Every guitarist can benefit from being open to other playing methods and styles. After all, versatility is what makes the difference between a good musician and a great one. For this reason, it only makes sense to own a capo, and more often than not, Shubb capos are a musician's go-to choice. In fact, many top recording artists are proud endorsers of Shubb capos, including Clint Black, The Bangles, and Lucinda Williams. Whether you're changing the key of a song or simply making a difficult chord easier to play, Shubb has the perfect capo waiting for you in this section.
When using a capo, it's important to keep a few things in mind before you place one on your instrument's neck. For one, try to attach it as close as possible to the metal fret. Also, you should make sure that it's on tight, but without bending any of your strings when it's clamped down. Of course, you'll also want to be positive that the one you apply to your guitar has been crafted with exceptional precision, and that's something you can always expect from Shubb.
Choosing the right capo for you will come down to your own needs and preferences. For example, if you play a 12-string acoustic, go with the Original C-Series 12-string capo. Featuring a patented locking action that provides an incredible combination of power, accuracy and speed, it's also slightly curved to fit any steel string guitar with a wide fretboard, and with one smooth flip of the lever, it locks securely in place on your guitar. Now if you're a resonator guitarist, go with the Resophonic. Based on the same mechanics as Shubb's regular guitar capo, this one is easy to attach and remove, and it's considered by many to be the best capo ever made for a resonator guitar.
As you can see, Shubb is an expert when it comes to capos. Specializing in a wide range for various stringed instruments since 1980, Shubb capos are precisely machined and carefully hand assembled, and this catalog has a model for every style and taste.
