Your favorite capo?
20 Replies

What is your favorite capo? Mine is the G 7th Nashville Capo. I've tried several and this one seems to suit me best.

iPad app of AG Magazine
3 Replies

Quick question. I have a subscription for the printed version of AG Magazine. As a result, is there any way to use the AG iPad app without paying for each issue again? If so, how?

"Shubb capos, hands down. Both the 6 and 12-string models. Guitars stay in tune and they are easy to place on or take off."

"well--im afraid i have to revise my answer:after much buzzing when using my shubb on my guild, i finally brought it in to my luthiers. it only took him a few minutes to diagnose the cause: the curve of the shubb doesnt quite mate with the curve of…"

nick g replied to Joe Zagerman's discussion Your favorite capo?
"I have a Kyser for my acoustics and a Dunlop Trigger for my electrics. I try not to overuse them, and often play without needing them using the right chord shapes. Often. I'll slide chord shapes around and use a lot of open strings, so a capo…"

JB Maddox replied to Joe Zagerman's discussion Your favorite capo?
"I have used several including the new Planet Waves and the Shubb but I still like the Kyser best.  I think Kyser works best if your action is low and the neck is precision set.  The Shubb seems better for a higher action.  Not sure…"

JB Maddox replied to Joe Zagerman's discussion Martin D28 vs D28P in the group Martin Owners
"I never liked the neck on the standard D-28.  It always felt clunky to me.  But the tone has always been to die for. I have had the D-28P for about a month now and it is the absolute best playing guitar I have ever owned including Taylors,…"

Meredith Harley Inserra replied to Joe Zagerman's discussion Your favorite capo?
"I have an old brass shubb that works great.  It's an old model that they don't make anymore.  It's so old the rubber pad that presses the strings dry rotted and flaked off and I had to replace it.  I got it when I was…"

Richard Lee Norris replied to Joe Zagerman's discussion Your favorite capo?
"Aha, good man, Phil. I've just ordered a Paige full/wide for using on my wood bodied reso which I tune standard with the action just a little higher than usual so it needed something with more grunt than I figured my G7th would provide. True,…"

"I'm with you on your Oct 27 post, Phil. I too use a lot of chimey open strings and I need a capo for that. I use a G7th Performance which I swapped for a length of fretboard timber with a local luthier who part times in a guitar shop here.…"

Phil Manuel replied to Joe Zagerman's discussion Your favorite capo?
"I've used / am using several different capos.  So, far the easiest and cheapest of the bunch is the Planet Waves NS Tri-Action Capo, Black, which I got for about $13.  It's lightweight, and really easy to use.  Sorta like…"

Phil Manuel replied to Joe Zagerman's discussion Your favorite capo?
"Well, it may be that your style doesn't need a capo, and that's fine, but I find a capo very useful because my playing style involves using as many open strings (open chord positions), and allows me more flexibility rather than limits…"

Daryl Kosinski replied to Joe Zagerman's discussion Your favorite capo?
"Yes Phil the more you learn Closed, Caged, Barre or whatever you wnat to call them chords the more you will find you don't need a capo. I tried one about 45 years ago and found it way too limiting."

Phil Manuel replied to Joe Zagerman's discussion Your favorite capo?
"I disagree, but there is no best capo that I've found.  I will add, though, learn and feel comfortable playing barre chords and moveable chords up and down the fretboard first.  Learn how to construct chords, adding a 3rd in the…"
