OctaveTouch

Constructed by a proprietary silicone blend that exactly mimics the elasticity of the human finger and works great on 12-string, Baritone, and 6-string guitars. Comes in both standard tension and high tension (2mm thicker) configurations. OctaveTouch Standard Tension Fretpads, work with all 6-strings, while High Tension Fretpads are designed to handle 12-string, Mandolins, Ukuleles & thin necked guitars.   For more information on our all NEW OctaveTouch™ fretpads, please see this blog post:  OctaveTouch™ 



TEFLON SLIDING

Our Teflon Fretpad’s material attributes are the complete opposite of rubber. While rubber is soft and binding, Teflon is hard and slippery. These characteristics, produce a noticeably more vibrant tone and allow the strings to bend and slide beneath the capo, which help to keep your guitar in tune. This makes teflon act like a finger instead of a nut.  Comes in both standard tension and high tension (2mm thicker) configurations. Teflon Standard Tension Fretpads, work with all 6-strings, while High Tension Fretpads are designed to handle Mandolins, Ukuleles & thin necked guitars. * Not to be used with 12-strings or Baritone guitars.



RUBBER

Our Rubber Fretpads are harder than our OctaveTouch fretpads but are still soft enough to bind the strings to the fret, keeping them from moving beneath the capo.    This makes them act like a nut.  Traditional capos have always used rubber due to its conforming characteristics. Every Thalia Capo comes with a set of our Standard & High Tension Rubber Fretpads.



Partial esus

These rubber fretpads convert any 200 series Thalia Capo into a Esus Partial Capo. When the capo is installed from the treble side (bottom) of the neck, strings 2-3-4 or 1-2-3 will be fretted.  When installed from the bass side (top) of the neck, strings 3-4-5 or 4-5-6 can be fretted.  These are very useful with alternate tunings.

Functionally superior and esthetically perfect

I have had trouble using regular capos on my 8-string baritone guitar. The reason being the baritone uses much thicker gauge strings to produce its low tones, plus it has 2 middle strings doubled up with thinner strings to fill in higher tones. This kind of profile presents extreme difficulties for regular capos. Through Chris Bradley's expert recommendation, I purchased a 15" curvature OctaveTouch Fretpad, which fits into a Thalia Electric Angel Wing 24K Gold capo. I no longer get dead sounds from the thinner strings and I am able to produce the full sound of the 8 string. I always get good compliments about my beautiful Thalia capo whenever I perform. Highly recommended capo set up for 12-string guitars too!

Awesome Customer Service

I contacted support when I could not find a fret pad that would not pull my Gibson parlor sharp. Even using the correct radius would not help. They contacted me back quickly and told me that using lighter gauge strings can cause this problem. So they sent me a Octavetouch fret pad free of charge to try! They also sent me a coupon code for 15% off. This fret pad has been working much better. Still slightly sharp on 5th and 6th strings but will try next heavier gauge string when I change again. Awesome customer service! Thanks!

Teflon heats it up.

If you want to heat -up the sound from your fretboard when using a capo, try the Teflon fretpad from Thalia. I ordered one and inserted it n my Thalia rosewood capo, and was really stoked by the improvement in brightness over the rubber pad. Really gives some pop if you fingerstyle! Try it.

Don't fret it!

The Single Fretpad is the perfect solution to replace a worn fretpad on your Thalia Capo. Fits perfectly into your existing capo body and provides the ideal pressure needed for perfectly sounding notes while using your favorite Thalia Capo. They come in different configurations for a specific styles of playing or desired tone.

Replaceable!

Somehow the fret pad fell off while packing up after a gig. Upon return the next week, I found it on the floor but it had been stepped on and broken. Easily ordered a replacement and I'm back in business. Thanks to Thalia for a great product!
