Has anyone else tried the new mountain dulcimer capo from Walworth Capos in Chelsea, Michigan? Its unique design uses side pressure similar to other mountain dulcimer capos, but has a very unique lever that makes it very quick and easy to install and remove the capo once it has been set for the proper width of the fretboard.
My neighbors obtained one of these capos recently from the manufacturer and gave it to me as a gift for teaching their daughter to play the dulcimer years ago. It is one of the easiest dulcimer capos to install on the fretboard, as it only takes the flip of a lever.
It's a little pricey as far a dulcimer capo goes. The list price is $44.95. But if you frequently remove and install the capo during a performance or during practice, the added expense may be worth your while.
It is lighter than the Dudley Brass Capo and easier to install than the Ewing style capos. Take a look at Elderly Instrument's Website to see a picture of one.
