Thread Name: 5th String Capo
Subject: RE: 5th String Capo

I had a sliding capo on my banjo and had to take it off. As soon as I started frailing at a good clip with volume, the string would invariably slip out from under the sliding capo. I went back to the spikes and haven't had a problem with this since. I think that's why the old-time players like the spikes.
