We study numerically the propagation of necklace beams through a gas-filled capillary. Ultra-short pulses in the visible (VIS) region can be obtained due to the spectral broadening of these necklace beams. This new source of few-cycle VIS pulses can be generated carrying tens of microjoules of energy using these special beams, being a valuable tool for the improvement of the standard post-compression schemes in terms of spatial stability and output energy.
