Shubb C6B Dobro Capo for Resophonic Guitars, Brass
The Shubb C6B Capo for Dobro was designed with the cooperation of the Gibson company to fit on Dobro brand guitars. For about a year it was packaged with the Dobro logo, and marketed by both Shubb and Gibson. In addition to fitting the Gibson Dobro brand guitars, it will also fit other brands of resophonic guitars, as long as they are set up to play "Hawaiian style," using a bar, with high string action (3/8" – 1/2" above the fretboard).
Unlike other Dobro capos that attach only to the strings, the Shubb C6B clamps solidly to the neck to provide great tone. It uses the same patented locking action as other Shubb capos, and it aligns by touching the fret, not by sight, making it fast and accurate. This is the best capo ever put on a resophonic guitar!
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.
