Capos: Planet Waves

Submitted by DantheBanjoMan on 3/9/2011

Where Purchased: Elderly Instruments

Overall Comments

This is the PW guitar capo that adjusts with a single screw. I sawed it shorter to fit my new banjo. Good even pressure plus I can regulate the pressure so it doesn't play sharp.

Overall Rating: 10

Capos: Shubb Sliding 5th-String Capo

Submitted by DantheBanjoMan on 8/2/2010

Where Purchased: Janet Davis and Elderly

Overall Comments

I have four of these capos and I absolutely love them. I had been using railroad spikes, but I find this capo easier to use and more tonally accurate. The only downside is that you have to drill a couple of holes in your banjo, but unless you plan on removing the caop it really isn't a big deal. I installed my own capos, but since it invovles drilling holes in your banjo most people will probably prefer professional installation. The capo also provides a visual reference so I know where the "virtual" fifth fret is at a single glance.

Overall Rating: 10
