The Shubb Violet Sky Anniversary Edition Capo features an elaborate pattern inspired by a redwood frond laser etched over a deep, rich violet background; utilizing our durable Royale titanium finish. Iridescent, multicolored fittings make for an overall dazzling effect.

Violet Sky C1vs


The “Violet Sky” combines a variety of technical and aesthetic features to create a truly unique capo. Our violet is a deep and lush shade with a captivating shine made possible by our high-tech titanium finish. We then brand it with an original design we call “Sequoia” because the pattern resembles a redwood frond, something we relate to here in Northern California. Accented with iridescent hardware, the colors and designs meld together into something truly special. The first release in our Anniversary collection and a beautiful violet sunrise for many things to come this important celebratory year.

For Steel String Guitar

Our model 1 capos — “for Steel String Guitar” — fit almost all steel string guitars, acoustic or electric. The model 1 capo is available in these various styles:


Unless your steel string has an unusually shaped or oversized neck, any of the model 1 capos listed above is for you. Some exceptions:

•  If your 6-string, steel string guitar’s neck is wider than most, it might require our model 3.  (12-string) capo.

•  If your steel string guitar’s neck is thicker than most, it might require our model S3v, specially designed for the thick necks on some vintage guitars.

•  If  your vintage Fender has the more extreme radius of 7.25″, then it should use our model 4.

If you discover that you have gotten the wrong model, we’ll swap with you for the right one. We provide an exchange form for convenience, but it is not required.


Almost all steel string guitars have a radiused fretboard. There may be an occasional steel string with a flat fretboard, but they are rare; perhaps on custom built instruments.  For these rare instruments, our model 2 (“for Nylon String guitar”) is the right choice.

While the radii on steel string guitar fretboards are not all identical, they are well within the Shubb Capo’s range for a good fit. This is because its proprietary sleeve material is engineered to be ultra resilient; it conforms to the fretboard’s shape, while cushioning and pushing back on the strings … just like your finger does!
