        Again, this is the absolute best capo that I have found on the market these days. You will not regret getting one of these capos. You will be a "happy camper" like I am with it.....................
        The absolute best capo that is real small and you can adjust the tension to whatever setting that you like.................
        Super heavy duty and great quality...............
        YouTube might say that you have to use 2 hands to adjust this capo but I only use 1 hand to adjust it. Something is really wrong with the dude on YouTube if he has to use both hands to move it from fret to fret.........

          Definitely a step up from the spring clip type capo, the low profile is great and is never in the way when you play. The quality is excellent. I would recommend this capo to anyone.

            Comments about Dunlop Victor Capo:

            The basic design is great, but the quality control at the factory is very poor. The screw action is very rough and uneven. That being said, if you are willing to work with it enough, it will smooth up and work very well. If you have the patience to work with it and get the action smooth, you will find it to be one of the best capos on the market.

              Comments about Dunlop Victor Capo:

              Been playing for over 40 years and I've owned or used every capo ever made. This is the absolute best one with the Shubb (which is what I've used for years) coming in second.. The problem with capos is that they either allow the string buzz due to not enough pressure or cause them to go sharp by exerting too much. Not any more. Just turn the screw and you apply exactly what you need. Some may complain you can't just snap it on but for a few extra seconds it's worth it especially for studio work. I tried it on my main go to solid body 14" radius and acoustic 12" radius and it worked perfectly on both. I'll try it on the dozen other guitars as I use them. I am more than pleased I decided to try it.

                  Just ordered one capo to try it out based on reviews, good price, works great on both my six strings. Easy to move up and down the neck, looks nice. When adjusting the cape for tension on the strings I get no buzzing and it stays in tune, doesn't matter how far up or down the neck I capo. I will be ordering another today.

                        I have used many types of capos. This one works very well. It is built like a tank. I wish they made a partial capo. I would definitely buy it. There is no question about quality performance. - It provides excellent sound.

                            Dunlop Victor (and Johnny Cash)--my favorite

                            By roman orest

                            from Minnesota

                            Comments about Dunlop Victor Capo:

                            The best!!!
                            Most guitar necks usually get wider/fatter as you move up the neck towards the body. Even if you have a neck that doesn't, what I love about the Victor (and Dunlop Johnny Cash as well), is that you can easily dial in the amount of tension on the capo each time you move it--the tension is adjustable each time you reset it. Dailing is easy and fast. Most of the time, you can dial the strings into tune just by the amount of wheel turning tension you put on the strings. This capo is the best!!! Especially good as I use open tunings, and change the keys by moving up and down the neck with a capo.

                            The Dunlop Johnny Cash (besides being in black) has two options: for a slightly curved fretboard or for a flat fretboard.
                            Have used this for years without any problem--lots of performances. Like all capos, eventually, the rubber starts to have established grooves in it, so I might have to replace this eventually.
                            Don't hesitate--price is great anyway!
