Guitto Launches the Revolver Capo

A newly designed capo with an adjustable spring setup.

Shenzhen, China (June 20, 2019) -- Guitto is a whole new brand founded by JOYO Technology. Different from JOYO, this new brand is focused on creative accessories. Today we are announcing a new capo with unique design.

Have you ever observed your capo? A normal capo with too much pressure is very likely to mess up your tone. Try to play a note on your 6th string, then play multiple times with different pressure on your left-hand finger. You will hear slightly different tones between these notes. That's why you need a capo with an adjustable spring. With this capo, your strings will always stay in tune. What you see is what you hear.

GGC-02 also has other unique features. A nail puller is attached at the bottom of the handle, there's no more trouble when you change your strings. Besides, a hidden slot on the capo allows you to set a pick on it, you will never worry about losing picks on stage with this insurance mechanism.

This capo may be the most functional one you ever try.

Features:

  • Adjustable capo pressure.
  • Nail puller attached.
  • Hidden slot for pick.
  • Revolver shape design.

A bone nut being back-filed for proper string placement and correct action height.

It doesn’t have to cost a lot to change your acoustic guitar’s tone and playability.

In my early days, all the guitars I played (which all happened to be pre-1950s) used bone nuts and saddles. I took this for granted, and so did my musician friends. With the exception of the ebony nuts on some turn-of-the-century parlors and the occasional use of ivory, the use of bone was a simple fact of our guitar playing lives, and alternative materials were simply uncommon to us.

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
