        I haven't found a capo yet that doesn't affect tuning in some way but the Planet Waves capo is the best of the ones I've tried. My Kyser capo definitely raises the pitch on my strings a fair amount. I also have a Shubb capo that raises the pitch as well, but not as much. I find that the Planet Waves capo raises the pitch on my strings the least of all, and sometimes not at all. For practice purposes then, I find I don't need to retune my guitar with the Planet Waves capo because it is "close enough" as far as I am concerned. It's easier to use than the Shubb and more compact than the Kyser which tends to stand out too much for me when it's on the guitar neck. There is one more brand of capo I might try in the future but for now Planet Waves is my first choice.

        I am highly satisfied with this purchase, and have already recommended it to friends. I recommend it to anyone looking for a quality capo that won't get in the way.

        The only other thing I need to state is that when you are not using this capo, you have to take it off and put it somewhere. With a spring loaded capo, I would clip it on the head of the guitar, in case I needed to used it again. I suppose you could find a way to make this one work in a similar fashion, but it would take longer to put it on and take it off, then adjust more to get it to fit over the neck again.
        The thumb screw used to tighten this capo, combined with the very fine threads, make for a pleasant experience when screwing it into place, and allow for very precise control of the tension on the strings. The bar covering the strings is just a bit longer than the fret board on my guitar, which means that it doesn't get in the way as much as all of the spring-loaded capos I have used in the past, especially when playing a B7, or any other chord which requires all fingers. The padding on the inside of the capo is soft enough not to damage the finish on any part of the guitar's neck, yet firm enough not to allow fret buzz.

        I gave it a 9 only because I couldn't choose a different size that was just a cm or so shorter, to avoid getting in the way completely. Otherwise, this is the best capo I have ever owned.
        I haven't owned this capo for very long, so I don't know what the durability or life expectency is, but the construction and selection of materials is high quality. I don't expect to have any problems with it any time in the near future.
        A really great product for the low price.

          Comments about Planet Waves NS Aluminum Screw Type Capo:

          After buying one of these babies for myself and loving the flexibility it gives me when playing music with friends, I have bought 3 as gifts. It's especially great for beginners, because it transforms the 3 or 4 chords they know into so many more, which is a great encouragement to keep playing! Highly recommended, great quality product at a low price.

                This capo is excellent for 12 string guitars...making constant re-tuning with moves a thing of the past. I liked it enough to buy two more for my backup guitars.

                  Out of the many capo's I've tried in my life this is absolutely the best. It's the only one that can adapt easily to the many different guitars I use, electric and acoustic. It's the only capo that really damps down the strings in an efficient manner, leading to an overall cleaner sound. I highly recommend it.
