I am an eclectic guitarist that likes a lot of options. I find that by using the spider capo, I am able to be versatile. I did have a concern that it would damage and harm my guitar, or that it would not be strong enough to hold down the strings, but it works great. I have no complaints.

When I first bought this product I was quite taken with it. My creativity took different routes than it would have with standard or various open tunings due to different string lengths.. As a pro player of 40 plus years, I have a fairly nice collection of 20+ guitars. I began to use this on my favorite acoustic, a very old Taylor, I do some light guitar restoration, use my guitars with caution and take very good care of my instruments. Imagine my shock and disappointment when I took this device off my guitar after playing with it one day to find several deep gouges in the neck. The padding at each side of the capo had either slipped out of place or compressed over use enough to allow some metal parts of the capo to dig into the wood. A nice idea that needs work - enough so as to not damage fine, valuable vintage instruments. From now on I will stay with Kyser capos and trim the rubber in them to achieve the same result without permanently damaging my guitars. I would not recommend this unless you want to use it on a beater guitar that you don't care about.

Handy for some alternate and experimental tunings

By Robert

from Delmar, NY

Comments about Creative Tunings Universal Capo - SpiderCapo:

Product works as described- in lieu of retuning strings up/down you can place and adjust to create the same effect. It does take a little care to install on your fingerboard and moving it up and down the neck is not a quick adjustment, but it does save buying or modifying a bunch of six string lever capos. It is fun to experiment with ! You tube has some instructional videos about using this capo.

Spider Capo

By D. J.

from Denver, Colorado

Comments about Creative Tunings Universal Capo - SpiderCapo:

The Spider Capo is very easy to use and a fun tool for creating a simple way to accompany your own melody line. I use it on my classical guitar and it works great! I haven't tried it on my acoustic guitar yet, but I am not worried because it adjusts so easily.

SpiderCapo

By Charlie

from East Meadow, NY

Comments about Creative Tunings Universal Capo - SpiderCapo:

pros-If you use it on 1 guitar it's fine. I like that you can fine tune the string when you go down the neck without turning the tuning pegs. (you know when you move the capo, some times you have to retune some of the strings.) With the spider you can fine tune the string on the capo by moving it up or down a little from the finger handles. Cons- If you have different width necks on several guitars it takes a little time to get the finger handles of the capo over the strings. And even if it's the same guitar and you go down to the 7th fret or more a little adjustment may be needed. All said great idea, opens many doors for song writers. 4 stars because of the time adjusting between guitars. So just buy 2! Peace

My "Spin" on the Spider Capo

By Dan Leonhardt

from Niles, MI

Comments about Creative Tunings Universal Capo - SpiderCapo:

I have owned the "Third Hand Capo" for years now and it has worked very well for me but the Spider Capo intrigued me with its design. I have had it for about a month now and find that the way it mounts on the neck requires little or no tuning adjustment compared to the Third Hand. I also find the "fingers" on the Spider are cool as you can engage or disengage individual strings while playing. The product seems to be constructed and thought out very well. I was a bit concerned about the potential damage to the neck of my Taylor 514CE the way it clamps from side to side but after using it, those fears are gone. I look forward to all the possibilities using the Spider Capo.

Read Instructions

By Isaiah George

from Sherman, Texas

Comments about Creative Tunings Universal Capo - SpiderCapo:

Overall, great little capo that opens up tons of options. I read some reviews complaining of gouges in the neck of the guitar, well the capo has tabs that go over the top of the fretboard to secure the capo and like most guys i almost threw away the instructions, but first i looked at them. On the bottom in big red letters it basically says make sure you put the tabs on the fretboard or it will damage the neck of your guitar. So before you pass over this capo because of complaints of damage remember that reading the directions can be vital in the success of a product.

Comments about Creative Tunings Universal Capo - SpiderCapo:

Place the SpiderCapo on the 2nd fret. Press the D, G and B strings down to make an A chord. All the fingerings for the chords G, C, F and D work (though they will be 1 step higher). All Barre Chords and lead links still work, and you can work the key of A in amazing ways. I have found incredible uses for the SpiderCapo.

    Great gift for someone who likes to play all different kinds of songs. I got this for my boyfriend and I wasn't sure if he had one already. Turns out he didn't and never knew this existed. He was so excited when he tried it out and heard the difference. I would highly recommend this Capo! I'm actually considering buying the XL one that covers more strings! Thanks Guitar Center for making my purchase experience an easy and stress free one!

    Comments about Creative Tunings Universal Capo - SpiderCapo:

    Great tool for not only going from standard tuning to alternate, but the reverse as well. With the flipping of a few "fingers" you can easily "re-tune" your guitar accordingly. Absolute genius device, especially when the "Harmonik Gloves" are added to it. Love this and will be advocating to all of my musician friends whenever and wherever possible.
