Best capo I used so far
zarzonis 02.02.2020
I play guitar for 17 years. Ιn those years, I used many capos. Some were good and others were horrible. Shubb C1 is without a doubt the best capo I used so far. I'm not claiming that this is the best capo there is because that would mean that I tried every capo available. I'm pretty sure though that it's one of the best. It may be a little more expensive that other capos, but it's not super expensive. The fact that it does the job so well completely justifies the cost. Even though that it's advertised as a steel strings guitar capo, it even works great on my classical guitar.

Pros:
- Excellent fit with all of my guitars(one acoustic, one electric and one classical guitar)
- Small size compared to other capos I used in the past
- Adjustable tension
- Solid construction
- Good rubber protection for the neck

Cons:
- Nothing so far to be honest. If I had to be picky, I would prefer a black color option.

To sum up, Shubb C1 is a solid capo and I would definitely recommend it to anyone in need of a capo. I would buy it again if I had to.

Shubb C1 - 2mm short of perfect
Anonymous 02.01.2016
I bought the Shubb C1 for use with both electric and accoustic guitars and so far as the electric guitar is concerned, I love the design, it has a good quality feel and it performs well.

However, I have one criticism, certainly concerning the website description (..if not the design), which states that it is good for electric/accoustic guitar.

In my view it is only good for accoustic guitars with the more slender profile necks and the description should be changed accordingly. While of course there can be considerable variation in neck cross section, I have an electro-accoustic with a neck that is basically as per classical guitar and the rubber sleeve which presses the strings is exactly the same length as the distance across all six strings (50mm), which does NOT work. I feel slightly let down and find it most annoying when there's absolutely no reason why the metal component wouldn't allow the rubber sleeve to be just a couple of mm longer, which would then adequately fulfill both functions. In my view it is only suitable for a string span of ideally 46mm or 47mm at most. Why can't this be stated?

Well well well

If it isn't the best capo around. Yep - this one is the capo to get. Nope, no need to read further, this is the one. However, besides that - here are some things to care for:

Before this, I had a cheapo capo that came along with a guitar maintenance set, it was good enough - had to manually adjust the spring tension every once in a while, as the middle parts would not be completely pressed down, but rather slightly "muted".

As soon as I got this capo - I've put it on the guitar and started carefully plucking the strings. Unless I really put it in a bad spot - all strings ring out as they should.

If you are looking to buy your first (and most likely the only) capo - look no further, but here is a friendly piece of advice. All capos I came across have metal construction - so, you cannot just play around with these recklessly, it can be easy to scrape your beautiful guitar finish or even worse, do some damage to the frets themselves. This is, of course, if you are completely reckless with it, hell, if you drop your smartphone on your guitar you can damage it. (it should go without saying, but I'm telling this from the experience I've seen other guitarists make)

A buy-it-for-life capo, versatile
NiceBenton 07.02.2020
I had ca. 6 different capo's over the years, everything from 3e to 45e in cost. I got ripped off with that last one. All the other designs, nylon strap, spring-loaded etc do not work as well for me as this one. It is plenty fast to use in live situations and unlike other capo's does not mess with the tuning or string position, thanks to the fine adjustment screw.

I appreciate that it is a nearly all metal (very poroven) design by a company that has been around and a standard forever.

I have used it for my acoustic, electric guitar, as well as bass as well as tiny guitalelle, seems to fit almost everything.

I am a practical person, I highly recommend this one, I see no point in spending less on a capo I will replace or which doesn't work as well, nor in spending more on a capo that may not last as long.
