Come, let us sing for joy to the LORD; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation. -Psalm 95:1
We made a name for ourselves as the greatest guitar capo company on earth. A capo is a clamp that a guitar player place on the neck of the guitar to change its key. Guitar players use them for different reasons. Some use them to get new voicings of chords that would be impossible to play any other way, others use them so that they can play familiar chords in a different key to match theirs or a singers vocal range.
The number one reason that guitar players love our capos is that we designed them to solve the single biggest problem that guitar players had with capos: tuning. Other capos require you to retune when you place the capo on the neck. But the Thalia Capo is different. We have patented technology that allows the player to swap out a part so that they can perfectly match the curvature of their specific guitar's fingerboard. This results in the a simply superior capo experience. And of course, our capos are aesthetically more appealing that any other capo too.
Tips for picking the perfect capo as a gift.
Many players like to match the color or the capo to the color of the tuning pegs that are found on the headstock of their gutiars. Tuning pegs are usually either gold or silver. However, many players like the capo to be black so that it blends into the fingerboard of their guitar. The next part is the inlay. We offer a range of wood and shell inlays. Some people like to match the inlays found on their guitars. So if they have abalone inlay then a similar abalone shell inlay would be a great choice. We also inlay our capos with inlays that mimic the fretmarkers (the dots of inlays) in the fingerboards of their guitars. For example, we sell a complete line of capos with all of the classic fretmarkers found on Gibson, Martin, Guild and Taylor guitars.

What guitar players are saying about our capos:
What you need to know if you want to give picks:
First, not all guitar players use flat picks. The vast majority do, but fingerstyle players do not. An easy way to determine this is to look near their guitar or in the case to see what they are currently using. Pay attention to the thickness of the pick which will be indicated in mm and the shape. Most guitar players use standard shaped picks. If you are not sure what they use, your best bet is to give them a sampler. We have two types of samplers: Shape Samplers and Exotic Wood Samplers. Our Sampler has 4 different pick shapes and 2 different thicknesses. Most guitar players will love to experiment with the various shapes and so this is a great choice. If you know that they play with a standard shaped pick, then we would recommend trying one of our exotic wood samplers. The sample packs come with 4 different species of wood picks in 2 different thicknesses. Because wood has different hardness levels, each of the different species will sound different to the recipient. So these are a great way to go if you have a player who uses standard shaped picks.
What guitar players are saying about our picks:
"My first purchase from Thalia was a capo. It was gorgeous and blew away anything else I considered. The capo fit both my electric and acoustic guitar without any problems. The capo came with one of Thalia's wood picks. I loved the rich warm sound it produced and the overall feel compared to my plastic picks. I was so impressed that I ordered the Bubinga Tree of Life Pick Tin for myself, and a set of rosewood picks for both of my sons."
What you need to know when giving a strap:
Our straps will fit any guitar, however to achieve a perfect fit we offer two different tail hole options: Standard and Oversized. Standard holes will work on all guitars, however if your guitar player has an acoustic/electric guitar with an end-pin pickup jack, then we offer a tail piece with larger holes so that it will better fit their guitar. How to tell if their guitar has one of these jacks? If you look at their guitar and search for the endpin. This would be at the very bottom of the guitar. If the button has a hole going through it so that you can plug an instrument cable into it, then choose our Oversized Hole option. If it doesn't have a hole going through it then you can choose standard. If you are just not sure, then choose standard.
This is the absolutely the best way to "pimp" your guitar without breaking the bank. For $20 you can give a gift that will stay on your guitar players guitar forever and bring a smile to their face whenever they look at the beautiful craftsmanship and think of you!
What you need to know if you want to give a truss rod cover:
The first thing is whether their guitar has one. While most guitars do have them there are some notable exceptions. For example, Fender and Martin guitars do not have truss rod covers. But if they have a Taylor, Gibson, Epiphone, Gretch, PRS, Guild and many other brands then they do. We have a template guide that you can find here that will help you determine the one needed. Simply print out the template and match the shape to the one found on their guitar.
What guitar players are saying about our truss rod covers:
"First off, I just wanted to say that the good people at Thalia are a class act!! I can’t say enough about them and their service!! I ordered two truss rod covers for my Taylor guitars and was blown away when I received them. They are gorgeous!! They fit perfectly and in my opinion they enhance the look of my guitars. I ordered one solid wood in black ebony and one abalone on black ebony. Coupled with my matching Thalia abalone capo, its jaw dropping! I've since picked up a new Taylor GS Mini Koa and am awaiting the arrival of my 3rd truss rod cover. See for yourself, you will be blown away!!!!"

"After using this case for a good bit after my purchase, this one definitely holds up for someone pretty rough on them. I wouldn’t want to take it out in the rain for fear of ruining the wood, which I’m sure is treated! It’s just a great overall case that looks amazing and fits the phone perfectly! Kudos to you guys for teaming up with Gibson on this. The inlay quality is amazing in person. The pictures do it some justice, but the product itself is flawless!"
