Planet Waves CP04NS vs Shubb C2

JohnnyPuckett, 26.03.2017
After 18 years of acoustic guitar I needed some change and got a cheap Yamaha C40. I play a lot with Kapo, so I had to get one for the Yamaha.
For my Western I have a Shubb C1 (old version with Pin instead of cogs), which is about 17 years old and probably indestructible. Therefore, it was obvious that this time it will be a Shubb again (model C2, steel).

Irritated by many reviews, in which it was criticized that the Shubb C2 with just completely unscrewed screw could just just be clamped on the fingerboard, I ordered after some research the "Planet Waves CP04NS" with the same. For a week I tested both Kapos and finally decided quite clearly for the Planet Waves.

Shubb C2:
The new version of the Shubb is thinner than the old version and looks a bit more noble with the steel and the slightly curved clamp. Again, the processing is extremely valuable and I'm sure that the part is as indestructible as its predecessor (normal use provided ...). However, purely subjectively, I had the feeling that the old version closes much firmer by the pressure of the pin and can not be solved as easily as the new with cogs. Unfortunately, the negative experiences of many reviewers came true in use: the C2 could only be attached to the fourth fret with the screw turned out almost completely.
Also, the rubber pad, which presses down the strings, with 5,2cm extremely tight. To illustrate: The Yamaha C40 has a grip width of 5.4 cm in the 2nd fret, 5.5 cm in the 4th fret and 5.7 cm in the 7th fret. Since you have to put the capo already very carefully, because the pressure surface just fits just on all strings. This can be a problem with many 4/4. Personally, I would not want to use the C2 on a high-quality master guitar and I now believe that this is more intended for the smaller school and entry-level guitars.


Planet Waves CP04NS:
While the Shubb BEFORE the clamping screw is adjusted before clamping and can not be adjusted in the clamped state, the system of Planet Waves is a little different:
This is simply placed on the desired collar, then by turning the screw to generate the necessary pressure. In my first attempts, I was very surprised how little pressure the PW needed to prevent even a rattling of the strings. The rubber pad is 6.3cm more than wide enough for concert guitars - which extends over the entire fingerboard.
Occasionally it was criticized in reviews that the up and down to change the capo between the frets, was very annoying. I can not confirm. You do not have to completely spin off the PW to put it from one to the other. With me 2 turns are enough and then he can move easily - without him from the fingerboard abzuklemmen (!). And here, the PW even has the advantage over the Shubb:
The PW I put on the fingerboard and then in this position by turning the screw to adjust the pressure as I need it. Finished. When Shubb I have to screw in or out BEFORE to test then half the time whether the pressure is sufficient. Then disconnect the capo again, readjust the screw, reconnect ...
The PW I find it much easier to handle. Visually, this is of course unspectacular (black aluminum) than the Shubb - whether this is to be seen as a disadvantage or disadvantage, everyone must decide for themselves. For storage, it can be nicely clamped to the guitar neck.

I am so excited about the part that in the near future I will get a Planet Waves or the G7th for my western guitars, which has a similar clamping system - just to have some variety again. Nothing against Shubb, but the PW is one of the things that you bought after a long time back and forth to ask yourself "why have not I done that much earlier?"
For concert guitars I give the "Planet Waves CP04NS" my unrestricted purchase recommendation.
