What are Capo Spikes?
Capo Spikes enable you to ‘CAPO’ your 5th string and play your banjo in higher keys simply by pushing your 5th string underneath one of the installed capo spikes. You will also need to place a ‘regular type capo’ on your fingerboard. Eg. When your banjo is in standard tuning and tuned to an open ‘G’ chord and you want to play say in open ‘A’  you will need to put a regular capo on your 2nd fret and also need to ‘CAPO’ your 5th string… So, when you have a Capo Spike fitted to your 7th fret you can push your 5th string underneath the capo spike to raise the pitch of your 5th string to ‘A’.

We recommend spikes to be installed on your 7th fret (enabling the key of A) and 9th fret (enabling the key of B) and 10th fret (enabling the key of C)
Spikes are much neater than other 5th string capo types, they do not get in the way of your playing… but are always there when you need them.

Spikes were pioneered and used by the legendary Earl Scruggs and are used by most professional banjo players of today.
THE FITTING OF SPIKES WILL NOT INVALIDATE YOUR DEERING BANJO WARRANTY
