"Simple and effective tool."
I was shown this capo by Gerald Sheppard, a guitar maker in Tennessee. He had a modified one to a partial capo, which was pretty cool. I was impressed by the fact that the capo doesn't screw up the intonation, which is really annoying. Also, the open end doesn't interfere with fretting as much as some other designs. It is simple and effective. Needs a little GPS on it, tho, little boogers hide out worse than car keys.
string tension is easily adjustable, you can put just enough tension to capo but not distort/detune the guitar.
Very simple design, aluminum construction. Should be bulletproof until I lose it...
Ease of Use
I bought two of these, and was going to modify one into a partial capo. I really need a couple more!
I can't imagine this capo failing any time soon. The only reason I docked it a star is I can't 'park' it on the headstock easily, as you can with many capos. So I usually jamb it in a pocket; it comes through the wash ok.
Absolutely. good value for a sturdy, functional product.
No opinion, as I have had no problems.
The Wow Factor
Nice lines. I own both a black and silver one, the silver color is easier to find so the black one stays home while the silver one travels with me. Both look great in use.
