"Capos were in use throughout the 1800s. But probably not very much on banjos until the era of classic banjo music. They were a more common device for guitars. This design is centuries old and only used today by very traditional flamenco guitarists.…"

"Tom, what is the background on the capo? I like the looks of it. Do you make them? I have never used a capo on a banjo."

"Man, I pulled and pulled on it some more last night and it's finally holding a tune. I have to tune it a touch flat so it's on key when struck but boy is it a loud bass string makes my whole stomach vibrate and rumble"
