The mechanical design is brilliant, and marvelously simple.
However, for my Taylor 615, it appears that the radius may be slightly off and the clamping bar seems just a TINY bit on the short side. My bass E string seems to get pulled slightly sharp, and if I'm not very careful about positioning, one or the other of the outside strings will slip out from under the rubber on the bar when I start playing.
Once I readjust the tuning with the capo on, I seem to be able to move it up and down the neck without further retuning, but the higher up I go, the easier for the outer strings to miss the bar. I have to retune when removing the capo again.
I was really hoping the radius would be spot on, and that with careful clamping force adjustment, the capo wouldn't pull the guitar out of tune. So though this capo is very nice, I'm still searching for my "perfect 5."
I was looking for an upgraded capo - one that was quality made, allowed customization of the tension, easy to use, and also - - small. The Shubb capo delivers on all fronts! This capo is very small and in a very good way. The capo is only 4 cm wide and doesn't have any unnecessary design to it. When you have it on your guitar it sort of blends in and doesn't distract from the look and feel of your guitar.
All I did to initially set up was open the package, make sure my guitar was properly tuned, applied the capo to my guitar by clamping it on, then i adjusted the knob accordingly (with a tuner) to get the right tension. And that's it! I tested the capo on different frets and I was properly in tune to each one of them. It looks sturdy, and it's not going to move when I'm playing.
If you are serious about playing and SOUNDING GOOD and in tune, I would just avoid using any capos that don't allow you to change the tension. You are always going to be slightly out of tune no matter what you do.
And as I side note, it is awesome that Shubb sells capos in different colors / finishes. I was looking specifically for something black to match my Taylor 114ce ebony fretboard - so I went with the Capo Noir C1K. I love that the capo just sort of blends in with my guitar and looks like it belongs with my other equipment.
I like the black version of this capo (the capo noire I believe it's called) as it is more discreet and looks better in my opinion, although I do use a stainless steel one often, too.
Either way, for the price, and the adjustability if these capos, you can't go wrong. If you need to quick change the capo position, pick up a Kaiser quick-adjust capo as well but for most of us, this is all we need.

So I tried the Shubb based on the reviews and I am thrilled with it. The Kyser never sound this clean even when it was new. The strings ring clean, clear, crisp...no muddiness whatsoever.
Based on the picture I wasn’t quite sure how it retained the setting for your neck, but it’s very easy. You put it on the first time and flip up the clamp the braces the back of the neck...then you tighten or loosen the turn screw… and you are done. After that all you do is flip the clamp up/down to take it on/off. I don't see anything on it that would cause finish wear either.
It’s attractive with an added bonus of a low profile on the fret board, making it much easier to play close to it.
I paid about the same for this as I did for the Kyser, & while the Kyser was Ok, this is a much better product for the money. Go for it, you won’t regret it.
