Paige Capos, take the money and run 5 Replies

Saying I'm disappointed would be an understatement. After the glowing reviews of the Paige 12 string capo, I expected a superb product. That may have been true some years ago. It's not true now.As I…Continue

Capos on the headstock 11 Replies

I was involved in a jam the other day and when I put the tuner on my headstock, one of the other players said, "Jim, I hope you're not gonna leave that tuner on there." I agree with him.  I strongly…Continue

so clean up bar with varsol, slice a piece of mousepad.. glue and voila!


it works!

put it on the works

better that the paige Clik, i didnt have to retune!

this is one of the capos i used on my 60's Espana 12 string..

Look what i found in an old brief case, along with a Harmonica....

My old Hamilton capo.. this has to be at least 45 years old. Notice it was 'repaired' with electrical tape after the  surgical tubing deteriorated.


The neck rest has had adhesive backed felt added at some point.  It is filthy... heh

Think ill put a new vinyl tube on bar and try  it out.

The Paige Clik 12 string model sucks. It has none of the touted features of the regular Paige 12 string capos.

it does not self-center, it does not keep in tune, it is clumsy to operate.

There is seemingly no quality control in manufacturing and packaging and no after-sales product support. I wasted 30$

A 6 string Kyser capo does a better job. An old Dunlop with tubing does a better job.

I'll bet a pencil with an elastic band would outperform the Clik 12.

bitter? yes?

all they had to do is reply, now they have someone who will recount this negative experience for years to come, when ever the name Paige comes up.

well  Rings towards hook did not work well on the CLIK model, Rings towards hinge works better, but because of the lack of the auto-centering in the CLIK, postilioning is still slow.. ..

Comment by michael schwartz on May 15, 2014 at 7:11pm

towards the hook on the octave strings only

Comment by Robert Williamson on May 15, 2014 at 6:38pm

google image search shows that position seems to be differnt for the original and CLIK models

Original has rings towards clip,

Clik has rings towards hinge.

I had done rings towards clip, easier. So...

Another silicone drench and deft work with the magic wrench and rings are now at hinge end..  Seems to line up  better.. cross fingers..

Comment by Robert Williamson on May 15, 2014 at 4:05pm

the Clik12 string capo does NOT auto-center like regular 12 string Paige. This capo can be used for recording only, as it take much to long to position it in a live situation.

Perhaps i need to add a bumper like I did on the Scubbs.

@michael. I've noted that various pictures show the ring on either end of bar.

What is the ring  location on your Paiges, towards hinge or hook?

@Robert...Let us know it sounds for you. I certainly hope you'll find it that it was worth  your effort!!
