This Ebony Inlay has been selected for its rich dark coloring and then dyed completely black with India Ink and finished with a matte fretboard oil. This is the same technique used by luthiers such as Martin and Taylor to make their fingerboards completely black. If you want a capo that matches your black ebony fretboard, then this is it!
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.

This Black Ebony Inlay is a dark ebony that has been stained with India Ink to make it completely black. Instead of applying a gloss coat like on our other inlays, in this case we apply a finish coat of matte urethane to protect the wood. However, it has a raw ebony look This is the same technique used by guitar makers like Martin and Taylor to make their fretboards completely black.
