I have lost my capo! >:| I can't image where it has gone.

So, I guess I need to get me a new one. I have a generic one, but I don't like it so much as it has the "death grip" as the clerk told me when I bought the good one that I lost.

Here is what I had:

The music store clerk recommended it because it doesn't "put a death grip", as she said, on your fretboard. It has an adjustable clamp, so it doesn't squeeze the strings against the frets any harder than necessary.

Then, I found these:

It seems like the benefits of that capo is that you can move it with one hand, and you can match the fretboard radius. However, some video reviews I saw says it has the "death grip".

Any thoughts?

I found it!

Just by dumb luck, really. I wasn't even looking for it. Ha!

Woohoo glad you found it. I never ever use capos, but I like the idea of the Thalia capos. They've done a really good job at marketing themselves.
