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 truly a great capo. Very well built using stainless steel and great roller-bearing design. This capo does not apply too much force on the strings (it's adjustable to personal preference). It has a very gentle clamping mechanism that requires little force to fret-the-neck. Noticed right away, that the tuning is not alternated (i.e. existing tuning does not go sharp when this capo is used when properly adjusted).

          At this time, I really do not use capo devices too much, but after using this one, it is the best capo thus far I tried. When you need a capo, this one is very consistent in-my-opinion.

            Comments about Shubb Deluxe S Series Steel String Capo:

            After you adjust the ball for the correct tension it's easy to clip on and doesn't make the guitar go out of tune. I like that it has a small low profile without anything sticking out to get in your way while playing.

                Don't waste your money on an elastic-strap capo.
                This Shubb was recommended to me by a friend, and it was worth the cost. Well made, easy to use and does what is is supposed to do. Musician's Friend price was good, shipping was free, and it arrived earlier than I expected.
