare. It's so soft, comfortable and durable. I cannot wait for the strap locks to come out to complete the look. Talk about upscale and beautiful. They really set the bar so high for guitar accessories. Nothing comes close.
Bought an Indian Rosewood w/ Gibson logo case and it is absolutely incredible. The mother of pearl is brilliant and radiant and the inlay has no gaps. Very impressed and look forward to more purchases in the future.
This is a beautiful piece and was a gift for my son. He LOVES it! And was excited to get it. Thank you!
Everything you want in a guitar strap is here in this product - absolutely gorgeous koa/cross inlay; superb craftsmanship; super comfortable ultra soft Italian leather; and fully adjustable with no hard/plastic/metal parts to deface your favorite instrument (shown here with my Parker Fly sporting - of course - a Thalia Capo).
All I can say is this strap defines the term "pride of ownership". Highly and heartily recommended.
Shame I had to send to the USA for it but it was worth the wait.Does what it says on the label and the different radii inserts make it and excellent product.
I have used capos before but the Thalia are the best Quilty I have ever used or owned I highly recommend them tp any guitar player
Great fit to my phone beautifully done I get lots of comments on my rosewood with 12 string guitar koa inlay. Only thing I see is the inlay maybe pulling away from rosewood a little, not very bad at this point. I still love my case. Great work.
I play my Taylor T5 for my church’s praise team and the “Cross” trussrod cover is just a nice touch to my guitar. I like it. I think it’s very pretty. Thank you, Thalia.
It's been years since I have worn a ring and I'm very picky about any jewelry.
I think this ring is really unique & cool!
I am giving it as an xmas gift.
Texas Lone Star | Capo
Beautifully crafted capo at a very reasonable price for such a quality product. I will buy again.
Got the Koa gibson les paul case. Looks great and not bulky at all. S pen is slightly hard to remove - the cutout could maybe be a bit larger, but overall it's a really great case. Looks classy.
Standard Shape | Rosewood Pick Tin
Thalia makes the best capo! Mix that with the great state on texas and you have a winner.
In spite of getting an apologetic email from Chris for a delay in processing, I received my phone case very quickly. It's so beautiful in person. The lovely photos on the site don't do it justice. It's a great gift for a guitar geek, or anyone who has an appreciation for figured woods.
Since my first public performance 61 years ago at boy scout camp (campfire!) on a ukulele, graduating quickly to 6- and 12-string guitar, I've owned dozens of capos, but these Thalia capos are by far the best. The choice of radius ensures a perfect fit. The solid heft iis anti-flimsy without adding noticeable weight. They are easily moved up and down the fretboard. And the blue abalone adds just a wee bit of sparkle/glam without being gaudy. I have one in each of my guitar cases.
