About this item:
Since 1980 the Shubb capo has set the standard against which all others must be measured. Its patented locking action provides an unrivalled combination of power, speed, accuracy and ease of use. One smooth flip of the lever locks it
securely in place ...and removes it just as quickly.
The Shubb capo is engineered for excellance:
- It presses the strings exactly like your fingertip using a specially designed rubber sleeve.
- It closes onto the neck just like your hand, not like a clothespin, a belt, a vice, or a pair of pliers. The strings are not pulled out of tune.
- Totally adjustable pressure: too much stretches strings, too litle muffles tone, just right is what you get from Shubb.
The S-series, top of the line Shubb capo, is made of stainless steel to resist wear and nicks. It will look as beautiful years from now as it does today.
The S-series capo is designed with an interior roller to further resist wear. The roller adds smoothness to the opening and closing action, ensures precise alignment, and adjusts on an arc making the closing action more uniform. All of this gives you smooth action, straight alignment, and less adjustment needed between thicker and thinner parts of the neck.
All this is why the Shubb Deluxe Capo is the confident choice of many top professionals.
The S1 is made for 6-string acoustic and electric guitars that use steel strings. If you have a nylon string guitar, use the S2. For 12 string guitars, use the S3. The S5 is for flat-fretboard banjo. Choose the S5r if your banjo has a radiussed fretboard.
