Shubb C2B Original Brass Capo for Nylon String Classical Guitars
The Shubb C2B capo for nylon string guitars is crafted from brass and features the original Shubb capo design and a non-plated finish that will darken over time. The non-plated finish is for those who prefer the look of raw brass; however, if you like your brass to shine, it can be polished to shine like gold. It's a great choice for instruments with gold hardware or for anyone that fancies a retro look.
The C2B capo is 2.25" wide and flat, designed for instruments with wide, flat fretboards such as classical guitars, flamenco guitars, and some folk guitars. Nylon string guitars almost always have flat fretboards; however, in today’s world of blending styles, there are a few hybrid guitars with nylon strings and radiused fretboards. These unique guitars should use one of Shubb's model 3 capos.
When the Shubb capo was first introduced about 40 years ago, guitarists throughout the world fell in love with it and 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 patented over-center locking mechanism that 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.
