Big Changes to Packaging and What's Included with Every Capo!

April 11, 2017

The Thalia Capo's unique, patented design is a complete rethinking of the guitar capo. It differs from other trigger style capos because its trigger action is actually reversed, with its lever arm turned around by 180 degrees. This means that you can squeeze the capo with your fretting hand in its natural position on the neck. As a bonus, this new design makes it easy for you to slide the capo up and down the neck while playing, expanding your creative playing possibilities.  We have also gone to great lengths to design a capo that will not take your guitar out of tune.  Our interchangeable fretpads allow you to match your fretboard radius and our teflon-infused fretpads ensure that the capo doesn't pull your guitar out of tune.

 

Today, we are making some big changes to our packaging and the items included with every capo.  These changes will help us dramatically improve customer satisfaction and will allow us to more easily expand into retail. This change will no doubt delight some of our fans and possibly frustrate others, but rest assured we have thought long and hard about these changes and feel that they are necessary.  

Here are the changes that we are making:

1. Switch to All Rubber Fretpads included with Every Capo

Starting today, we will now include our high tension rubber XL fretpads along with our standard tension rubber fretpads with every capo. This will ensure that our capos will work perfectly on every guitar, ukulele and 12-string right out of the box without the the need to purchase our accessory XL rubber tuning kit.  This change also means that we are discontinuing the inclusion of our Teflon fretpads with every capo.   Don't worry!  Our Teflon fretpads are not going away, but instead will be available as an accessory. Additionally, we are now also offering high-tension teflon fretpads which are 2mm taller than our standard tension fretpads!  

Here is is the reason for this change:  

Many users need our higher tension XL rubber fretpads in order for the capo to work properly on their guitars; however most do not know this initially and so we must send them the higher tension fretpads after the fact to solve the issue.  This change will eliminate this issue and ensure that all users have a great experience right out of the box.  The downside to this change, is that a lot of people really do love the teflon and they will now have to buy it separately.  While we love the Teflon fretpad material, it has proved to be extremely polarizing.  People either violently love it or hate it.  We certainly hope that you give it a try, but we will no longer be including it in the box!

2.) Switch to New Retail Packaging

We are in the process of bringing on select dealers worldwide to extend our reach and availability.  As a result we have decided to unify our packaging so that the product you see in retail will look identical to the product that you buy from us direct.  So we have changed all of our packaging as of April 11 to this new retail ready format.  This change certainly improves the overall experience and gift readiness of our products.  We hope you like it!  With this change we are also making a change to the way we package our custom shop personalized capos.  Custom Shop capos will now come packaged in our celebrity gift box, which has two drawers and a specific slot for each of the fretpads.

Thank you for your continued support as we strive to deliver the best experience possible to you!

Thanks!
Chris, Thalia & Team

Capos have just arrived in UK and surprised that the packaging alone was worth the fee! The capos are beautiful and work well. I also received an unexpected wooden pick! I have never been fond of hard picks, but this one works so well and even enables me to play softly. Also, the wood makes it easier to keep hold of, no dropping picks in the middle of a song!! Great product chaps, I am smitten! I shall be showing it off wherever I go.

Bought a capo and the open tuning pack. On the upside this is the best capo I’ve ever used. Great pressure on strings and strings stay in tune nicely. On the down side your open tuning pack did not give me what I was looking for which was an open e string with capo at 2nd fret which gives you a drop d running but in e. Again on the up side you have so many extra rubber inserts and they come out so easily that I just took a knife and in no time carved out my drop d in e and a couple other timings. So now I will buy 2 more capos and just label the timings they work so well. So other than carving my own timings which your product makes possible I found this to be a fantastic capo. Would be nice if I could request particular configurations of the rubber from you guys. I always did the drop d in e with a regular capo at the second fret skipping the low e which made it unstable. This is sooo much better Great product keep it up. Ps loved the tone on the wood picks. Thanks. George

Chris, Thalia, and all the Team….

Having been in the recording industry for over 50 years, and needing something ‘special’ in the way of gifts for long time musician friends, I stumbled upon a discussion on the internet of a very small company offering not only a practical, well thought out approach to a product that has been around for ions…… but a product that was creatively beautiful and would be treasured by the receiver of the gift. Upon further consultation and discussion with one of your Team, I settled upon the finish, the inlay, and the additional accessories that I felt would definitely personalize the gift for each of my three friends. I want to share with you, that each of my three friends were thrilled with their individual capo gifts….. commenting on the exquisite attention to detail in the finished product…. but additionally and more importantly…. to the fact that your capos function EXACTLY as your business information says they should…. which is RARE in this day and age of products. Hurrah…. and hats off to your company’s endeavor to seek perfection… and achieve it.
