The sound of the 5th string defines the 5 string banjo.
Our 5th string capo maximises the sound potential of your instrument with a unique
side-tensioning action that enhances the sustain and provides a brighter timbre.
Other traditional capo designs are either dull sounding, cause the pitch to go sharp
and need retuning, "flop" around when struck or require costly installation holes
to be drilled in the banjo neck. The Banjo Highway 5th string capo solves these "historic"
problems with a modern, creative and acoustically better design.
