Rating and Reviews: Shubb C1 Original Capo

Lock your capo firmly into place with this nickel capo from Shubb. The rubber coating acts as a fingertip, which makes string bending and detuning foreign ideas.

Sound: I think what this capo does probably better than any of the others is that it keeps the guitar in tune and doesn't compromise the tone. Feature: The best feature of it is you can set the pressure of it to your liking and then use it again and again without adjusting. Kind of set it and forget it. Ease of Use: Extremely easy to use, if you need help using it you seriously need help.. Quality: Top notch quality, great material. I hear when the rubber finally does wear down you can get replacement rubber from the company. That speaks volumes for the longevity of the product. Value: I think it's not the most expensive and not the least expensive but it's as good as the more expensive ones. Manufacturer Support: Haven't dealt with them personally, so I can't attest. The Wow Factor: Simplistic but attractive design - kudos to the inventor! Overall: Probably will last me forever, considering I can get replacement rubber for it. If lost or stolen I would replace right away

Sound: nothing fancy, just the exact thing you need to create the sound you want. Feature: doesn't need a flashy look as long as you got your sound Quality: very durable for home or road use Value: others were more expensive, but it seemed like you were paying for a particular look that may or may not sound as good as this one. The Wow Factor: just a basic looking piece but it does what i wanted it to do Overall: seems like it will last a very long time, no need to replace

VERIFIED BUYER
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us.
Sound: I was previously using Dunlop capos on my acoustic guitar and was frustrated because the tension was not evenly distributed which led to severe tuning problems. That is not the case with this product. It is a pleasure to use and I have to retune less frequently with it. Ease of Use: Once you find a tension you like, it's simple. Quality: Seems very well made. The rubber pad is resiliant; overall does not seem flimsy. Value: Definitely worth the price - it's one instance of you get what you pay for.

Back to Product Information
Sound: It's basically all you need in a capo! Just great. I've been using this capo for five years now. Feature: It's very compact. It does not interfere with playing, it's easy to change or remove, and it does not catch your shirt sleeves ,) (like kaiser's do, for instance). Quality: Rubber pad is very durable. The only (kind of) weakness is the plastic slider tip, that wears of eventually - but you have to play A LOT!!! Mine is still holding up after five years of extensive use. You'll probably lose it during a gig sooner than you'll notice any wear... Value: The price is kind of steep, but it's worth it. Manufacturer Support: No service was needed, and that's why it's a 10. Actually, the company has provided all the nesessary info on how to get this thing replaced, and it looks like they mean it. The Wow Factor: I'll buy another one, definitely.

SPOTLIGHT REVIEW
Sound: Does not take away from the sound of the guitar. That makes it the best. Ease of Use: doesn't mess up tuning. It is easy to use. Quality: Quality is super. Value: It is a bargain. There are some that cost more, but they are not as good. Shubb is the best. Manufacturer Support: I emailed them to ask about various models, etc. and got a very helpful response the same day from Shubb himself. You can't beat that. Overall: It seems like it will last forever, but I have bought three of them, just so that I always have one handy.
