Steve Martin has purchased several capos that he is currently using on his beautiful vintage banjos during his tour. Here's what he has to say about them:
"The capos are working great. They've changed the show for me and eliminated the 'tuning worry' I was going through each night."

Look at what Jody Stecher has to say...
"The Perfect Pitch produces a tone virtually identical with a hard nut so I get the same banjo tone on every fret. This may be the first time in banjo history this has occurred and I think it is a significant achievement. In a blindfold test or in listening to a recording there is no way to tell that the banjo has a capo on it. I think this is a major virtue of this capo."

A message from Jonathan – the new owner

After years of working together on the Perfect Pitch Capo, it's inventor Al Ferguson (my friend and bandmate) has moved on to other things. That means that I am now left as the owner of Perfect Pitch Capo.

I am looking forward to implementing some positive changes - better build quality, faster turnaround, even BETTER customer service (if that's possible!) and some refinements to the design. I will also be posting some new videos on tweaking your capo for best performance.

Still hand-made in the USA!

Why intonation matters.

FACT: An instrument who’s intonation is not set properly will never be in tune with ANY capo. It will also not play in tune up the neck WITHOUT a capo. Therefore, it is vitally important to set the intonation properly on your instrument. If you are not sure how to do this yourself, consult your luthier.

What is the return policy?

We offer a 30-day full money back guarantee if you are not satisfied with the capo. However, we strongly suggest that you call us first with your problem or concern at 530-380-CAPO. Many times we can resolve the problem either by suggesting some adjustments over the phone, or even by tweaking the capo to make it work for you.

If you still choose to return the capo:

1. Notify us by email first at sales@perfectpitchcapo.com stating the reason for the return. Please help us to improve our product by describing the problem in as much detail as possible.

2. Mail it to us with your name and email address so that we can issue a refund. Refunds are made via Paypal.

The return address is:
Perfect Pitch Capo
12469 The Hollow Rd.
Grass Valley, CA 95945

Why isn’t the capo available in my local store?

Every Perfect Pitch Capo is handmade here in the USA. Obviously, this is time and labor intensive. Selling our capos wholesale does not work financially, since we would only get 50% of retail. Therefore, we are currently only selling online through this website.

I love the capo! How can I help spread the word?

Great! One way is to leave a comment on the “Customer Comments” page describing how it has changed you experience. The other way would be to tell all of you fellow banjo and guitar players about us. Either way would be greatly appreciated!
