Subject: Tell me about capos
This is a question for all you Mudcatters who are knowledgeable about guitars and banjos.

I recently had my Martin D15 set up nicely with bone nut and saddle, ebony bridge pins, and better strings. It really sounds great.

When I put the capo on (Shubb), I lose a lot of what I just gained. It seems the rubbe covered clamp on the capo deadens the string to a marked degree. Same thing on my Banjo.

Anyone have thoughts on this. Jeepman
