The original, most popular, and still the best. Ron Ewing built and designed these back in 1975, and they're still going strong!

He was really getting into traditional Irish and Appalachian fiddle tunes, and needed to play in a variety of keys. Capoing a dulcimer is a quick and easy way to change keys and modes without retuning, as well as having several playing advantages over the traditional modal tunings. Much easier than retuning every time you want to change keys or modes. You can't play everything in D, after all!

They have a maple body with a walnut or cherry overlay for extra strength, hard rubber padding and clamp block, and a decorative brass dot and thumbscrew. 

Choose from Walnut or Cherry.

A standard capo's adjustable range is 1 1/4 to 1 5/8".

Note - on some dulcimers with high action or uneven frets, the capo will not work properly until these problems have been corrected.
