Researched around for a highly recommended capo and the result is the Shubb. This is a capo that while is not easily adjustable to slide up and down like other spring types, it's a great capo and very durable in construction and material. Like a good guitar that is well cared for, this is something that's great to hand down to the next generation.

Simple, well-executed products like this are hard to come by these days. These Shubb capos are low-profile and elegant, substantially smaller than that other popular capo (Kyser). They include a tension adjustment that gives me confidence that I am not applying too much pressure to my frets. The high-quality rubber pieces (that have yet to show signs of wear) instill similar confidence.

While some prefer the quick scissor-style of the Kysers, I like the action of these much better. The Shubb has a lever in the back and applies no pressure to the neck until this piece is engaged. This means that the capo can be positioned fully (and easily) and *then* pressure is applied all at once evenly across the neck. Because of this, bending strings and intonation problems are not an issue here.

Since many keep their capos parked on their headstocks, I will note that the Shubb does *not* fit on the headstock of my Seagull guitar. If you know anything about Seagull, though, you probably know that they make a non-standard funny-looking headstock. It fits just fine on the neck of Segaull, of course. I have also successfully parked it many times on the more standard headstock shapes of most other guitars.

All in all, you won't be disappointed. Really great piece of kit. You can visit the Shubb website where they've got a bunch of good info on their capos.

Simple, compact, well constructed, easy to use, and sounds good; all things you would look for in a capo.

This is the original Shubb capo, designed for most acoustic guitars with metal strings. The Shubb website describes the huge range of specific capos they make, each with their own specialized use. The C1 is probably the most universal of all the models. This fits a Les Paul Traditional 08 (Gibson Les Paul Traditional Plus Electric Guitar, Heritage Cherry Sunburst), a PRS SE Custom 22 Guitar, Grey Black with Tremolo Bridge, and Epiphone LP Special II Les Paul Collection Electric Guitar, Vintage Sunburst electrics. The primary use is for a Laguna acoustic.

Follow the simple instruction card included with the capo to adjust the tension. It's key to not get too much tension.

We've had trouble figuring out where to park this capo. Mostly it goes in a pocket. Once the capo is adjusted to fit the neck, it doesn't clamp tight on the headstock. Not a huge deal, but a consideration.

I've only been playing guitar for a few months and came across sheet music (Johnny Cash) I wanted to play. Most of the songs were written for capo so I purchased this product. The price was right and I received the product in just a couple of days using standard delivery. It's easy to use and is small enough such that it doesn't interfere with finger positions on the fret board. And it looks good too!

If you are searching for a capo that only uses just enough pressure and does not have a spring like a bear trap. Well . . .this is the one. You can dial in the pressure you need in a matter of seconds, without ever stretching strings. One of the best available.

It usually takes two hands to install, but that's not a big deal seeing you can do this in seconds. Considering the fact that it will not cause your guitar to go out of tune, never gets in the way of your hands, very compact, looks good and is made to last. I think these are attributes that a guitarist can live with. I have one for each guitar I own and I wouldn't consider another.

Schubbs look a little odd as far as capos go. But actually, they are a mechanical phenomenon and made so well. When I bought my first Schubb (this brass one) back in 1985, I knew it was not the cheapest one on the market but just looking at it made a lot of sense to me and it looked SOOOOO durable. I was sold.

I still have my Schubb brass capo and it functions beautifully across many of my dreadnought guitars. I've never changed the rubber piece (even though I think they exist) because I have not had to. The brass is tarnished these days but the capo is beautifully functional and does it's job without any extra buzz of sound artifacts. I've used Schubbs for 6 and 12-string guitars and highly recommend them.\

Pros:

- made of quality materials and lasts a long time.
- replacable rubber option (if you need to)
- comes in many types and finishes (nickel, stainless, 12-string, classical, 6-string, etc).

Cons:

- Takes a little getting used to (the adjustment screw).
- not a particularly quick capo to change (there are faster ones on the market these days).

Schubb is definitely a classic and if you love them, you really love them and stick by the design and believe in it. There are cheaper and more expensive capos on the market. For the money, this one is worth it. A design marvel.
