Beard Wave Capo

About This Item

Better sound and design for Dobro®
Machined from steel for a crisper and cleaner tone than brass, the Beard Wave™ Capo is also contoured so it won't interfere with your playing. The mass of this steel capo also contributes to your guitar's sustain.

A large, precision tension knob makes it easy to adjust with one hand. Fits both 6-string and 8-string square-neck resonators.

Dimensions
2-1/2" x 5/8" x 7/16" tall (63mm x 16mm x 11mm)

Stainless steel.

Dobro Capo

By

Verified Buyer


I have tried several Capo's........this one is fast on the draw. The little bunch I play with switches so fast to off keys that sometimes they would be half way through a song before I could put my old Capo on!
Even better than my old wide Beard Capo. Can't wait for Friday Nights.

Easy to use - overall sound has some issues

I'm using it on a Recording King resonator. Above the 5th fret, it causes dissonant overtones on certain strings. Also, and possibly related, because it doesn't touch the neck, the overall sound is quieter and thinner than the dobro played w/o capo. I'm able to compensate by crafting a piece of wood that goes underneath the capo wedged against the fingerboard. That fixes everything - it really sounds fine with the wood strip in. But that's kind of a pain in the neck and points to a design defect IMHO.

Reminiscent of the Aspen Pittman Fat Finger only in a Capo, and what a well machined piece of work!

The design is lovely, and the mass adds some warmth and sustain to the sound on a few of the resonator and Hawaiian guitars I have tried this on. Most recently I used it on a little Supro fiberglass body resonator guitar, made by the Valco National Dobro company in the 1960s. I had to hand form a cone for it, and I think it sounded much more aggressive with the Wave capo. Beard cones have been a staple on all my builds including a guitar we made from pressed sugar cane fiber, which is like really hard Masonite. In fact, a sheet of it is so hard, it sound like metal rather than a plant fiber product. The Beard Wave really brought out the full tone of that experimental instrument. It's just a neat item!

Very difficult to find. Beard didn't even have them for sale. Glad you had one available. Thank you!
