Cheap Capo for Beginners – Guitar Accessories
The problem with capos is that you can spend an extortionate amount for something that may or not do the job properly or pay the smallest amount for something that is not fit for purpose. Personally as someone who gets a lot of use out his Capos I edge towards the £5-£10 area – I have £2.99 capos as spares for my students.
The capo featured is pretty damn good for the price – it has a strong grip that doesn’t distort the strings and it covers all the strings well – it is clear enough for strumming and finger picking. How long it lasts is the question but if I get 6 moths out of it I’ll be happy.
Compared to the £2.99 capo I bought it it is way ahead – they tend to have a looser grip and don’t tend to cover the strings properly.
Would I use this professionally?
Live yes, most definitely – would I use it for recording?
Not sure really, I need to do some tests but on first day it seems to perform well, much better than my previous capos in the same price range.
