Friday Featured E-Store Item: Earl’s 5th String Suspender Capo Earl's 5th String Suspender Capo

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.
