Capos: The Ultimate Banjo Capo

Submitted by Stuart Bowen on 9/22/2010

Where Purchased: Janet Davis Music

Overall Comments

I've been using the "Ultimate Banjo Capos" from Janet Davis on "flat-fingerboards" for several years now. It stores stores behind the nut if you like, adjusts to exactly the tension needed, not squishy, and works most anywhere on the neck that you need it. It does take an extra wiggle or two to make sure it installs solid against all the strings when putting it on, but this becomes pretty quick and automatic after using it for awhile.

Very pleased with the Tony Pass thinskirt Lost Timbre banjo rim I purchased from Tony to use in bluegrass banjo. No heavy tone ring needed with this rim. It plays and sounds great.

Components

Nechville installed a "Flux Capicator" adapter to adapt the (used demo) Nechville Vintage neck to a 2 Piece Flange pot. A Nechville radius bridge and tailpiece was installed to match the redius neck. This is the most comfortable and playable neck I've ever played.

Overall Comments

I couldn't be more pleased with the neck the set-up and the overall result.
