I'm pretty sure im going to invest in a capo soon. What i would like to know is if there are any 'crappy' brands, or ones i should avoid. Any recommendations of a capo over the other ones?

Dude just buy whatever one you like.
Their not expensive, and if it sucks, then get another one.

That being said I have a Dunlop one that I bought for like $30. It does it's job. It can fit on my 7-string too

When you break a bass string, that snapping sound is the sound of six dollars going down the crapper.

I suggest getting yourself a nice capo that will last you for a long time. My personal favorite are the Kysers -they work well for both electric and acoustic and they are much quicker (as being a clamp style) than the shady elastic-band capos. Dunlop also makes a decent capo, although I still like the string pressure consistency of a Kyser, they're about 17 bucks... but are well worth it -it's the last one you'll ever have to buy.

Good luck!

Understandable. First time I was talking to my parents about them I pronounced them like 'capo' and my mom thought i was nuts. Its pronounced 'Cay-poh', and is something placed on the neck of the guitar to make the pitch higher by an octave or so (depends on where you place it). I think it's mostly prospered a lot in acoustic guitarmanship where it is difficult to raise the pitch due to the tension of the strings.

these work really well too. much like the dunlop of a similar style.

dont get the roller ones, with spring wraps around back of neck. there's nowhere to put them when not in use.

the trigger types can be clamped to the headstock.

I have this, if I lost it I would order another one. Would never consider switching to something else. Get this one



^This, its a wicked capo. I have the silver one and the gold one, I want the black one just to say i have all 3, and the black one looks sexiest.
