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?

Just what I needed
Jazzbass1946, 24.12.2019
I'm not really a guitar player but needed a capo just for setting up my basses. And that's all I use it for. Perfect product for that purpose.
It looks quite sturdy and since I don't use it on a daily basis I expect it to last quite a long time. I can't think of any negative comment so.... a good little investment.
As usual perfect service from Thomann.

My first purchased capo
23.02.2017
I've recently gotten my hands on this capo, even though i have used many before, i never thought i would actually want to buy one. Recently i thought why not it's only 4.90¤.

Expectations: First i thought i would get a plastic more or less weak capo that would start to deteriorate over the first couple of uses.

Reality: Dude this is is heavy duty! It's super sturdy metal build and powerful rubber stood out immediately. Definitely unexpected from a 4 bucks capo. I've been playing with it since i got it, hits all the strings perfectly and has quite the biting power on it. It's spring action is very powerful and definitely will hold up on many years of playing, from where i'm sitting right now. I believe i have a higher chance of losing it somewhere rather than it quitting on me.

Pros:
- Very sturdy heavy build
- Rubber marks are high quality rubber and feel very nice
- Easy on the neck of the guitar with another rubber pad on the other clip.

Cons:
- None.

If you're in the market for a capo, definitely go for this one! I have to add as well that i've purchased quite some products from Harley Benton recently mainly accessories (some picks, strap etc...) they're all very fairly priced and what you get somehow always seems of higher value than what you pay! Great products will definitely look into HB for future guitar relevant investments.
