We are three guys drawn together by the joy of making music and playing guitar. Like many guitar players, we sometimes use a capo. And, like many guitar players, we get frustrated when the capo gets in the way of our playing and sends our guitars out of tune.
So we thought: “There must be a better way.” A way that isn’t in the way of your hand when you’re making chords. A way that doesn’t require retuning when the capo is applied. A capo that gets out of the way, so you can play!
By moving all but the fretting edge of the capo away from the fret, the fretting hand has more room and less capo. Why does this matter? Well some chords, like B7 are easy without a capo. But as soon as you apply other capos, those chords become hard to play. Not so with the patented Colorado Capo - it gets out of the way, so you can play!
NO NEED TO RETUNE
Most capos throw the guitar out of tune when applied. Nothing like having to tell a lame joke while retuning between songs. But our unique blade design, makes it easy to place the front edge of the capo directly behind the fret. This provides solid string-to-fret contact with minimum string deflection, so the guitar stays in tune. So, fewer jokes needed!
CRAFT YOUR SOUND
Turns out, we can make our blades out of different materials. And different materials change the sound so you can customize your tone by simply changing the blade! Combine different blade sizes and materials with different guitar sizes and tonewoods. You're sure to find the tone you have been searching for!
CUSTOMIZE YOUR CAPO TO FIT YOUR STYLE
Our standard capo comes with the very cool Colorado Capo logo etched on the back of the blade. But, if you want to really amp the cool factor, you can work with our team to apply your own graphics to show your own unique style!
