        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:

              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.

                    Been using Kyser capos forever and wanted to try something different. Kyser springs lasts a long time but will eventually break. Not a huge deal if you carry a replacement but, has left me without a usable capo in the middle of a set more than once. I've used the Shubb now on three gigs and really like it. Very smooth install and removal, adjustable, and quality construction. I do miss the Kyser convenience of being able to clamp it on the guitar head stock and mic stand when not in use. Anyway, still too early to tell but Shubb might be my new capo of choice.

                      The spring style capos are good. I do have some spring types and use them at times but this Deluxe S capo is the best. It's not likely you could improve on this. I like the fact that I can adjust the tension for any neck and string gauge. I have two for 6 string guitars and 1 for my 12 string guitars. I may purchase more to have for each case. It's not nice to be without a capo. Especially a Deluxe S.

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).
