These rubber fretpads convert any 200 series Thalia Capo into a Partial Capo. When applied from the treble side of the neck, these fretpads will cover strings 2-3-4 and when applied from the bass side of the neck these fretpads will cover strings 3-4-5; you can also position to cover 1-2-3 or 4-5-6. This set includes 6 different partials with the following radii: 7.25", 9.5", 10", 12", 15" & 16".
These fretpads only fit our 200 series capos. Comes in a magnetic closure box with an instructional booklet. (FYI -- 14" & 20" partials are available separately as part of the 14" and 20" specialty kits)
This is my second Thalia capo. I've had my first for over a year now and I have to say it's a fantastic product.
I purchased this second capo after reading about partial capos on Thalia's website. I often play in open tunings so purchasing another capo along with the partial fretpad tuning kit seemed like a useful tool to me. Now I can play some of my favorite songs in DADGAD or DGDGBD without physically retuning my guitar strings from EADGBD. I just throw my original Thalia capo on the 1st fret and the newly purchased Thalia capo with the partial fret pad on the third fret either from the top or the bottom depending on the tuning I want. Playing with two capos at once, it's a game changer.
Now about the capo. I purchased the Indian Rosewood with black brushed chrome finish. It really looks terrific. It has a sophisticated and understated appearance. It's also a lot less likely to pick-up fingerprints than the polished chrome "mirror" finish.
The Thalia capo is a little heavier than other capos I've used. But heavy in a good way. It feels substantial, and high-quailty. One thing to note is that the lever that you push down to engage or move the capo has some strong tension to it. At first it may seen that your left hand isn't strong enough to comfortably press down the lever on the capo. But after using it daily your left hand thumb and forefinger strength builds up and you'll find that it becomes very easy to put the capo on, take it off, and move the capo up and down the fretboard.
But ultimately the product needs to work as promised. I have to say that I think that the capo does a superb job of keeping all of the the strings in tune when being applied to any fret on my guitar.
The capo arrived packaged nicely with a really nice plastic case that holds the capo and fret pads. It also came with a polishing cloth and a small drawstring bag for the capo.
I would highly recommend this product
Rubber | PARTIAL Rubber Tuning Kit (6-piece)
Great quality Fit snugly into the capo with ease
Really well made
Not tried yet but no reason to think this isn't perfect.
I love the partial capo piece. The only down side is that the acoustic guitar I have has an extremely thick neck and can't use it on that guitar. But it is of no fault to this. My guitar just has an habnormally thick neck
