        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 have 5 different guitars, 1 Classical and others are steel string, "narrow neck". I find that my 2 dreadnaught's are too wide for the capo to work on frets 7 or above. On my Hummingbird it won't work at 5-6 or above. Even the frets where it does work, I have to be exact when putting it on as there is little room for error (1/8 inch play room, I/16th above and 1/16 below). The one I used to have but lost, didn't seem to have this problem. I could get one for my wide neck, classical and use that on my narrow neck but it would interfere with my finger placement close to the capo.

          Comments about Shubb Deluxe S Series Steel String Capo:

          This is the second capo that I have owned . It is easy to use, and won't damage your guitar. It is sturdy and gives even pressure across all strings. No buzzing and is adjustable. The first was a Planet waves and after a few months of light use it stopped working. You can't go wrong with this Deluxe Capo. I have used this capo for about a month on my Fender Acoustic and think it's Great!

                I used one of those a friend had recently and fell in love with it. I get less string buzz and it takes up less space allowing my fingers to fret better. I don't have a 12 string guitar anymore but maybe short on the wider necks.

                      I was using a clamp type capo which constantly knocked my strings out of tune. I switched to this one and the guitar stays in tune with the capo on EVERY TIME. I don't know why other capos don't work as well as this one but they don't.

                        Best capo on the market (I've had quite a few others). Makes it possible and easy to micro adjust the tension for any (not too wide) neck and string gauge. No fret buzz ever! Great sound compared to other capos.

                          What I like best is the way you can adjust it easily from one guitar to another. Also, the way the cushion put just enough pressure on the strings to properly change the notes but doesn't put you out of tune.
