  1. can any one who plays with a capo on a 5 string bass (i only wanna put the capo over the ADGC strings) could u tell me what make u use!


    mods, please move this to wear it would gain most reply's....tnx
  2. a Kyser capo would do the trick, just capo those strings and not the E string. You can also cut the rubber and have some strings capoed and others not, I work with a guitarist that uses several capos, 1, 2 or 3 at a time, rather than retuning.
