Eagle Claw 5th string capo for banjo

It appears that this set of 5th string capos for banjo has been on the market for a year or so, and doesn’t really qualify as a new product, but it was news to us when Stan Riddle contacted me about it recently, and we are passing it along on that note. The pitch is that this set of four removable “capos” allows a banjo player to raise the pitch of the 5th string without the need for any drilling into the wood of the neck or fingerboard.

Visit the Eagle Claw web site for some more details, though there doesn’t seem to be any pricing info to be found there.

If anyone has tried the Eagle Claw and has some comments to offer, we would be interested in hearing whether they work as advertised and whether having to keep track of several separate pieces is convenient. I’ll add updates should any user comments be provided.
