NS Capos

Many of our groundbreaking models in the diverse NS Capo line are the result of a collaborative effort between famed designer Ned Steinberger and Jim D’Addario. With the additions of the NS Artist Capo, the NS Banjo/Mandolin Capo Pro and the NS Ukulele Capo Pro to the NS Capo line, whatever instrument, or style you play, Planet Waves has the capo for you.

Success Stories and Pitches that Work

The NS Capo Display

  • Capo Display is FREE with a buy-in of 5 of each featured capo:

    • NS Capo Pro (PW-CP-02)

    • NS Capo Lite (PW-CP-07)

    • NS Artist Capo (PW-CP-10)

    • NS Tri-Action Capo (PW-CP-09)

  • Capos are secured with a discreet black cord to deter theft

  • 7.5" base diameter, 14" in height
     

  • The display allows customers to test the capo without the dealer having to figure out what they need or break them out to show the customer

  • Many dealers will make the "no room on the counter" objection, but the display is much smaller than it appears in print

  • Capos were never an impulse sale, but with the display customers are just adding them on
