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.

Easily the best quality capo for it's price. Looks great on any guitar. I came across SHUBB a few months back, when my capo finally gave out after 12 years. I bought the C1 stainless steel version of this same capo which made a good transition between several of my guitars, but I had to adjust it any time I went to use it on my Les Paul which has a 50s neck and fretboard.
Ordered off of Amazon and it shipped the same day.

I just got it in the mail yesterday, and it snapped right on the LP with a firm click. I didn't even have to adjust it. It looks amazing in use... and is just the best and simplest design.
You know when you feel it lock into place that it is staying there no matter what. Don't forget to remove it when you guitar is resting. It's easy to forget it's there. Forget the oversized medieval torture device style capos... this never effects my fret thumb or forefinger--
exactly what I was looking for in a capo.
I will have these 2 for a long time, and I'm a Shubb guy from this day forward.

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!

The main impression after using this capo is that it made my guitar better - more playable versus the spring types I've used. It more accurately puts pressure (which is adjustable via the screw on the bottom) on the strings at the fret so that intonation is right on. Generally I don't have to retune any strings and the sound is clearer. Add to that the smaller, slim profile where it rests on the fret, leaving more room on the fret board for my fingers, and I think it makes me a better guitar player. I'm also impressed with the shiny nickel finish that matches the finish on my tuners. It's sort of like jewelry for my guitar but I also like the solid feel of it in my hand before even putting it on the guitar. I wish I had tried a Shubb long ago when I first heard people recommend it.
