The D’Addario Planet Waves NS Capo Pro is a c-clamp/variable tension style capo that’s intended to be used on guitars with radiused fretboards (fretboards that are curved).

To place the capo you slide it onto the neck and tighten the mechanism, and to remove it you loosen the thumbscrew. The best part about this capo is that you can adjust the tension it exerts on the neck, so you’re less likely to have to re-tune when using it.

A potential draw-back with this capo is that there isn’t a quick-release mechanism, so removing the capo will take longer than it would with either a trigger-style capo or one that does include a quick-release mechanism.
