The C1 is Shubb's most popular model. It fits most steel string guitars, acoustic or electric. It is crafted of brass, nickel plated, and polished to a mirror finish.
When the Shubb capo was first introduced about 40 years ago, guitarists throughout the world fell in love with it. The unique over-centre locking mechanism provides an unrivalled 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.
And the Shubb capo effectively avoids tuning problems. It's 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 centre. As a result, no re-tuning is necessary!
