What makes the Shubb capo so special? For one thing, its ingenious design: its patented over-center locking action provides an unrivaled 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. 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! Precisely machined and carefully hand assembled, a Shubb capo is manufactured without compromise. Simply holding one in your hand conveys a sense of quality. Snapping it solidly onto a guitar neck in about one second, and then playing without having to retune will confirm its reputation for excellence. In January of 2013 we upgraded the original nickel plated Shubb capo, giving it the roller and contoured lever formerly only available on our Deluxe; however, when you change something, some people will prefer the original. So for those who still want the "classic," the original Shubb capo as it has been for more than 30 years, we are continuing to make the ORIGINAL Shubb capo available with an unplated brass finish and an antique finish. The Shubb C2B Original Capo for nylon string guitars is the choice of millions of musicians world wide. The Shubb C2B has an unplated brass finish that will darken over time. The brass capo is left unplated for those who appreciate brass and prefer this look; however, if you like your brass to shine, it can be polished to shine like gold. The C2B is a great choice for instruments with gold hardware or for those that fancy a retro look. The C2B is 2.25" wide and flat making it the right choice for nylon string guitars that typically have wide, flat fretboards. Capos continue to come and go, but the fact remains for the guitarist who is serious about quality and intonation...nothing but a Shubb will do.
