Shubb C5-R Banjo Capo for Curved Fretboards, Polished Nickel
The Shubb C5 Standard Capo for banjos is the choice of millions of musicians world wide. Crafted from nickel-plated brass, the C5 capo features an upgraded design that utilizes a roller wheel for smoother action, superior geometry, and reduced wear. Shubb also added a contoured lever allowing for easier use and rounded ends that are softer to the touch.
Designed to fit banjos and mandolins with radiused fretboards, the Shubb C5-R capo is 1.5" wide and curved. Most banjo, mandolin, or bouzouki fretboards do NOT have a radius. If you’re not sure, chances are that yours is flat.
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!
