      Shubb

      The choice of millions of musicians worldwide.

      The Shubb Original C-Series Steel String Capo is slightly curved and 2" across. This caop fits almost all acoustic steel-string and electric guitars.

      The Original C-Series steel string capo features a patented locking action that provides an unrivaled 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 C-Series 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's, so the Shubb Original C-Series Steel String Guitar Capo doesn't pull strings off center. As a result, no retuning is necessary.

        After reading mixed reviews on leading makes and models of trigger capos, the Schubb Original C Series model seemed to be the logical, more sensible alternative.

        A question for all you acoustic guitar-playing worship leaders: Just how quickly do you need to apply a capo, really? Unless you just got to have a capo that you can apply to the headstock of your guitar, you really ought to give the Schubb serious consideration. Really. So maybe it would take me two seconds longer to pull a Schubb from my back pocket and apply it to the fingerboard of my guitar as it would for you to undo a trigger capo from the headstock of your guitar and apply it to the fingerboard. Maybe. Do you really move from one song to another in a different key that quickly?

        Consider Schubb. Seriously.
        I decided to go with this capo after reading reviews that the slightly more expensive Deluxe S series was not as good as Original C-Series, which sounded good to me as I had used a similar model Schubb on my acoustic guitar in the mid- to late-80s to great satisfaction. In fact, my wife still has the same model for her 12-string acoustic. The fact that the C-Series is available in Black Chrome was all I needed to know to go with a Schubb for my Carvin AE185.
        The packaging for the black chromed capo is labeled "Capo Noir ...C1k" with an image of a black cat on the backside.
        For you acoustic guitarists who aren't particularly inclined to consider a Schubb over a trigger capo, consider the following: a) a Schubb is fully adjustable, allowing for minimal pressure to be applied to any fret with virtually no retuning; b) a Schubb isn't going to blow apart on stage as a trigger capo might; c) a Schubb may be placed away from the upper fretwire of the fret to which the capo is applied and thus, substantially out of the way of your fingers and without causing any string buzz; d) unlike a trigger capo that applies the same amount of pressure regardless of which fret it's situated on (i.e., regardless of neck width), a Schubb may be finely adjusted to apply only the amount of pressure actually needed; e) a Schubb is substantially smaller than a trigger capo and while it can't be quickly affixed to and left on the headstock, it doesn't hang out from or beneath the neck, plus there are things called pockets into which a Schubb may be kept as well as music stands upon which a Schubb may rest until needed.
        In writing this review soon after receiving the capo, I can't speak for its longevity, though indications are that it's built just as well, if not better than, the Schubb I used in the 80s and thus, I presume it will last a good long time.
        Considering the quality, its utility, and its features, it's seems priced about right.

        It seems well-made, but I don't like the way it works on my guitar. I do a lot of bends and the strings never fully recover, no matter how loose I adjust the thumb screw. Plus It's a pain to adjust it everytime I put it on. I am sticking with clip-on capos.

                    Fits very snug and doesn't lose it's tightness. Should've bought this one to begin with rather than messing with cheaper ones.

                    Although I would like to consider myself a professional musician, I cannot truthfully do so. Yet, the splendor and seeping greatness that comes out of this capo makes a two-week-guitarist like me feel like a god among men. How can one not feel as if they control underlings with this irresistibly shiny piece of guitaric wonder? This alone, my friends, should be reason enough to buy this capo. Not to mention, if you're a guy it helps you get the ladies. And if you're a girl, it can also help you get the ladies OR the men.

                      Comments about Shubb Original C-Series Steel String Guitar Capo:

                      After dealing with cheap poor quality capos for the last 10 years, I decided I needed a quality peice. I did many hours of research and came to the conclusion I really wanted a metal capo. I am a dedicated "buy American" type. With these two priorities lined up, the Shubb line of capos made the most sense. I settled on the C1b because of it's inexpensive price but quality build. I have not been disappointed. This capo is made of brass and is extremely solid even though it is lightweight and small. It doesn't get in the way of your hand while you are playing either (some cheap capos do). I have no regrets and would buy another if it was stolen. That said, this is probably the only reason I would need to buy another as I expect this to last most of the rest of my life.

                      The only negative is there is no easy way to attach it to your headstock when not in use etc. I just put it in my pocket. It hasn't come out of adjustment and it's quick to put on and take off - no wiggling or messing around to make sure you're in tune.

                          Just got it as a Christmas gift. I live the low profile. It doesn't rub my hand like the kyser does. The soft rubber covers the whole tip of it. This one works like normal on my 7.25 tele. Not sure what the difference would be then their vintage one if this works well on both.

                                  Comments about Shubb Original C-Series Steel String Guitar Capo:

                                  If you own a steel-string guitar and want the single best capo on the market, buy this one. Shubb also makes the best capos for 12-string guitars, banjos, nylon-string guitars, etc. If you go to the Shubb web site, there is an explanation about why these capos don't impact intonation as virtually all other designs do. I'm amazed anyone uses anything else.
