Shubb C1 Original Capo for Steel-String Acoustic Guitar or Electric Guitar (Nickel)

The original! Shubb's nickel capo locks firmly into place -- and prevents string bending and detuning with a rubber coating that performs like a fingertip.

"Could be the best capo ever.."
Probably will last me forever, considering I can get replacement rubber for it. If lost or stolen I would replace right away
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.
Features
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!

"What a difference!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase 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.

"Tried a lot of capos, and this is the best I've ever had."
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I tried a lot of capos, and the Schubb is the best I;ver ever had. The others I've tried either didn't get a tight enough grip, or they didn't contour with the fingerboard well enough to keep the strings from rattling.

"Shubb is the best."
This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful.
It seems like it will last forever, but I have bought three of them, just so that I always have one handy.
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.

Shubb C1 Original Capo Customer Review

I have been playing for almost 50 years. There has never been a capo this efficient nor effective

"Shubb"
Sound
It's basically all you need in a capo! Just great. I've been using this capo for five years now.
Features
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.
