Symbology & Meaning

Dragons are mythical beasts with a combination of reptilian and serpentine traits, the Dragon appears in the legends of several cultures around the world.  Although the dragons of the East and the West have quite similar physical characteristics, their symbolic representations are drastically different and, in a way, indicate the cultural differences between these civilizations. The most notable difference between the Asian and European dragons is that while the European folklore has portrayed the dragons as evil, fearsome and malevolent creatures, the Asian cultures regard them as benevolent beings.  Ancient Chinese Dragons are ultimate symbols of cosmic Chi (energy). It is said to be the most potent symbol of good fortune in the Chinese pantheon of symbols.  

Metal Finish Options

This capo is offered in two variations of the same finish. We offer a brushed black chrome finish, in which the finish has been brushed to be more resilient to small scratches.  This gorgeous finish is similar to gunmetal and is prefered by on-stage performers who are looking for a finish that is not as reflective under bright lights.  We also offer a mirror black chrome which is a pristine mirror finish that changes color as light hits it and can go from very dark black chrome to almost chrome in appearance depending on how light reflects off it.  

 

Design Features & Technology

The Thalia Capo's unique, patented design means that you can squeeze the capo with your fretting hand in its natural position on the neck. We have also gone to great lengths to design a capo that will not take your guitar out of tune: this is done by offering interchangeable fretpads so that you can match the fretboard radius of your instrument. Check out the :30 overview video below for more details.


Included Accessories

Every capo comes with a microfiber cleaning/gig pouch along with our Standard Tension & our High Tension (formally XL) Rubber Fretpad Tuning kits, which each include 7 different fretpads designed to fit a range of instruments with the following radii: 0" for Classical, 7.25". 9.5", 10", 12", 15" & 16". (14 FRETPADS IN TOTAL) The High Tension Fretpads are 2mm taller than our standard tension fretpads, so these are needed for 12-string guitars, Ukuleles, Banjos and certain guitars with low profile necks.
