I wanted a convenient Capo to fit different guitar necks without having to carry a bulky contraption. I don't normally use a Capo, but it is a must have for any player. This little gadget fits all my different guitars (from nylon fretboard to the very narrow electric ones). Just be "kind" to your guitar when you put it on, so it won't get your strings out of whack. Trust me, it would compromise the intonation big time if you don't place it correctly. But that can be said for any capo I've used before. I like it so much and the price is so reasonable that I might get one on each one of my guitar cases maybe as soon as I finish this review.

My major gripe: the strap length must be constantly adjusted when placing the capo on different frets, which can become tedious and aggravating. Although the adjustable strap length is a nice feature, the tension is not distributed evenly through the capo, which can cause buzzing or muting of the strings, particularly the B and high E strings. Best used in a jam situation, or for quick access in your pocket or guitar case.

a reliable low-profile capo

By oboejones

Comments about Dunlop Pro Curved Guitar Capo:

I have used the Dunlop Pro Curved Guitar Capo for both 6- and 12-string acoustics (Martin and Guild respectively) for many years. I have recently switched to Kyser capos for fast changes on the fly but prefer the Dunlop when capoing above the 5th fret because its low profile doesn't interfere with my hand. The other attractive feature is that its tension is completely adjustable. Other reviewers have remarked on the need to change the strap length depending on the fret position: an easy way around this is to adjust the tension for a high fret and then, when using it on a lower fret, twist the strap 180 degrees. This reduces the effective strap length and increases tension without needing to actually change the strap position in the cleat.

Only capo I'll ever own...

Comments about Dunlop Pro Curved Guitar Capo:

A college buddy turned me on to these in the early '70s, and I've never used anything else in the last 40 years. In fact, not only do I have one in every case - including one of the extremely rare gold ones from the late-70's that's a perfect compliment to my wife's Ovation Elite (and I understand now sell for several hundred dollars, if you can find one) and a Gibson-branded model from 1975 - I keep a spare in my jacket pocket just in case I need to bail someone out when their Kyser explodes; heck, I even cut one down with a Dremel to use as a banjo capo - looks/feels/sounds better than anything else I've tried, and it never fails to draw attention from fellow players asking where I got it (are you listening, Dunlop?). As long as the strap is properly adjusted, there haven't been any tuning problems with my 6-string guitars; 12-strings are notorious in the lower strings even when played open, so I really don't consider this too much of a drawback. Lightweight, cheap, durable - I still have all my originals from college, and they show no signs of quitting...what more could you ask of any product?

      Comments about Dunlop Pro Curved Guitar Capo:

      I have had the flat model since the seventies. I guess it will last. Between the flat and now the curved, all guitars, basses, and folk instruments are covered. This is not a great performance capo, depending on the fret (third sixth etc) the strap will have to be re-adjusted and occasionally a string will have to be fine tuned. But own these first as a basic then take the time to figure out what works best for you. These little capos will be rock solid dependable for many years.

          Comments about Dunlop Pro Curved Guitar Capo:

          My 2nd capo purchase. Previous one is a spring loaded clamp that required considerable re-tuning before and after use. I was unsure about selecting between curved and flat because the differences regarding application weren't fully explained. Luckily, it seems to work VERY WELL on my Strat.

          Comments about Dunlop Pro Curved Guitar Capo:

          I bought the Dunlop Pro because i wanted a compact backup. I don't know that at the low price of the Dunlop i could have done any better. I have a capo that's a lot more expensive but it doesn't do anything that this little Dunlop doesn't do.

              I had one of these 40 years ago, and wanted one again for something small I could carry in my pocket or wouldn't make a big bulge in a gig bag pocket. Once you get the little buckle adjusted properly this one is quick and easy to use. I like it better than the capos with a simple elastic band and grommets, although the big lever capos are a little easier to use.
