Nylon String Guitar, wide, flat fretboard. Our standard C-series capos now have the design features formerly available only on our deluxe models!
When the Shubb capo was first introduced more than 40 years ago guitarists throughout the world fell in love with it. 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 unique 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.
And 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!

Capos continue to come and go, but the fact remains for the guitarist who is serious about quality and intonation … nothing but a Shubb will do.

Nylon string guitars almost always have flat fretboards. But in today’s world of blending styles, there are a few hybrid guitars with nylon strings and radiused fretboards. These unusual guitars should use one of our model 3 capos.
