      A lightweight, locking-action capo for banjos, mandolins, and bouzoukis that won't bend your strings or pull them off center.

      The Shubb Lite lightweight aluminum capo is for you if you're into reducing the weight of your banjo, mandolin or bouzouki.

      What makes the lightweight Shubb capo so special? For one thing it has an ingenious design: its patented locking action provides unrivaled power, speed, accuracy, and ease of use. One smooth flip of the lever locks the Shubb Lite capo securely in place and removes it just as quickly.

      Additionally, the Shubb capo doesn't create tuning problems. Its soft, resilient rubber is specially designed to work just like a fingertip, so the capo doesn't bend the strings over the frets. Its closing action is just like your hand, so the Lite capo doesn't pull the string off center. As a result, no retuning is necessary!

      Is a lightweight capo for you? Maybe, or maybe not. Some people associate a certain amount of heft with quality, and feel that weight is necessary to properly do the job. If that describes you, then a lightweight capo isn't your style. But for years, Shubb has been aware of another school of thought wherein guitarists have been removing mass from their Shubb capos in an attempt to reduce their weight.

      One thing is certain: if you often carry your capo around in your pocket, your trousers will prefer the Shubb Lite! The Shubb Lite capo for nylon-string guitars is made from aerospace-quality aluminum and is nickel plated. It weighs less than one ounce.

      Since 1980, Shubb capos have set the standard against which all others can be measured. Shubb capos are the first choice of more than a million musicians worldwide. Serious guitarists will settle for no less.

      Precisely machined and carefully hand assembled, the Shubb Lite capo is manufactured without compromise. Snapping it solidly onto a guitar neck and then removing it will instantly confirm the capo's reputation of excellence.

      Get the capo that doesn't require you to re-tune after playing when you order today.

        Comments about Shubb Lightweight Aluminum Capo for Banjo:

        This capo is easy to transition from one key to another, but if the capo is too tight it may alter your tuning. Especially if your action is high.

        It certainly is light weight...

        By Kevin Kaneta

        Comments about Shubb Lightweight Aluminum Capo for Banjo:

        I'll probably end up using a different capo. I'm not sure I can make this one work for me.
        I use Shubb capos on my guitars and have always liked them. But this banjo capo is made for banjos with a thinner neck. For the capo to stay locked on, I have to tighten the adjuster more than normal. Doing so sharpens the overall tuning.
        Light weight aluminium.
        This score would have been higher had the capo fit properly.
