this product is not entirely unusable. If you are playing by yourself at home. but if you need your intonation to be accurate, look elsewhere. it works fine on the third fret. on higher frets the tension is to high and everything is slightly sharp. that also means its pulling the strings out of tune. on lower frets the the tension is to low and the strings buzz. unless your willing to except a loss of sound quality for functionality dont get this. I just ordered a shubb because they have adjustable tension, I haven't got it yet but I here their the best you can get.

I've used one of the originals - without the current buckle and with more "slots" - for years on Gibson-type necks and fingerboard radius. The curved might work fine, but I don't have a shorter radius guitar.

Here's the problem: On a really "flat" fingerboard it's just not that good. I'm a bit disappointed because I like the "extra light weight" concept.

I'd say that if you have a really flat fingerboard it's worth messing with perhaps, but you're better off with something like the Kyser - but again, be careful that the purchase matches the radius.

When it's a bit curved and the fingerboard isn't, I found I couldn't really get an adjustment that doesn't muffle strings on a "hybrid" nylon string guitar. With the old version - mine has gotta be over 30 years old - with the more slots I never had a problem. Go figure.

    Comments about Dunlop Deluxe Pro Guitar Capo:

    I have been using these capos for over 30 years, and I am completely sold on their ease of use, and low profile. I have tried the spring loaded capos, and for various reasons, I have found theses dunlops work best. Any capo will change the pitch of the guitar, depending the fret it is assigned to. If you are capoing much past the 3rd or 4th fret, perhaps a change of key is in order. These capos have never marred the neck, and adjusted properly, never buzz.

    Musician's Friend is a better alternative to the shops here in the SF Bay Area. No talking with clerks who would rather be somewhere else; or being asked to settle for second or third best when I am looking for a particular item. What I want is what I get with Musician's Friend.

    Inexpensive capo

    By Robert Swarts

    from Pacific NW

    Comments about Dunlop Deluxe Pro Guitar Capo:

    An inexpensive capo probably worth even less than it cost. Relatively easy to use, but tends to be in the way of the fretting fingers. Capturing the lever arm would make it much easier to use. Does work, but I would not buy it again.

    well, it's not terrible...

    Comments about Dunlop Deluxe Pro Guitar Capo:

    Don't get me wrong -- this is a decent-enough capo, & it gets the job done. However, it coulda been better.

    Dunlop makes this capo & the similar-looking "curved" one, of which I've owned a few. Those capos seem to go home with other players, so I like to start off with one in my pocket & one in my case. So, Problem Number One: this version seems to fall apart pretty easily. I wind up with the plastic bar & the capo body as two separate pieces, though (so far) I haven't lost the little metal buckle. I know the two capos are almost identical, but this has never happened to me with a curved Dunlop.

    Problem Two: only two notches. The curved model has five, so I can easily adjust the buckle to take care of ALL my guitars, whether the slim-neck Univox or the half-round Harmony, then just choose the appropriate notch when I change instruments. With only two notches, I waste time fiddling with the buckle.

    All in all, this capo will get the job done. It's small & doesn't get in the way, & it's not at all expensive. Unlike spring-loaded capos, it takes up almost no space in the case & fits just fine in your pocket. I just wish it was a little better!!
    Doesn't quite live up to my expectations.
    The build quality is solid & sturdy -- no problems there.
    If you buy one & it doesn't work out for you, no big loss if you chuck it in the trash, but you can probably sell it to someone else for what you paid.

    Great capo!

    Comments about Dunlop Deluxe Pro Guitar Capo:

    Buy this capo and you wont regret it, works perfectly and dosnt get in the way of anything
    At first i got this for my acoustic just to mess around with and see if i liked it, i love it and use it nonstop when i play acoustic. I tired it on my classical and it works amazing, i thought i was gonna have to buy a diffrent type of capo for my classical but it fits and hugs the strings tightly. Just like it should
    Good quality but sometimes when you tighten it it feels like the plastic will snap, hasnt happened though so it must be pretty durable.
    This thing is great for the money, im buying a second one for my classical for sure

    Comments about Dunlop Deluxe Pro Guitar Capo:

    seriously, save up another 5 bucks and get the Dunlop Trigger capo. for all those saying that they like the minimalistic design: trigger capo's never, ever, ever, ever get in my way, even when playing open chords. I have no idea what you guys are talking about. I had this for about a year when I was 13 and I first started the guitar. I then upgraded to a real capo.
