For Banjo (also fits mandolin and bouzouki).
When the Shubb capo was first introduced about 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!
When we say that the roller provides superior geometry, we really mean it. Beyond the advantages that are immediately apparent, read more about this…
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.
Our model 5 capo — “for Banjo” —is 1.5″ wide, and it also fits most mandolins and bouzoukis, many tenor guitars, and other instruments with narrow fretboards.. The model 5 capo is available in these various styles:
Available for both flat and radiused fretboard. Most of these instruments have flat fretboards; if you’re not sure about yours, chances are it is flat.
