I was using a Kyser capo for years right before buying the Shubb. I still have the Kyser capo and I still think it's a good capo.

The Kyser capo works very well. However, some drawbacks to the Keyser capo are that they are bulky and you have to squeeze them pretty hard to get them on. Kyser capos also get grooves in the sleeves if they are left on the guitar neck for even a short time.

I'm looking at my Kyser capo right now and I see that the frame is made of hollow sheet metal and the part of the frame above the spring and pivot that comes to a stop against the side of the neck of the guitar, if you push the capo on too far, has a piece of black tape covering the open sheet metal frame. In other words, this piece of tape is all that protects the neck of the guitar against the sheet metal frame. This is the only part of the Kyser capo that seems rather cheap. However, I have to say that this hasn't caused me any trouble yet. But I have to wonder where I would get another piece of this tape if I needed it.

The Shubb capos don't show any cheapness and are very compact, streamlined and solid. They snap onto the neck of the guitar effortlessly, and the tension adjustment is effortless (I adjusted mine with no effort within seconds of first putting it onto my guitar) and the Shubb seems to hold the strings just right to prevent buzzing. It takes very little tension on the capo to make it work well. The Shubb capos have an overall very high quality look and feel to them. They look like they would last forever.

If there is anything about the Shubb that could be improved, it would probably be that they could be a little wider. I have a Martin HD-28 guitar and I noticed that I was taking up almost the entire width of the Shubb capo when I got up to about the 7th fret and there wasn't a whole lot of width left even on the lower frets. In case anyone's wondering, there are famous musicians who actually do capo up that high. I haven't really had any problems with the width of the Shubb capo, though. I've also seen where it's possible to buy new sleeves for the Shubb capos if you'd want to.

I have to give the Shubb capo 5 stars. I wish everything was built this well.

I'm not sure about everyone else but this product came in with a bent wheel. Took me an hour to realize why this capo wouldn't clip on to the fret. The wife threw this capo out the window and everything in the house is good again.

    I bought it because I was tired of the Keyser capo detuning my guitar every time I used it. It's relatively inexpensive and it works.

              Comments about Shubb Deluxe S Series Steel String Capo:

              Shubb S series is built like a tank and once you are familiar is easy to apply one-handed. But the best feature is the adjustable tension. I play different gauges on different guitars (Strat, Tele, 335). The problem with that is a "single tension" capo can pull lighter guage strings out of tune. The thumb tension wheel lets you dial tension up or down on the fly so strings make "just enough" contact with the fret but don't pull sharp. That's better for your frets and better for your tone. I keep one in each case and one in my pocket.

                The Shubb S1 capo has been my goto capo for quite a few years now. There are many more expensive ones, but none of them perform any better than the Shubb.
                Great product overall. Simple design wins every time!
