We all know the magic of the guitar capo – it’s a handy tool for any guitarist to have around the house, making your life much easier when you need to quickly change the key of a song. It’s a great way to experiment and explore, and find out just what your guitar can do! But have you ever wanted to take it a step further? For example, what if you want to quickly switch to playing with an alternate tuning, without the hassle? Enter: CapoSonic, a device that offers six individual hammers to clamp down, giving you endless possibilities for exploring new sounds and chords.
The CapoSonic was invented by Ben Ryan, a musician who wanted to avoid carrying multiple guitars to his gigs, but still be able to switch around from alternate tunings to standard tuning. After experimenting with multiple capos at a time, he was finally able to design what he needed in one simple gadget.
Check out the Kickstarter video below to learn just how it works:
As of October 22, CapoSonic was still looking for funding in order to become a reality. So, readers, is the CapoSonic something you’d buy? Have you experimented with alternate tunings in your own practice? We want to hear your thoughts! Leave a comment below, or stop by our Facebook page to share with the TakeLessons community.
