Our rolling capo fits all 6-string electric guitars, and may be rolled up to the 14th fret. Roll it out past the nut and over the pegboard when you don't need it.
The barre is shaped to match your fingerboard's cross-sectional radius of 8 or more inches, and is very flexible to fit various radii and compound radius necks. The barre axle is surrounded with Teflon™ and the durable outer barre roller. The nitrile elastic cord is also surrounded by Teflon™ rollers. The side-sliders are likewise of Teflon.
The rolling capo comes two models to make the capo blend best with the color of your guitar's fingerboard : glittering gold lacquer to match maple fretboards, or real Nigerian sapele wood veneer for your rosewood or ebony fretboards.
Every capo comes with a durable zippered case with a clasp.

The elastic CORD is the major determiner of the tone and feel of the capo. Too long (too loose), and the capo will roll easily, but you may have a buzzy tone. Too short and tight, and the tone will be crisp, but it might be difficult to attach the capo to your guitar, and less easy to move along the fretboard. There will be a perfect cord length for you and your guitar.
By undoing a single nut, one can replace the elastic cord. Our capos are shipped with an average length cord which is suitable for the large majority of electric guitars. The elastic cord and its terminals are nearly indestructible in normal use, but you may wish to try another length at a nominal cost. Contact us via email with your precise requirements and we can send you a replacement cord for low cost.
Almost all modern electric guitars have a narrow fingerboard with 9 to 12 inch cross-sectional radius at the nut (23cm to 31cm). Our barre and its axle are extremely flexible to accommodate various and compound radii. If your guitar has a wider or flatter fingerboard or an unusual neck, contact us via email and we can custom-make a capo for you.
