"Such a beautiful design and so easy to move it up and down the neck. Great product!" - Alan Gilbert
"I'm not only satisfied, I'm really impressed every time I use it. I'm looking forward to my next Thalia Capo!" - John Street
We have a variety of exotic wood and shell capos perfect or any and every guitar.
I play lots of different guitar. 7.25, 9.5,12 radii. I’m extremely sensitive to pitch and when I put a capo on, the slightly sharp tuning kills me. I tried the capos you can adjust tension for and they always got so floppy. Thalia changed everything. I just set the pad for the guitar I’m using a capo on that gig. Even it I had to swap it real fast, would be no issue. Great product and the crimson fractal design is beautiful. Not heavy, but feels quality. I’ll never use another capo
As soon as I opened my first package and felt this capo, I knew how well made it was ; so much so that I have bought 3 more !!! Will never use another capo again, my favorite has to be mother of pearl capo; it’s beautiful !
With these new Koa truss rod cap and Eben/Koa bridge pins, my GS mini looks cuter than ever !
The Thalia capo is now my favorite one by far. Whether you place it from above or below, there is no need to adjust anythings. This one is better, prettier and more accurate than my own fingers. All my guitarist friends want one ! Good investment.

Having tried other capos in the past, I've found the Thalia ones work best for me, while they may be a little on the chunky side (To show off the designs, bigger is better), they are still easy to use and don't get in the way. The choice of inserts allow you to chose the best fit for the guitar, once you've matched insert to guitar, it's a simple case fitting the capo and playing, no messing around trying to get the best fit, eliminate buzz or retune. The only downside is I've ended up with three Thalia's to cover my 6, 12 and 8 string baritone rather than constantly swapping insert, but the advantage is you get to choose different designs to go with the different guitars (Left to Right in the image are the Dragon and Paua Heart Abalone and Dark side of the Pearl)
If you have more than one guitar—and particularly if they have different neck radii—there's a strong argument beyond GAS (gear acquisition syndrome for those who don't suffer) for more than one Thalia capo. And if one of those guitars happens to be a Gibson or a Taylor, then a fret marker matching capo (when available) is tempting; not only do you match the fretboard radius without having to switch out the pads, you match the guitar. A little like finding the perfect strap is a much about look as function. As I have mentioned in other reviews, I strongly recommend the Octave Touch pads, as they seem to provide the best tuning no matter where on the fretboard you capo.
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
