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

Holly...a gift to you from you? at least it doesn't cost as much as a new/used guitar!!!

Currently, I use a Schubb capo. Just wanted to know if anyone had tried or purchased the Elliott capo. It must be nice for what they are charging. It would be a good birthday gift for me.

Elloit is similar design to $30 Paige Clik but more robust.

I can live with my Victor capos...for six string and shins for 12!

Yeah, kinda pricey for the non-professional player. I can live with my Shubbs.

aren't the Elliot capos the most costly out there? something like $125 or so??

here's a link...I was off in my guess!http://elliottcapos.com/CaposGuitar.html

looks similar to a Paige Capo to me

Phil Elliott capo...never heard of that one! Git a link?
Comment by Holly Astrid Word on January 17, 2015 at 2:13pm

Has anyone tried the Phil Elliott capo? Any recommendations?

 Thanks..

Its not too useful, IMHO, tried it on all my guitars.

Unlike rubber and rubber-like pads, the polymeric string pad is too hard, leaving too little pressure on plain strings, causing buzz.

On the plus side, the profile of the capo gives your hand a lot a free space. I didn't have any cramped chords.
