I've got a dunlop trigger capo, it's well built and cost me about 12 bucks, I think.

Shubb is good, G7 is good but pricey. get something adjustable.

I've got a Kyser trigger style capo. Got it for about $A30, which is what, $US2.50? :P

Anyhoo, is great and am glad I went with the quick-change type.

I paid $20 for my Dunlop trigger at a mom and pop store.
$6 for a Kyser thumbscrew at GC.

adjustable tension so you don't throw your tuning out of whack.
