Product Description


About this SHUBB C1 - Acoustic and Electric Quick Change Guitar Capo

This year Shubb's standard line of capos received its biggest tweak yet: we've upgraded our most popular models - the "C" series nickel plated capos - to include the design features formerly available only on our deluxe, stainless steel models. And the price remains the same!

Exciting new upgrade ... same old price.

When the Shubb capo was first introduced more than 30 years ago guitarists throughout the world fell in love with it. They're still in love with it today. We've given it a few tweaks through the years, but its basic mechanical principle remains the same: 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.
And the Shubb capo is BY FAR the best at not creating 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 it doesn't pull the string off center. As a result, no re-tuning is necessary!

Shubb C1 Quick Change Guitar Capo

By: on 10 April 2023
This well engineered, beautifully finished Shubb Guitar capo has been a great help to my Grandson who is in the early stages of learning to play the Guitar. Also knowing very little about guitars, I found the customer service and online professional advice received during purchase an unexpected pleasure. Thank you Artist guitars.

Great capo

I was heavily recommended this capo by a mate of mine, and I can see why. This capo is awesome, the ability to adjust how tight it sits is a big plus in my books, gives me so much control over the sound. Love the size as well, not a bulky capo so it's easy to manoeuvre around. Easy to clip on and set up. Love it

Not the first time I have bought from Artist Guitars, and on every occasion I have been delighted with the service. I mean Shubb is a trusted name and I expected good quality. But as before when I've bought from these people, the delivery was quick and the transactions was seamless.

Purchased the Shubb C1 capo as a replacement for my 20 year old Kyser capo. I really like the ease of use of the Shubb and the lack of spring type moving parts. Very happy with this capo. No tuning issues after fitting. Thanks for fast delivery, as always !!

Great Capo

This capo lives up to the claims. Because it uses less force than trigger style capos it requires less guitar retuning when it is used. I wouldn't go back to another style of capo now.

Shubb C1 - it just works!

The Shubb C1 is an upgrade to their original line and now features a rolling wheel mechanism, which does make the capo smoother to operate. Good design, strong and won't damage your guitar. I expect to be using this capo for a very long time.
