The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

Shubb C4 Capo

The Shubb C4 Capo is for 7.25″ fretboard radius. It fits certain vintage electrics, notably some Teles and Strats. 

When the Shubb capo was first introduced more than 30 years ago guitarists throughout the world fell in love with it. They’re still in love with it today. Given it a few tweaks through the years, its basic mechanical principle remains the same: a unique over-center locking mechanism that 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.

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!

About the roller design: Shubb’s roller provides superior geometry. Beyond the advantages that are immediately apparent,

Machined at Shubb’s shop in Missouri, and left unplated. Plain, unplated brass will darken in time. For those of us who appreciate brass, we prefer this look; reminiscent of an old microscope, or a piece of gear from a sailing ship. But if you like your brass to shine, it can be polished with a cloth and most any commercial metal polish, and it will shine like gold.

What makes the Shubb capo so special?

For one thing, its ingenious design: its patented over-center locking action 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.

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.
