From the manufacturer

Presenting the Shubb Standard Electric Guitar Capo C4

Well made and still affordable, the polished nickel finish and a host of other features continueally make the Shubb Standard Capo a best seller. Not to be outdone, the series has been upgraded to include the patented roller ball closure, making this not only the most affordable high-end capo on the market today, but the one with the smoothest action. Durability, reliability and affordability define Shubb Standard Capos.

Traditional Look

Distinctive Design

How It Works

Shubb Capos work on an 'over-center' locking principle. If you've used one, you know the feeling. As you close the capo onto the neck, it passes through a point of greatest resistance (the center), and then relaxes somewhat into its locked position. All Shubb Capos are designed to provide just the right amount of pressure applied in the closed position for the truest tone.

Innovative Design

It is a well-known fact that if a capo is too tight, it can stretch the strings out of tune. Most players understand that there is a 'just right' amount of pressure for best capoing, too. It is this basic thought premise that led Shubb to their original innovative designs. Most designs incorporate a unique over-center locking mechanism that 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.

Best for Intonation

And the Shubb capo is by far the best at eliminating the tuning problems that can occur when in use. 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 it doesn't pull the string off center. As a result, no re-tuning is necessary!

More about Shubb

The Shubb Capo Company began in California in 1974, when Dave Coontz and I collaborated to design and produce our own fifth string capo for banjo. Before that, I worked as a professional 5-string banjo player and teacher, and Dave was an auto mechanic and a banjo student of mine. One night at his lesson, I was talking about my dissatisfaction with existing methods of capoing the fifth string. I described an idea that I had for a fifth string capo that operated on a lever principle, so that it would provide sufficient pressure for a good tone, and ranted about how I couldn't get anyone in the music products trade interested in making one. Finally, he said 'If nobody else will make you one, I will.' From that conversation, the Original Banjo Capo was introduced. Soon after, that same innovative spirit was applied to the guitar capo and in 1980 the Original Shubb Guitar Capo was developed. From then on, capos were elevated to a whole new level. In 1998 the Shubb Deluxe pushed the envelope again. Many people thought that the original Shubb could not be improved, but with the Deluxe we introduced upgrades in materials, design, geometry and ergonomics. It became the flagship product of our line and continues to influence every new design we create.

Attention to Detail

What makes the Shubb capo so special?

For one thing, its ingenious design: its patented over-center 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. As a result, no re-tuning is necessary! Quality through and through, each capo is precisely machined and carefully hand assembled, and manufactured without compromise. Simply holding one in your hand conveys a sense of quality. Snapping it solidly onto a guitar neck or sliding up the 5-string of your banjo, in about one second, and then playing without having to retune will confirm its reputation for excellence.

  • Shubb capos are hand-made in the U.S.A from the finest materials available
  • Nickel-plated with dual lever and spring-loaded thumbscrew tension adjustment system
  • All contact points with the guitar are cushioned by, thick, resilient, replaceable pads.
  • 2 inch length and slightly curved
  • Fits most acoustic and electric steel string guitars
