The pencil and rubber band isn't working too well, so will that ^ one from Amazon work with my cheap acoustic?

That's ok but I would get a Dunlop trigger or Kyser Quik Change. They both cost a little more ($10-$15) but I think you'd be more pleased with either of those.

good and cheap are words that normally dont work well together.

fortunately, that capo is a good one. I use the same thing.
get a new one tho; you dont want someone elses abuse for so inexpensive a thing.

I have two - a Shubb and a Dunlop Trigger - the Dunlop has a longer area, it's ideal for acoustic or 12-string, while I prefer the Shubb for Electric....

an added bonus of the Dunlop trigger is that the spring is so strong it's ideal for building hand strength up - I used it for that very purpose a few days before the plaster came off my recently-broken arm.....

:D :D :D

I have that one too, in the begining it was really tight to clap on things and clap off, but now it has gotten almost too lose...i'd go with the bit more expensive dunlop, the capo will last, and it's worth it

I'd go with a shubb or even the new planet waves aluminum one

They are $10 more expensive, but why spend the money on guitar, amp, effects, strings, setup, nut and saddle if you are just going to have a cheap capo pull you out of tune?

If you haven't bought any strings you don't need a capo - problem solved
