Welcome to Elliott Capo

We make far more than the “one size fits all” capo. Every Elliott Capo is handcrafted of high quality stainless steel, then polished to a mirror finish. Elliott Capos use a unique self-centering saddle design that keeps the capo securely positioned in the center of the instrument neck and over the fingerboard. We use only genuine leather to pad the saddle seat and protect your instrument’s finish.

We build both guitar capos and banjo capos in a number of models and sizes, designed to fit the most common neck widths on guitars and banjos. Elliott banjo capos are available with either flat or radius top bars.

The Elliott Capo is a beautifully handcrafted work of art, designed to help you make better sounding art. With multiple models to choose from, there’s an Elliott Capo for everyone.

The J.D. Crowe Capo

The J.D. Crowe Capo is a banjo capo based on the McKinney capo Crowe has used for years. The J.D. Crowe banjo capo is hand crafted from high quality stainless steel, polished to a mirror finish, and available in two saddle designs.
