Dulcimer Capo

Item Number 2310031

Regular price $24.00

When you play the dulcimer, you will often run into a song that just doesn't "sit right" in DAD or DAA. Adding one of our mountain dulcimer capos to your instrument changes you instantly to a different tuning, without the hassle of adjusting your strings. Instead of playing in just one key, you can easily add variety and versatility to your dulcimer playing with our "easy on, easy off" capo. Made specifically for a mountain (Appalachian, lap) dulcimer, our capo for sale won't hurt your dulcimer's finish. It is easy to use, sounds great, and is highly recommended for all players, beginning through advanced.

This capo is made in the USA, and will accommodate fretboards as narrow  as 1 5/16", and as wide as 1 9/16".

It does the job but...............

It works. I will say that. But the screw to tighten it up on the fret board is not that easy to work with. It's rough. Not sure what the solution is, a knob, something easier to grip and turn it with maybe. It's a tight space to work in.

Works as intended!

This capo works great! It's small and fits the fretboard very well on the dulcimers we have that were made from kits. Have no complaints!

folkcraft capo

I like the capo very much. Its easy to use, has a low profile, and works well. My only concern is because it,s small, it looks like it might not last long, but thats just my opinion. It is so much better then my previous capo though.

Works but issues

Appears to be a good capo. I’m new to using and learning how to use a capo. Mine seemed to come apart and then had to figure out how put the screw and wood together again but it seemed to still do the job.

Works but a little disappointed

Capo works but the quality of the workmanship is not at the level I expected. The slide that is moved by the knob is very difficult to position. There is a rubber gasket that sits on the strings and has a channel cut out to allow the slide to move along the capo. The gasket is mounted off center from the matching channel in the capo top and that causes severe binding of the slide piece. The gasket can not be repositioned without taking the capo apart and I am not sure it could be repositioned without compromising the capo. The capo does work but is more difficult to use than it should be.
