I bought my first guitar in the early 1960's and this style of capo was just about all that was then available. The fact that it is STILL available must tell you something. The one illustrated here even looks exactly like the one I had and which only wore out a few years ago.

The principle of its use is simple and although it is a bit more fiddly to use and even though you can't minutely adjust the pressure as you can with modern capo designs such as the Shubb or G7th models, it is still a very workable, reliable and cheap solution that is especially suited to guitars with flat (ie: classical) or almost flat fretboard profiles. For those with a more obvious radius, I'd recommend looking elsewhere.

As with many capos, after long use, the rubberised surface which presses onto the strings can develop indentations. With this style of capo you can simple rotate the cylindrical the 'pad' on the spindle which runs through its centre. By the time you've gone full circle, the older indentations will have filled out and you can start over again.

I had one of these capos for over 40 years and only had to get rid of it when the elastic started to 'give' a bit too much and one of the holes through which the spindle had to be pushed started to tear .... but in my book, 40 years regular use earned this style of capo a huge plaudit and a well-deserved retirement. Maybe it says something that although I now have Shubb and G7th capos (Shubbs are my favourite), I have also bought a new one of these old-style capos simply because I've always had one and I know they are totally reliable.

It may not be flash and it isn't an obvious gizmo-style gadget like so many modern and more expensive capos.

Plus point: it works well on both classical (wide flat) necks and steel string (cambered) necks.

It's tension is adjustable thanks to a couple of holes in the strap, but I've found on my guitars that the loosest setting is not loose enough - it takes a lot of force the stretch the elastic on to that hole. It's not that I'm a wimp (although I am), but a looser setting would do the job well enough, as well as allowing the pick to be slid up or down the neck without removing it. (Just occasionally it's fun to do this in the middle of a tune - and roller capos are a lot more expensive.)
I suspect, after long and heavy use, the elastic might start to lose its tension, which would explain why the holes are set so tight - but an looser one could still be provided. As it is, I've had to cut an extra hole myself to make the thing easier to use.

Got this capo and tried it out straight away. What a waste of money. Firstly, it is not tight enough to properly press down on the strings, and secondly the black plastic cylinder is clumsy and awkward. I found not only a buzzing sound, but also noticed it couldn't press down firmly enough to change the pitch of the strings whatsoever. Immensely disappointing. I soon ordered a trigger capo which works perfectly!!!

I have to use this on the third hole, i.e. the tightest for it to function properly. So, when the elastic stretches over time, it will become unusable. Also, the free end is covered with a metal tag, which might scratch the guitar neck. I'll go back to my prefered make, although it costs at least 3 times what this one was (but this one is very cheap at £1).

This is my first capo; I've never seen or used any other, and after buying this and using it for a few months, I don't think I'll need to! Of course, I'm still a total amateur, so who knows? If you're a novice guitarist looking for some cheap, effective tools, you can't go wrong with this one. :)
