Skips the sixth string (low E) and covers the other five, emulating a drop-D tuning.
In response to requests, we introduced this capo at the 2004 Winter NAMM show. Applied from above the neck (from the bass side), it cleanly skips the bass string and centers solidly on the neck while capoing the other five strings. While it is possible to accomplish the same thing on many necks using our one of our regular capos, they need to be applied from the treble side, off-center to avoid the bass string. Many users prefer to apply the capo from the bass side. This capo is designed to be applied from the bass side, with a step built in to skip over the bass E string, and it centers properly for improved stability.
