Gear SCPM-F Capo Flat
Advantages: Works a treat, does what it should
Over the years of playing both acoustic and electric guitars I have acquired, as will have most players, a wide range of devices and gadgets to enhance the various aspects of playing, create new sounds and basically to have fun. One of the most use gadgets has been my range of capos and this Gear's model reviewed within, is perhaps my favourite of the lot.
I have never really used a capo until about 2 years into my playing and this is the third capo in my collection. Each tends to be used on my various different guitars but I have found myself using this on a wider range of guitars than some of my other capo's. Why? For sheer quality.
First things first, this Capo like most models will fit all types of guitar as it has an impressive adjustable strap meaning it can be tied around the neck of any guitar and fit comfortably. One huge selling point here is the fact that because the Capo is so well made, so sturdy and so reliable you can trust it on any guitar whether it be acoustic or electric.
Indeed it is this sturdiness and reliability that makes the device such a joy to use. I have had capos in the past that have slipped, taken ages to tie and felt very slack but that's not the case here. The whole tying and attachment process is so simple and feels so safe you never need have the worry of a capo flying off or sliding mid-gig or during a practice sessions. It's so well crafted this simply will not happen.
As well as being secure the firm design means that the capo does exactly what it should and provide the right pressure on the strings in a balanced, even and firm way to produce the sounds you desire. In terms of consistency and achievement of that perfect sound I seek this hits all the boxes.
As well as catering for the fact that this costs a mere £13.99 in most places and you have a bargain piece of quality gear that you can rely upon to provide you with the best sound and quality in any environment on any guitar.
Summary: A true market leader
