Today I want to show you a cool piece of equipment.
I’m sure you’re familiar with what a capo is. I published a detailed how-to guide on how to use a capo some time ago. Feel free to take a quick look at it (I’m also mentioning some quality capos you can get from Amazon).
In general, a capo is quite a basic accessory. You can only place it across a single fret, which doesn’t give you much diversity in terms of some cool note layouts and unique chords.
But this is probably all about to change. Here’s CapoSonic.
Currently, it’s a Kickstarter project, which means that it’s searching for funding in order to launch to the public.
CapoSonic is an adjustable capo, capable of giving you the benefits of using alternate tunings on your standard tuned guitar.
When it comes to performing on stage, it’s not uncommon for a guitarist to take a number of guitars with them just because each one is tuned differently. Grabbing another guitar is always much quicker than changing the tuning on your current guitar.
A product like CapoSonic solves this, and allows you to change the tuning right away. It’s quite difficult to explain how it works exactly, so just check out the video:
Owning such a thing would surely be cool. I encourage you to join the mailing list so you can get updated on what’s going on with the product. I don’t know how much this is going to cost yet. I guess it shouldn’t be that much more expensive than a standard capo.
In the end, I will surely get one once it’s available and I encourage you to do the same.
By the way, some time ago I mentioned another promising piece of equipment – the EverTune guitar bridge. Don’t forget to take a look at it too.
