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?

An okay capo that does the job for home jamming
AdamK95, 18.12.2020
While I was on the fence about spending a whole lot of money and a capo like those fancy Thalia ones, I think I am convinced a bit more. This capo is very nice in the beginning when the spring is tight but will eventually loosen. I like the fact that it's easy to use and you can snap it on quickly mid song, I've used it countless times in gigs for that. Normally on cheaper capos they apply force differently on different strings, making some of them intoned and some of them sharp, this one does it very lightly but not to the point that it's audible for the standard audience. Overall I think it's a good buy to learn how to use the capo but if I could chose again I would buy a more expensive one that's more dependable.

Pretty solid capo!
Panagiotis Sysk., 09.12.2020
It's simple and effective.
Clamping force is strong.
I've had it for more than 2 years (and I use it A LOT), it has some wear but it still works!
Worth every penny!

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.
