    Look Shubb makes a great Capo , no doubt -but the S1 is just too small for the standard 1 3/4 nut on an acoustic . Especially when your playing live and don’t have time to fiddle with it, in low lighting. I sent this back for the larger S3 the one which works for a 12 string , its bulletproof AND now fits all my acoustics . I don’t recommend the S1 for anything other than a 1 11/16th nut or smaller .Read more

    When this was purchased the description said it was made in USA. When it arrived it said designed in USA made in China. I complained to Amazon and they changed it to made in China. I avoid buying Chinese things because of human rights violations there. This is not as easy to use as the spring loaded clip on capos. It takes two hands to apply it. What is good about it is that it isn’t made of plastic. The tension can be adjusted for your specific guitar. I don’t use capos often. They are good for helping to adjust the action on guitars and setting the bow in the necks. Will this metal capo last? Probably. The rubber part that contacts the strings will wear the most. The rubber that presses against the back of the neck also might wear over time. I paid more for this because of the design. I’m expecting it to last decades. Since it is new I can’t attest to that. The adjustable tension is a benefit for a capo. That is another reason it was bought. Time will tell if this Chinese made capo will be a good one. Still disappointed that I was told a lie about where it was made. I see that it is still being described as made in USA. I wish I still had the package so I could photograph it and prove that it is made in China.Read more

    I have been using Shubb’s for years. The ONLY thing I dupidnt like about them is hey are a pain to keep clamped to the headstock and aren’t quick to use. No changing key in the middle of the song or quick song changes. That said the work well enough to not need to retune. I have tried 3 other moderately priced capos that supposedly work fine and you don’t need to retune..they are wrong. So I’m a little disappointed in my new Shubb’s. I have always had the kind with the non rolling nub and not the new rolling nud/cam. The issue is that the new ones won’t open as far as the old ones. These new ones will not work on a fat Gibson neck, a Martin with a deep V or even my very normal beater Recording King OM with a normal C neck. It seams to only be talleres to a thin C and that’s it. With the new capo design my normal not fat, not thin C neck is too tight at the 3rd fret unscrewed all the way and puts my guitar out of tune, same on every guitar I have except for thin C necks. I have one old one that I will treasure now….. I’m not sure what they were thinking with there current measurements but they literally won’t work correctly on 6 out of the 7 guitars I have now and only one is a “fat” neck. Are there no good reasonably priced capos any more?Read more

    I have always used spring capos, mostly Kaiser, because they are easy to put on with one hand. And you can stick them on the head when not being used. However I play guitar all day every day since I retired from working, and I have become more of a perfectionist. Also, I now play electric guitar most of the time. It started to really bother me when the spring capos pull strings even slightly out of tune. I decided to try a Shubb, after reading some Amazon reviews. I also had some experience with them, when I borrowed someone else’s capo. Well, I love this capo, especially when playing my electric guitar. The tension is even on all the strings, it always seems perfect. It is very easy to put on and take off and to move, but you need two hands. No big deal. When not in use, you can’t stick it on the guitar, and you need some place to put it. Not too much of a big deal, since I use a capo most of the time. And, well, I could figure out a safe place to put it (women’s clothes don’t always have pockets). I got this very fast, in a couple of days. I don’t remember the price, but it was reasonable. Amazingly, the local Guitar Center store does not carry these capos!! Why?? Anyway, if you care about being in tune all the time, a Shubb capo is worth the extra price and two-handed putting on.Read more

    I use this capo for both my acoustic and electric guitars and it’s brilliant. It’s easy to put on and there is no need for re-tuning. The adjustable tension makes this capo very versatile, and prevents the problem of too much pressure that you get with many other capos. The craftsmanship is excellent. I really like that it is made of stainless steel – it seems like it will last a lifetime, and is backed up by a lifetime warranty. While some other capos are easy to clip on the headstock when not in use, I just store this capo in my pick bag or pocket when not in use. I prefer not to have anything clamped to my guitar anyway as it seems like it could eventually cause some damage to the wood. If you buy this capo early in your guitar journey, you probably won’t feel the need to buy any others.Read more

    I purchased this S1 capo in March and didnt use it until recently. It claimed to an acoustic capo. It didnt fit my martin guitar (only the most popular acoustic guitar in the world) it did not fit properly. I tried ordering a different size with a different model number only to find that it is exactly the same junk. It doesnt fit. They change the number for the same item. I have an old capo from the same company but they changed their design. This is junk.Read more

    My first capo ( of another make) was not an adjustable type and simply pinched all the guitar strings at full force, which didn’t make it easier for me to play. One of the strings ( 1st e string) was particularly affected by the high tension caused by the capo and didn’t sound right everytime I used it and there was no way of adjusting it. So I did some research on capos and decided to purchase this product as I read lots of good reviews about it. Now I don’t have any issues playing by placing this capo on any of the fret positions, as any tension issues can be resolved by adjustment. So I am very pleased with my purchase. It’s a bit expensive, but a good capo is one of the tools you would need it if you are a serious guitarist.Read more

    This capo is really good, it is wide enough to fit across my Jose ramirez even down the neck to the 9 th fret. It is very quick to fit on and releaseRead more

    I was a beginner guitarist when I bought a capo. I initially did not buy this capo. That other capo was just a spring, too large, and I couldn’t play without hitting it. This Shubb capo clamps down based on leverage, and far smaller than my first so it doesn’t get in the way of playing. It is a good price, and good quality.Read more
