Testimonials

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!

Customer survey

I was recently contacted by a luthier who has purchased a PPC, and he made me aware of an added benefit of using a Perfect Pitch Capo – reduced fret wear!

He was explaining that he had a customer who was needing a new fret job, and one of the primary reasons was fret wear caused by using a conventional capo. I never thought of this, but a conventional capo is pressing the string against the fret, and is constantly moving across the fret as the string is played. Over time, this would indeed cause fret wear and an expensive re-fret job!

Due to the Perfect Pitch Capo’s unique design, this fret wear is eliminated. The ‘tongue’ of the PPC acts as it’s own ‘fret’ or ‘nut’, lifting the string clear of the fret. The result? NO FRET WEAR. Brilliant!

Thanks Eric!
