Hey Rob,

I own both a Shubb classical capo and a D'Addario Planet Waves NS classical capo. Both are excellent but I always seem to reach for the Planet Waves. Really like the light weight and ease of use.

I've been happy with this one from Dunlop:

Inexpensive, unobtrusive, works well. If the link doesn't work, it's the #11F.

Default Another vote for Shubb...

Simple design that is easy to use and works very well all the time. I have a variety of Shubb capos and all they’ve served me well.

Thumbs up

O.k. thanks all for your thoughts......just as a matter of interest does anyone use the classical paige capos, i thought it may give a more even downward pressure and not tend to pull odd strings out of tune?

After trying quite a few different ones I now use the Shubb and find that to be the easiest to mount without going out of tune and it is just so simple.

I use a Shubb on my nylon string. Works for me.
