A fantastic alternative to railroad spikes or other fifth string capos, Earl’s 5th string capo wraps around the back of the banjo neck via an elastic strap (aka suspender). It holds on to the fretboard near the 1st string and has a rubberized foot that pins the fifth string down wherever you want it.

Friday Featured E-Store Item: Earl’s 5th String Suspender Capo
On July 28, hundreds of folks gathered in Southminster church to celebrate and support the Ottawa Folklore Centre. Over 600 wonderful people paid $25 dollars to listen to some of the best music ever to come out of the nation’s capital. Sneezy Waters, Lynn Miles, Chris MacLean, James Keelaghan, Terry Tufts, Kathrine Briggs, Finest Kind, Bill Garrett, Doug McArthur, Paul Hornbeck, James Stephens, Rebecca Campbell and, of course, wee Rowan Meyer, our busking piper. We had a silent auction that raised thousands of dollars. Friends of the Folklore Centre donated more through buying virtual tickets and just sending in cheques.
I was, am and will always be so overwhelmed by your offerings…all of you.
