ok, I'm going out to buy a guiar capo today, and the lowest price is $2.25, however, im not sure if a capo that cheap is gonna last very long (my friend's cost $20). So does the quality matter? and the type? which type is better, for example I saw this one with a spring, so all you do is push the handle down and it clips on (i tihnk the brand is G7 or somthing like that).
And whatk inda quality should i look for, or material, that will last long, have good sound, not damage my guitar/strings/itself, and is at a reasonable price (preferrably less than $5)?

d00d...buy one of those dunlop capos...one of those that you just push the handle and clip it on your guitar's neck. I payed 16€ for it but it's good(I lost it on Friday's gig tho )

good idea, to get a good capo you will probably spend anywhere from 20-25$ on it. For 2.25 you would probably be buy something that resembles a rubber band (not kdding). It's an elastic band with some sort of cover over it.

i am an avid capo user, and i have several shubbs, kysers, a G7th, etc. the kyser is a good overall capo, but its clunky in its looks and it is ungainly and awkward, more geared for accoustic, but quick acting and plays well. the shubb is sleek and low profile, with the best action of any capo ive seen as far as string pressure and tuning issues, the G7th is also relatively low profile and has good action, and can perform partial (only 3 strings, etc.) grips. overall, you want it to be comfortable and not mess up your tuning when you use it. i would suggest the shubb or the G7th. they are both great for electric as well as accoustic and look great and perform great. but the kyser is also good in a pinch and cheap. any of these three and you'll be ok. havent tried the dunlop or the rollers.

Might want to take a look at the Glider Capo. More expensive in regards to some capos, but the ability to be able to change positions relatively quickly as well as being able to slide it just over the nut made the choice fairly simple for me.

I think they retail around $24USD. I got mine for less, but that's because I met the guy in person.
