SHUBB C1 - Acoustic and Electric Quick Change Guitar Capo
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!
The Tech Features
Material: Metal and Rubber
Suits: Steel string acoustic guitars and most electric guitars (Doesn't suit - classical's, 12 strings or electric guitars with exceptionally flat fingerboards)
Great CapoBy: Adam Brett on 13 July 2020This 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!By: Jose Garcia on 29 April 2015The 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.
