Ukulele Capo: At a glance it looks like our banjo capo, but it closes onto a smaller neck, and accomodates a slightly wider fretboard. Testing on many brands confirms this capo is a perfect fit on all tenors, sopranos, concerts, and baritones ...except the occasional baritone with a very large neck. In these cases, our banjo capo (any model 5) is a good fit.
When the Shubb capo was first introduced more than 30 years ago guitarists throughout the world fell in love with it. They're still in love with it today. We've given it a few tweaks through the years, but its basic mechanical principle remains the same: a unique over-center locking mechanism that provides an unrivalled 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 capo is BY FAR the best at not creating tuning problems. Its soft, resilient rubber is specially designed to work just like a fingertip, so it doesn't bend the strings over the frets. Its closing action is just like your hand, so it doesn't pull the string off center. As a result, no re-tuning is necessary!
Nylon String: Crafted of solid stainless steel to resist nicks and scratches,
this capo will look just as beautiful years from now as it does today.
When the Shubb Capo was first introduced in 1980, capos were elevated to a whole new level. In 1998 the Shubb Deluxe pushed the envelope again. Many people thought that the original Shubb could not be improved, but with the Deluxe we introduced upgrades in materials, design, geometry and ergonomics. It became the flagship product of our line. Still made in our shop in Missouri and assembled by our crew in California, as it always has been.
