Donner DC-2 Guitar Capo
The Donner DC-2 appeared on our recommended list for Guitar Capos from September 2019 until September 2020 when it was replaced due to being out-ranked by other capos.
The Donner DC-2 is yet another value oriented capo that scores reasonably well.
It is wide enough for 12-string guitars.
It has a high level of clamping strength however this can cause notes go sharp.
If you need a spring-loaded capo with enough tension to clamp down on even the highest of string action, the Donner DC-2 is a good pick especially if you're looking for a budget option.
If you use instruments with large frets and low action, the clamping force may be too strong and introduce tuning issues.
