I’ve admired the Thalia capo for a few years, both in its design and especially its great looks. Well after 37 years on my 1982 Guild, I broke down and bought my favorite guitar, a new solid body Taylor. So I thought, if I’m going to buy one of the best guitars out there, I’m not going to use a $15 capo. So I bought the Thalia Hawaiian KOA wood capo... and I LOVE it!! It looks great on my Taylor, but even better, it works flawlessly. Easy on, easy of, smooth as ice. No string buzz, no hassles of any kind. I get as much interest in my capo as I do my new guitar. Keep up the good work, love your product.
My Thalia capo seems to work great. Minimal hassle and my tuning stays accurate up and down the neck. I saved some money on a B-stock model but the blemish is minor, and besides, it’s a capo. I’m probably bound to drop it at least a few times in the future. It comes with a lot of extra fretboard inserts and it seems to work well with the one that’s matched to my Taylor acoustic. I’m happy and it gets used a lot. I recommend you get one (or two) if you don’t already own a Thalia.
This time around I went with the abalone with the black metal finish, (my 1st Thalia capo was
the gold finish with green angel wings) and once again Thalia comes through in spades!
I like the weight of it and how if fits in my hand when applying it to my fretboard.
One thing that sets Thalia capos apart from the rest that I really like is the packaging it comes in. A study two tier plastic box. The bottom is for storing all of the inserts for the different fretboard ratios. The capo also comes with a drawstring bag that will help protect it from scratching its beautiful surface. Also included is one of Thalia's wooden picks. It was a bit strange at first but the more I played with it the more comfortable it was to play with it.
I have pleanty of guitars but I do believe I don't have enough capos and I look forward to collecting more in the future!
Love the capo, definitely a step up, both in function and looks from my old flamenco capo. I find the open/shut mechanism is really intuitive and makes it very easy to change frets/positions. I lead worship at my church using my eight-string Agile, and the capo fits clear to the seventh string, which makes playing piano parts (since our pianist is off to college [what does he think he's doing? Making a better life for himself?]) on the guitar significantly easier.
I ordered my Thalia Capo on a recommendation from a friend who was raving about his. I loved the variety of designs I saw on the website and was impressed with the many customizable options, although it made it quite hard to decide on which capo to order! I went with the Mother of Pearl 24K Gold Capo - and after receiving it only days later thanks to the quick shipping, I quickly realized that this puts any other capo to shame! From the excellent packaging and accessories to the capo itself, there’s no other capo that even comes close. The striking design combination of mother of pearl and 24k gold would be a major selling point on its own for me, but the interchangeable fretpads are such an amazing game-changer! I own and play everything from 12-string acoustics to various electrics to ukuleles, and I love the fact that I now have one capo that I could use for everything, with stable intonation for all of them. The build quality is excellent - It feels sturdy & strong, and built from high-quality materials. I have already used the capo numerous times, both in the studio and for live gigs, and my Thalia has performed well every time, on any instrument I placed it on. My intonation and tuning remained solid and reliable. Also, during gigs I found it very easy to move the capo in different positions quickly. I should point out that I did order a B-Stock capo, but I couldn't find anything that indicates that on the capo I received, since it looks and functions perfectly. Overall, I’m very happy with my Thalia capo, but I also feel sad for any other company that makes capos - because they just won’t be able to match the designs, customizations, functionality and versatility of the Thalia!
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
