As you could guess, im buying a capo. I've narrowed it down to the G7th Nashville and the Kyser Quick-Change Capo.

and

I have heard great things about g7th but i have never used one and nobody i know has ever used one either. Any advice?

i like my kyser. but pretty much you have to try them out. some think the kyser is awkward to put on but i dont.
#3
I have used the G7th, and it is a wonderful capo. Much less intrusive than the Kyser.

All i have is 6's. Im not a fan of more strings
I was looking at the Dunlop Trigger Capo but people have said its worth a few extra $ to get the kyser.


Thanks for all the quick replies!

both the kyser and the g7th are $20. The dunlop is cheaper, but it looks intrusive like i'd keep smacking my fingers on it.

*goes to buy the kyser*
Thanks for the input.
I hear that the kyser can be used upside-down so it only capos 3 strings... Does that work? That would be really nice for playing that Andy McKee son where he capos the top 3 strings.

I prefer the G7th that is a ratchet. It is like 40 bucks, but it is the best capo on the market...

That's the one I have, it's probably the best capo I've ever used. Granted I didn't pay that much for it...or pay for it at all...or even buy it...I'll leave it up to your imagination to figure out how I got it...

The ratcheting G7th is the best one I've used. It allows to adjust the pressure to whatever you'd like, unlike the spring ones.
#17
The Kyser is probably the most popular capo on the market. The quickness of the spring action is hard to beat, especially in a live situation. However, they're not as accurate as a Shubb Deluxe or G7th. The Shubb lets you adjust string tension with a screw setting (I use this capo live) and the G7th adjusts tension with a ratcheting action.

Either the Shubb or G7th will give you more consistent tuning than the Kyser, but the Kyser will be a tad bit quicker to use.

Hope that helps!

The g7th performance is a bit out of my price range. I bought the kyser. Screws take too much time (im never in a hurry, im just impatient) so the spring see,ed to be the way to go. Thanks!
