Our Teflon Fretpad’s material attributes are the complete opposite of rubber. While rubber is soft and binding, Teflon is hard and slippery. These characteristics, produce a noticeably more vibrant tone and allow the strings to bend and slide beneath the capo, which help to keep your guitar in tune. This makes teflon act like a finger instead of a nut. Comes in both standard tension and high tension (2mm thicker) configurations. Teflon Standard Tension Fretpads, work with all 6-strings, while High Tension Fretpads are designed to handle Mandolins, Ukuleles & thin necked guitars. * Not to be used with 12-strings or Baritone guitars.
Our Rubber Fretpads are harder than our OctaveTouch fretpads but are still soft enough to bind the strings to the fret, keeping them from moving beneath the capo. This makes them act like a nut. Traditional capos have always used rubber due to its conforming characteristics. Every Thalia Capo comes with a set of our Standard & High Tension Rubber Fretpads.
