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.
What makes the Shubb capo so special? For one thing, its ingenious design: a patented locking action which 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.
And the Shubb capo doesn't create tuning problems. Its soft, resilient rubber is specially designed to work just like a fingertip, so it doesn't bend the strings over the frets. Its closing action is just like your hand, so the strings aren't pulled off center. As a result, no re-tuning is necessary!
Precisely machined of brass, nickel plated, and carefully hand assembled, a Shubb capo is manufactured without compromise. Simply holding one in your hand conveys a sense of quality. Snapping it solidly onto a guitar neck, and then removing it, all within about one second, will confirm its reputation for excellence.
This Shubb Noir Capo is constructed of long-lasting brass, then plated in elegant black chrome. The C1K model is made for 6-string acoustic or electric guitars that use steel strings. If you have a 12-string acoustic or electric, or an extra wide neck with steel strings, use the C3K. For banjo, use the C5K.
