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.

Seems like a really cool capo. For the past few years I've utterly destroyed few G7 Nashville-type capos so this mechanism looks like a real improvement as you don't have to rely on a spring which can wear off in time. Tension is regulated as well so putting it on 2nd fret on Telecaster will work same if you put it on 9th fret on a baseball bat. The only downside is that the rubber sleeve doesn't look so robust as G7. I've never got to replace them on these. On the other hand this one is getting some string marks pretty fast. You can get sleeve replacement for a few bucks but I'd rather like not have to worry about it. Although the it's small and cute it is pretty tough and I wouldn't worry dropping it on a hard floor.

A
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?

C
reluctant at first, happy afterwards
Charaiveti 15.09.2022
i bought this one after one thomann employee recommended it to me, during my short visit there. i didn't like it in the beginning, but testing it afterwards extensively in live situations i realized how good it is. guitar stays in tune, you apply the right pressure on the strings and it is quite easy to place on the neck, once you get the knack of it. great tool at a good price, goverall.
