As a professional classical and flamenco guitarist with over 21 years of experience, I've tried a LOT of capos. Here is my absolute favorite capo of all time and still at the top of the list for 2024.
At this point in my music career, I've tried well over 20 different kinds of capos and always settle on the same Shubb CK2. What I love about this capo is that it's discrete, very easy to use, and presses the strings evenly. The last thing a capo needs to be is complex and gigantic. Throughout my years of comparing capos, the Shubb CK2 has been consistently reliable and has lasted me years. In fact, I still use the same capo from 20 years ago and now I have one in every guitar case plus one in my studio for practice! This capo is the best! (*Also comes in brushed silver or chrome)
There are 5 capos that tend to compete with my favorite above: The traditional luthier capos, the strap capos, the clamp capos, the quick-release capos, and the dial capos. These 5 are perfectly fine but for me, the Shubb capo above is the clear winner. Here is a list of the 4 capos I recommend in case you'd like to try them:
