Doesn't feel like Budget! Save Money rather than Buy the established Brands
The Eric Johnson of Helsinki 28.08.2017
It's only recently that I've been using alternate tunings again, because they make your guitar a whole new instrument. Most of all, I like to detune, then to use a capo, because it gives the timbre a whole new character. So recently I've been recording four guitar tracks, each in a different tuning. The effect is awesome.

What you need for this of course is a capo. For my folk teaching and gigging I use Csus2 tuning, DADGAD, open D, and so on. There are some great books out there about this.

When I sent my stuff back to London, I sent a couple of G7 capos, and now I'm a professional (for want of a better word) musician, money is tight. I needed a capo for a folk gig with a great female singer. Thought I'd just get this one but to be fair, I wasn't expecting much. I was wrong.

I think this is Thomann's own brand but I'm not sure. But it can hold its own with G7s, etc. It's easy to apply, and sturdy. Excellent stuff.

So if you're a bit hard up, this is the one for you. And like a previous review of "the little things" like picks, remember that you can have all the posh stuff on the planet (I have some pretty high end stuff), but this is what I tell my students: it begins with the fingers on the frets. That's the most important thing. So it's so easy to think that because a guitar has a posh name on the headstock, it'll make you play like Eric Clapton, Michael Hedges, or Wes Montgomery... this is not the case.

That is why I am giving this five out of five overall. The cost-quality ratio outweighs all of the competition. For this reason I'm seriously considering this brands other products, I mean you can never have too many compressors! Certainly made me rethink the fretboard and opened up new timbres. What's not to like?

Its hard to mess up a capo
Gingicecon 10.11.2020
I got this because the I lost my last capo and its a good idea to have one around in your gig bag or something even if you don't use it very often.

What can I say, it holds the strings down at each of the frets. Its very hard to mess up a capo, you'd have to really try make something awful if that was the goal but chances are it would still work, so basically what I'm saying is its a good one.

If your after a capo this is a good one to get, it gets you through anything your playing with no bother. hope this helps

Great Value, very good Capo
Fusio 29.11.2021
I find this capo very good because it works just as well on acoustic, electric and nylon string guitars. My students have the strength to operate it as well which is often a problem with other cheap capos

No problems with this, I think other shapes are "easier" to use but overall I think it´s worth it and still easy to use
