Excellent idea.attila57 wrote:Making your own capo - or cejilla - is not too difficult and very cost effective. Then you can have as many strings as you want. I can confirm that the Shubb 6-string flat capo can work on a 7-string instrument, depending on the flatboard width. For a simple 10-string cejilla you need a piece of rosewood or ebony, a piece of nylon G string, a violin tuning peg and some padding for the strings, a piece of leather or a strip of carbon rubber.
Shubb will make you a "Pinocchio" capo for little more than their standard one. It's the best deal in town, IMO. Just be aware that they only extend the part that goes over the strings, and they leave the back part at the length used for a six string. This shouldn't present a problem for a seven string, but the wider the fret-board gets, the less of the moon-shaped padding cups the back. I'm probably not expaining this well, but for a seven string, a Shubb Pinocchio should work beautifully (about $35 or $40).rojarosguitar wrote:I'm looking for a capodaster for my 7 strings flamenca. Is anybody aware of such a capodaster that would suite a 7 strings nylon guitar (I saw some for multistring alectric instruments with individually adjustable levers; Spider XL).
Advice much appreciated
